False TrailSwedish director Kjell Sundvall returns to the big screen this December with False Trail (Jägarna 2), the follow-up to his 1996 crime-thriller, The Hunters (Jägarna).

Rolf Lassgård reprises his leading role from the original, alongside the great Peter Stormare, and with the film arriving on our shores next month, we’ve been given an exclusive set of images to share.

“Brought to you by the distributors of The Killing, Borgen and The Bridge, False Trail is the latest Nordic Noir thriller to hit the big screen in the UK. Set in an isolated town in the frozen wastelands of northern Sweden, False Trail is dark, twisted murder investigation that devastates a local community.

It’s been fifteen years since Erik (LASSGÅRD) was forced to leave the Norrland Police Department.  Since then he has become the National Murder Commission’s best interrogator.  When Erik’s boss orders him back to his home town to solve a brutal murder, he hesitantly returns as the thought of going back stirs up unpleasant memories.  What at first appears to be a simple murder soon proves to be something much more complicated, as Erik finds himself with a new nemesis, Torsten (STORMARE), to contend with and events take a much more sinister turn.”

Starring alongside Lassgård and Stormare will be Annika Nordin, Kim Tjernström, Lo Kauppi, Jesper Barkselius, Eero Milonoff, and Johan Paulsen.

Sundvall has reteamed once more with Björn Carlström, who penned the original, and has scripted the sequel alongside Stefan Thunberg (Wallander, Hamilton).

False Trail will be released in the UK on 14th December. The film looks like yet another terrific output from Scandinavia, and is sure to be a success when it lands here next month. For now, here are the new images from the film, which you can click through to enlarge.
