It is once again smouldering in northern Sweden. Out there where everyone knows everyone else, and all are best off, taking care of their own potatoes. A young girl has disappeared, and Erik Bäckström has to reluctantly leave his more comfortable life in Stockholm, and return to his native region to help find her. But Erik is far from being welcomed by the locals. For in spite of the rural mystique, there is no desire for outside interference. Life here is basically quite simple. The youngsters drive around on their motorbikes, while the adults go hunting. Here, a spade is a spade and a problem is something you take care of yourself. Definitely not for so-called 'experts' from the capital to interfere in. But Erik is not put off, particularly when he slowly begins to find out, where the clues are pointing. What initially looked like a routine case, gradually develops into a worse nightmare than Erik ever could have imagined. It is now 15 years, since 'The Hunters' took the Danish audiences by storm, and now the same team is here with the sequel which, however, requires no knowledge of the first film. 'False Trail' is a gripping Swedish thriller in its own right, and is eminently set in the northern Swedish landscape.
