The Jonsson Gang (Se Upp för Jönssonligan) is a reboot of Sweden’s all-time favourite comedy franchise Jönssonligan.
Following a failed heist, Charles-Ingvar ‘Sickan’ Jonsson ends up in prison. Once released, his gang have become law-abiding citizens and Sickan has to continue on his own. Crime broker Anita tasks him with a simple burglary which turns out to be something a lot bigger than Sickan thought. Now he needs the help of his past accomplices to carry out the most difficult heist in the history of the gang.
From Tomas Alfredson, director of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy and Let The Right One In.
