The 16th Johan Falk film, Lockdown, with Jens Hultén (one of Silva's men in Skyfall (2012)) in the role as Seth Rydell, premieres in Sweden on 23rd July 2015.

"The third and final season of the Johan Falk film series is much like the previous two, both well written and engaging. The thing that stands out in the final season is a better direction and denser scheme. Jens Hultén, in the role of now legendary Seth Rydell, remains outstanding and the icing on the cake."
Anders Frejdh, founder and editor in chief of FSWL

Synopsis: (translated by FSWL)
An attack occurs inside the large police house in Gothenburg with the police management immediately putting the building in "lockdown", no one can come in or out. Almost simultaneously a large trial in the building next door commences. It’s Seth Rydell's (JENS HULTÉN) nemesis Vijay Khan (ALEXANDER LANGE) requesting reconsideration of his judgment as it has emerged that GSI possibly used illegal methods.

Meanwhile, Helen Falk's (MARIE RICHARDSON) ex-boyfriend, Örjan Bohlin (JOHAN HEDENBERG), pops up with a number of documents that he has stolen in Estonia. Documents that could be the solution to identifying the unknown, large mafia organization that has threatened Johan and his family. When Örjan hands over the documents to Helen - who has hinted that if he helps the family he can meet with his pregnant daughter Nina (HANNA ALSTERLUND) and his granddaughter in the future - they do not notice that the mafia constantly have followed Örjan heels.


Johan Falk - Lockdown is the fourth of five new films in the tough and intensely exciting story of Gothenburg's special police force, GSI. The film is inspired by true events, real life crimes, police and undercover agents.
