HAMILTON: MEN INTE OM DET GÄLLER DIN DOTTER
|"The Swedish James Bond", agent Carl Hamilton (created by author Jan Guillou in 1986), returns to the big screen for the second time this year. Men inte om det gäller din dotter (2012), the second of three books in production, opens in Swedish cinemas on September 7, 2012. (One day after FSWL's 8th anniversary.)
Carl Hamilton once had a family. But it was completely wiped out in an act of revenge, and now the abduction of his 7-year-old goddaughter Nathalie brings back intensely painful memories. When Nathalie's veiled picture shows up on Internet, it becomes clear that the kidnapping is directed at her mother, Ewa Tanguy, head of the Swedish Security Police. Someone intends to convert her daughter to fundamentalist Islam. As the Swedish authorities remain passive, Hamilton is forced to take action. With the aid of his close friend Mouna, he manages to track down the kidnappers. Nathalie has been abducted by an immensely wealthy Saudi oil magnate, who wishes to set an example to the world, counting on his oil assets to protect him against any international intervention. However, he does not bargain on Agent Hamilton, along with a few of his brothers-in-arms, planning a deadly rescue mission against his desert fortress. Only too late does Hamilton become aware of the unexpected powers siding with the Saudi magnate.
