Based on Jonas Jonasson’s hugely successful debut novel, many wondered if it was even worth trying to adapt this completely crazy, ridiculous and bizarre novel into a film.

Director Felix Herngren took on the task and took the Swedish audience by storm. As a measure of success, it seems like the film will do better in the box office than the hugely successful adaptations of the Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy (check out this article for more similar novels).
