  • The story follows an ex-con who works undercover for the Stockholm police and is charged with breaking the Polish mob's stranglehold on amphetamine dealing in Sweden prisons. The ex-con gets himself arrested so he can infiltrate the mob in a maximum security prison. Beyond the fact his wife is unaware he's working undercover, the operative's challenge is to crack the ring and get out before he's exposed.
