“Easy Money” is a real descent into hell for the hero. More than a simple thriller, this film of extraordinary realism is doubly interesting in the development of the central character JW and his relationship with others! We really follow closely how this bright student gradually develops into a different being, as and when he meets … His game is getting better and better …
A film that immerses us in Stockholm, dark, far from the clichés of the postcards. A young student, very knowledgeable, by the lure of profit, moves to the other side. Investing actors.
I enjoyed this first part.
Good Swedish cinema
Yes. There is more bad than good in this movie. In the genre we see better, right?
I left after 20 minutes without understanding anything

Easy Money is inspired by Swedish author Jens Lapidus’ best-selling novel, “Easy Money”, the first volume of the “Black Stockholm” trilogy. A prominent lawyer above all else, Lapidus participated in the trials of notorious criminals. It was in the courts, by closely observing the underworld of Stockholm, that he took the necessary inspiration to write his novels, which are now bestsellers in the world. Although very different from the book, the cinematic version
Easy Money bases its plot on a new and problematic phenomenon in Sweden: the rise of organized crime. In fact, in recent years, the country has suffered from the presence of various gangs or mafia groups. Violence, criminality, weapons and drug trafficking are all problems that are constantly increasing in Sweden. The movie offers the viewer a dive with the main character in these environments
Start the project
In 2007, shortly after the release of the novel by Jens Lapidus, the producer Fredrik Wikström had the idea of a film adaptation of this story which was not yet successful. After obtaining the rights, he contacted the director Daniel Espinosa, who wanted the project to be shot as realistically as possible. The filmmakers also benefited from the author’s advice during the writing process
