Sweden’s unlikeliest thieves plot a new heist as the Swedish-language comedy-drama returns. Gastroenterologist Cecilia (Sissela Kyle, Miss Friman’s War) and teacher Jenny (Lotta Tejle, The Sandhamn Murders) are living comfortably having pulled off their bank robbery. But when Jenny’s daughter is passed up for a scholarship and Cecilia’s frustration with her job reaches a boiling point, the two friends decide it’s time for another heist. The daring duo target a valuable art installation but stealing the artwork and selling it off proves a greater challenge than they planned. In addition to dodging the police, they must also contend with a vengeful biker gang and Jenny’s jealous boyfriend. How far will they go to reach their goal?
Blending crime thriller with subtle comedy, The Simple Heist shines with droll humor and pointed social commentary.
