Hassel is a 2017 drama in Swedish.
He is a rough cop who’s not afraid to use more than just unconventional means to get results: Hassel is a street-smart detective leading an organised crime task force in Stockholm. But when his father figure and mentor Ruda is brutally murdered, Hassel hits rock bottom. While Internal Affairs is looking at them for the murder, Hassel and his colleagues set out to find the killer on their own. As they dig deeper, sorted evidence comes to light and the image Hassel had of his mentor’s life starts to fall apart – just as his own personal life is crumbling.
