Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Kopps

Life is easy in the small Swedish town of Höbotraesk, especially for the police. The four officers -- Jacob, Benny, Lasse, and Agneta -- pass the time eating sausage waffles, playing poker and street hockey, and drinking coffee. One day, a gorgeous blonde from the government, Jessica (Röse), informs them that because there has been no crime in their town, their station will be closed down in three months. The panicked crew realizes they may have to manufacture a crime wave to justify their survival. It starts small -- a little vandalism and grafitti -- but with the help and imagination of the town drunk, Göran (Harry Goldstein), and other friends, our heroes are soon fighting (or at least imagining and reporting) terrorist shootouts and kidnappings. This delightfully silly 2003 Swedish film includes special effects/quotes from "The Matrix" and "Back to the Future," as well as references to Rambo, American Psycho, Die Hard 3 and other American thrillers that particularly appeal to Benny. The bad news: Adam Sandler has bought the rights to make an American version. . . .
