While the story itself may lack originality, the miserablist milieu is affectingly real.

Intense newcomer Gustave Dyekjaer Giese manages to retain our sympathy even as Casper's story runs along predictable lines in this flinty thriller.

July 24, 2014
The latest item carried over on the Scandi crime wave forsakes chunky-knit sweaters for a notional harder edge, offering a naturalistic study of a teenage cat burglar caught between rival factions on the Copenhagen periphery.

Empire Magazine
July 24, 2014
Noer, whose gritty drama R won such raves in 2010, returns with another corrosive look at the criminal underbelly of his native land.

July 23, 2014
Unflashy and doc-like, this is the opposite of Nordic noirs like 'The Killing'.

July 21, 2014
The spiral into violence is not unexpected, but the details are so confidently handled that it's still a gripping watch.

Noer draws energetic turns from these non-pros, while demonstrating a real grasp of the grimy milieu. Just a pity the plot is so by-the-numbers.

The idea that a poor kid might get recruited into the underworld lifestyle by a surrogate family of criminals isn't anything new, but the whole thing is so well executed and the details so specific to Copenhagen that it never feels trite.
