Commander Hamilton is a movie based on the series of books by Swedish writer Jan Guillou about Carl Hamilton – Coq Rouge (see also the Knight Templar). This series topped the bestseller lists in all the Scandinavian countries.
Commander Hamilton is an action-packed suspense thriller, starring Peter Stormare (Fargo, Nacho Libre) as the Swedish 007, Carl Hamilton. Together with his Finnish secret-service counterpart, Hamilton must find and disarm a smuggled nuclear weapon. The action ranges from Scandinavia to the steppes of Russia in the hunt for the bomb.
Mark Hamill (Star Wars) plays the American villain and the beautiful Swedish actress Lena Olin (Chocolat, Alias, The Unbearable Lightness of Being) plays Hamilton’s love, Tessie. Peter Stormare does a good job as Carl Hamilton.
