Easy Money Synopsis
Easy Money is a Swedish crime thriller based on the International best-selling book Snabba Cash by Jens Lapidus. The book is the first installment in Jens Lapidus’ Stockholm Noir Trilogy.
It interweaves the stories of three key players related to a Swedish drug trafficking ring. Lower-class business student JW (Joel Kinnaman from AMC’s ‘The Killing’) falls in love with a sexy heiress while living a double life mingling with Stockholm’s wealthy elite. To keep up the façade of his lifestyle, he’s lured into a world of crime. Jorge is a petty fugitive on the run from both the police and Serbian mafia. He hopes that brokering a massive cocaine deal will allow him to escape for good. Mafia enforcer Mrado is on the hunt for Jorge, but his efforts are complicated when he’s unexpectedly saddled with caring for his young daughter. As JW’s journey ventures deeper into the dark world of organized crime, the fate of all three men becomes entangled and ends with a dramatic struggle for life and death.
