On the Loose is a 1985 Swedish film directed by Staffan Hildebrand and distributed by Föreningsfilmo AB. It stars Tomas Fryk and Carina Lindström and features appearances by rock 'n' roll singer Jerry Williams and the hard rock band Europe.


Peter works as a welder in his hometown Katrineholm, but dreams of getting a better job with more money. When Europe comes to Katrineholm to do a concert, Peter finds out that his girlfriend Nina had a relationship with the band's vocalist Joey Tempest many years ago. Peter thinks Nina wants to get back together with Joey, so he gets very jealous, gets drunk at the concert and goes berserk. The safety officer Frasse makes Peter realize he should pull himself together and go sort things out with Nina.
