Slim Susie (Swedish: Smala Sussie) is a 2003 Swedish comedy-crime film. It was directed by Ulf Malmros and written by Malmros and Petteri Nuottimäki. It is considered Ulf Malmros most popular film.[1]

Plot[edit]

The film is set in a small industrial town in Värmland, where a young man returns to his hometown from Stockholm to investigate the sudden disappearance of his sister. Initially meeting little success with his inquiries, performed through the rekindling of brief acquaintances with the very odd characters of his youth, he begins to form a picture of what has happened.
