Vendetta is a Swedish film which was released to cinemas in Sweden on 10 February 1995,[1] directed by Mikael Håfström. It stars Stefan Sauk as the Swedish intelligence officer Carl Hamilton and as his adversary Don Tommaso, Ennio Fantastichini.[2] A television miniseries was filmed at the same time. It aired as 6 episodes of 50-60 minutes each.

Plot[edit]

Carl Hamilton gets assigned to go to Sicily in order to free two Swedish business men who are kept captured by a local villain named Don Tommaso. The Don wants a Swedish naval robot system in exchange for his hostages. In the beginning Hamilton acts merely as a negotiator, but when he cannot accept the demands of his counterpart the situation escalates.

Hamilton stands up against Don Tommaso, while abduction and murder becomes the language of negotiation. A classical vendetta has been initiated, as narcotics from Colombia and the Italian intelligence community become involved.
