Easy Money






There’s no such thing as ‘easy money’ in Stockholm’s dark underworld.

There’s a price to pay for everything.

Poor business student JW (Joel Kinnaman) is living a double life mingling with the wealthy elite. To keep up the façade of his exclusive lifestyle and to capture the attention of a sexy heiress, he’s lured into a world of crime to make some quick cash.

When JW crosses paths with a fugitive on the run from both the police and the mafia, they hope that brokering a one-off cocaine deal will allow them to escape from their past for good.

But when a mafia enforcer hunts them down, JW’s journey ventures deeper into the dark world of organised crime, and the fate of all three men becomes entangled in a dramatic struggle between life and death.

Easy Money has been championed by Martin Scorsese, and you can see why: Espinosa’s balance of tension and violence with empathetic characterisation owes much to the legacy of his illustrious supporter.

Looking for the perfect gift this Christmas? Pick up a copy of this slick, tense and effortlessly stylish thriller that will draw you in, and just keep tightening its grip.
