The Last Sentence

Not Yet Rated| 2 hr. 6 min.

Plot Summary

'The Last Sentence' is set against the backdrop of WW2, and is based on the life of crusading journalist Torgny Segerstedt, editor-in-chief of one of Sweden’s leading newspapers, and his one-man battle against Nazism and his country’s policy of appeasement to Hitler.  
With Sweden caught between Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Russia, the country’s elites chose a policy of neutrality and compliance, with few daring to speak up against the evil around them.  Among those who did, nobody was as loud and as uncompromising as Segerstedt (Danish star Jesper Christensen, Nymphomaniac: Volume 1, Melancholia), one of the most prominent Swedish journalists of the 20th century.  In the eyes of many of his countrymen, his pen was far more dangerous than the Nazi sword.  Amidst the political turmoil of the era, Segerstedt’s own personal life took a dramatic and scandalous turn as he entered into a very public affair with Maja Forssman, the Jewish wife of his close friend, the newspaper’s publisher.
