Dirty Fingers (1973) -- A young woman dies from a drug overdose, and her brother and his friend try to find out who supplied her with the narcotics. Soon, they're chased all over Stockholm by the cruel but suave ring leader Harry and his thugs. Among the wildness is a fight in a brothel filled with naked girls, and when Servus, one of the thugs, fails to kill our heroes, Harry has his men kill Servus with a razor blade equipped glove. Oh, and the heroine is raped by a guy sucking on a comforter.
This Swedish film was a commercial and critical failure at its release in Sweden in 1972. Perhaps the time was not mature for this type of strange crossover film. SMUTSIGA FINGRAR is a mix of police thriller-filmnoir-sleaze-(unintentional comedy). It is modeled after American thrillers of the time, yet the screenwriter seem slightly ignorant of the genre. The characters are very stereotyped to the point of being caricatures. Yet this doesn't matter as the film becomes an explosive mix of thriller and comedy.
