Hypnotisören (The Hypnotist)
Celebrated filmmaker Lasse Hallstrom adapts Lars Kepler's bestseller to tell the story of a psychiatrist who employs hypnotism as a means of identifying the killer who attempted to wipe out an entire family. With the son clinging to life following a vicious attack, the psychiatrist (Mikael Persbrandt) puts the boy in a trance in hopes of saving the killer's final victim before it's too late. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Dark and brooding, there's an intriguing mystery buried amongst the clichés and plot holes."
‑ Henry Northmore, The List
"It is not long before the recurrent motifs of sedative drugs, deep slumbers, comas and hypnosis have all come to highlight the film's soporific pace, making the viewer just feel sleepier and sleepier."
‑ Anton Bitel, Grolsch Film Works
"An inoffensive enough Nordic thriller that nevertheless completely blows its interesting premise."
‑ Shaun Munro, What Culture
