Kubricks „The Killing“ updated in real life

killingIn Schweden haben sie eine Pferderennbahn im großen Stil überfallen und dabei angeblich über eine Million Kronen erbeutet („siebenstellig“, also mindestens 1 Mio Kronen bzw. 100k Euro). Die Flucht haben sie mit Krähenfüßen gesichert und hatten dann noch ein Boot am Start.

Das alles erinnert mich wirklich sehr an einen meiner Alltime-FilmNoir-Favorites, Stanley Kubricks The Killing. Darin planen ein paar Männer den Überfall auf genau so eine Pferderennbahn und der Heist wird dann minutiös inszeniert. Unbedingt ansehen, ganz großes Actionkino. Das hier könnte das Remake sein, am besten verfilmt von einem dieser zeitgenössischen französischen Actionfilmer. Nur halt gehen bei The Killing alle drauf, hier nicht:

The trio hit the betting office at Bro Park racecourse in Upplands-Bro at around 7pm just 20 minutes after the last horse passed the finish line on the final day of a weekend of races. “The men ran into the building and threatened a lot of people, among others the staff at Bro Park. One person had an assault rifle pointed to their head,” a witness told racing newssite Travronden. After seizing what tabloid Aftonbladet reported as a seven-sum figure – although neither police nor organizers were able to immediately confirm this – they fled the scene by car.

Police said caltrops were used to hinder their pursuit of the robbers. A burned-out vehicle was later found north of the crime scene and according to Aftonbladet the group then continued by boat on Lake Mälaren. “We found a burning car, which is not to say that it is the getaway car, but we cordoned it off. There's nothing concrete after that. We are not ruling anything out, we'll see what we find,” police spokesperson Lars Byström told the newspaper.
