25 best police movies ever
Jar City (2006)
This grim crime drama follows hangdog Inspector Erlendur's investigation into the murder of a criminal and the death of a child in the 1970s – so far, so predictable. But Jar City draws on Iceland's unique qualities to create a film quite unlike the usual Hollywood fare.
The chilly landscape, the country's small population and the resulting strong ties between the present and past generations lend Jar City a unique quality. Probably won't do much for Icelandic tourism, though.
