The film is based on true events surrounding the so called Norrmalmstorg drama, one of the most
well-known events in modern Swedish history. A number of people try to rob a bank on Norrmalm's square,
but fail and instead take a number of employees hostage in the bank vault. Negotiations with the robbers
are started and even Olof Palme is called in as negotiator. Clark Olofsson is let into the vault to
mediate. Furthermore The Norrmalmstorgsdrama is known for giving rise to the psychological term
Stockholm syndrome, because of the fact that the hostage became sympathetic towards the hostage takers.
