American Steven Kinnaman was one of those who received political asylum in Sweden after being deserted. Despite the amnesty that was issued in the U.S. later, he stayed, and I live in Åsöberget in Stockholm. Photo: Ingvar KarmhedAnger against the war, the Swedes to look outwardsHow could a handful of protesters lit a whole country?Svenska Dagbladet has entered the Swedish FNL movement's founder, Sköld Peter Matthis, 66.- Never had I imagined that the commitment would be so great for a country on the other side of the world, says a slightly grizzled Sköld Peter Matthis when we meet at St. Erik's Eye Hospital in central Stockholm, where he works as an ophthalmologist.Although it did four decades, he recalls that strategic June day in detail. How he and a dozen fellow students in a student organization Clarte stood in the square with their banners they barely managed to hold up before the police called in reinforcements via police radio. This time the group had chosen Haymarket instead of U.S. embassy to protest against a war they experienced as more and more unjust.Already in the New Year of 1965, when the U.S. began its escalation of the war, they understood that Vietnam could become the spark. It would be beautiful Swedish commitment to the injustices in the Third World.- None of us knew someone from Vietnam, we hardly knew where it was. But by reading everything we came across, especially in American newspapers critical of the regime, we realized the magnitude of what was happening.Since it has become increasingly difficult to reach the U.S. embassy, police intervened often already in Strand, they decided to locate the demonstration to a more popular target - Haymarket.- We saw it primarily as a pure awareness campaign. We wanted to tell people what was happening, that a small country without resources were being invaded by a superpower.Although they informed the police in advance of the campaign the police intervened quickly and required them to take down their placards. The demonstrators refused. Seven police cars were called to the scene, press and the public flocked to and tumult arose.Sköld Peter Matthis was arrested and later sentenced for having disturbed the public order and to "have committed heavy in the body."Sköld Peter Matthis responded by suing the police in a civil case. He said it was police fault that it was riot.Not surprisingly, he lost and was sentenced to 19 thousand dollars in damages. Money that later were collected by the movement.The incident with an impact in the media and caused heated debate. The newspapers began to question what was happening in Vietnam and people began to get involved.- We received a strong boost. Five days later we were out on the Haymarket, and marched again, says Sköld Peter Matthis.The commitment and the growing public opinion led to the birth of what would become a new popular movement in Sweden, National Liberation Front, the Front National de Liberation, in solidarity with the South Vietnamese liberation movement.Stockholm was first. In the autumn were also formed groups in Gothenburg, Linköping, Lund, Söderhamn, Uppsala and Örebro.The whole left movement was hanging on, including the cultural elite. FNL movement became a force to be reckoned with in the community. This commitment had a clear popular profile and permeated not only the media and cultural life but also street life. We are many who remember the rattling FNL guns, the loud sellers of Vietnam Bulletin and the constant demonstrations.The climax was reached in 1972 when the FNL groups, employers and VPK united in a single gigantic demonstration at Railway Square in Stockholm, which attracted over 50,000 supporters.When peace came in 1975 transformed the movement into a league of friendship with Vietnam and Laos to dissolve completely when Vietnam invaded Kampuchea (now Cambodia) year 1978-1979. But the commitment and way of working lives on in the new social movements.In retrospect, what are you steaming?- Yes, we did not do more to provide us with other groups in society. FNL movement was a typical youth movement. This created a tendency toward isolation from the majority of the people. Had we acted in time, we could have avoided the split that came later.Why you turned a blind eye to what was going on elsewhere in the world, Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, for example?- It's not true. We are treating the actual requirement of the Soviet withdrawal from Czechoslovakia to the requirement of the U.S. departure from Vietnam.Why could not hear the cries?- The spirit was one. Smokey and the second winds. Now folkopionen the only counter-force against the U.S., says Sköld Peter Matthis, which is still active in the antiwar movement.The Swedish Vietnam Movement history:New Year 1965: A group of members of the socialist student organization Clarte begins to demonstrate outside U.S. embassy calling for the U.S. leaving Vietnam.May 1965: Vietnam begins Bulletin is published in Stockholm.June 1965: Sköld Peter Matthis seized by police during a demonstration.August 1965: Swedish Vietnam Committee formed by the pacifists and the country's first FNL group started in Stockholm as an act of solidarity with the liberation movement in South Vietnam with the same name, the Front National de Liberation.1966: National Collection of Vietnam launched by the Swedish Vietnam Committee and supported by all parliamentary parties.Autumn 1966: Annual solidarity campaigns for Vietnam begins at 160 locations in the country.August 1967: FNL groups are joining forces in a nationwide federal DFFG, Joined FNL groups.February 1968: Education Minister Olof Palme was participating in a demonstration along with Nordvietnamns ambassador in Moscow.January 1969: Sweden recognizes the governmentin North Vietnam.May 1970: U.S. Ambassador hit by egg at a demonstration in Glanshammar.September 1970: The petition U.S. out of Indochina started at the initiative of FNL groups and collect 356,983 signatures.May 1972: 50,000 demonstrate against war at Railway Square in Stockholm.December 1972: U.S. bombing Hanoi and Olof Palme compares to a much-publicized speech bombing with the atrocities of the Nazi era.May 1975: The war ends and the FNL movement, released for being a league of friendship with Vietnam and Laos to disintegrate when attacking Vietnam Kampuchea year 1978-79.

The role of "Fast Cash" also meant that he moved back to Stockholm after six years in Malmo and Gothenburg. - It was a bit schizo when I got home again. I would get back to my old role of the private as I could see JW. It was a tough period. I lost myself there a little.
Something that he came up with was pretty good for the role of the character. - I felt pretty rootless and embraced that feeling, it was good for the role. Many thoughts I had, I knew in the end is not whether they were due to the role or to myself really felt that way. I was not very happy and felt depressed, but it was worth it. Could you have no private intercourse during this period? - Absolutely, I am very social to me and need to have people around me all the time. But maybe I was not the most pleasant person to be with at the time. I was sad, melancholy and a little insecure. Are there any similarities between you and JW? - JW will of course many extreme decisions, both bold and reckless, just like I did. I could also be quite limitless in some situations, especially when I was younger. Now I've calmed me down. What did you do? - It's about a desire to try new things, new experiences ...everything! To live life to the fullest, do not let the fear of something limiting one. I have really done some stupid stuff. You've never been in trouble? - Yes, I have really done. But I've always been good at taking me out of them ha ha. Have you ever been in trouble with the justice? - Yes, when I was younger I had trouble with the police. I went out and fought and went there for assault. It was fine and Social connected. But it is time-barred. What has made you less limitless today? - You've matured and have not so much to prove anymore. I was very cheeky as a teenager and not always so kind. I was insecure and tense. Were you a bully? - Yes, both. I both bullied and were bullied. I hung pretty tough guys, but was not so tough himself. Is there something on your mind today? - No, it's there but there are a lot of people who have been harmed. Adolescence is a damn difficult time. I could be pretty nasty actually. But I'm pretty good today.

Who is the nicest?
- My definition of nice is when someone laughs at my jokes so then I say, Malin Akerman. She was sick nice and more like a normal friend than a superstar. Cecilia Forss has very good self-distance and is a nice shit. And Izabella Scorupco. We bonded really good. I said she was the most beautiful in the world and she said I looked like her. The finest compliment I ever received.
Who's the nastiest?
- Joel Kinnaman. I make an assessment based on only one occasion but he has only himself to blame. I and a colleague asked if we could take a picture with him of peace, on Way Out West Press / VIP area. Then he replied, jätteöverlägset and acid: "NO NO NO, I do not do that." Then he put on his big sunglasses, even though it was pitch black outside, and went out among the mere mortals in the field.

Malin Roos hits Joel Kinnaman for a great interview.

LONDON. He fights for Hollywood roles with his friend Alexander Skarsgard and is now looking for his film career in the U.S. But when Sweden calls, Joel Kinnaman will. Maybe. - When there is something really special in Sweden, what I would like to be with. But now they may nag for six months.It's the middle of the night at the mall North Town and the final scene of what will be the next feature film about John Falk and his task force, to be recorded. Jakob Eklund is getting ready to shoot the head of "Russian number one" and Joel Kinnaman gets some new blood painted on the neck. The 31-year-old actor-player grabs a young assistant from the series who is on the way out: - Nicotine, two milligrams! A few hours earlier, I have half an hour with the returning star in a hotel lobby in Gothenburg."Karaktärer mogno"
I think. Press contact that has raked in the interview looks stretched out when he says that Joel just wants to talk one quarter hour, and it must be when he eats. Hollywood manners, I think and sit down at the pink-fried steak. What is it like to be back as Frank Wagner, we've just gotten used to you is Stephen Holder of "The Killing"? - It's fun to take a break with characters and get back to them. Characters ripen when you put them on the shelf for a while. It's like with a good book, you can find new things when you read about it, said Joel Kinnaman, but turned down a continuation of John Falk first, in the next six films, he is only in two, then it is about a few scenes."A question of loyalty”
- I humbly said no thanks to a second season. Not that it was not interesting in any way, Frank is truly one of my favorite characters. We talked back and forth for six months. - But Joakim Hansson (producer) has supported me ever since the beginning of my career, so it was a question of loyalty, says the Stockholmer."It was pretty damn funny"
Because, really, he has no time. The guy who broke through broad as JW in "fast cash" has now Hollywood career to consider. In addition to the TV series "The Killing", which has rolled on TV4 this summer, Kinnaman has this year played In "Dark House" with Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds, and the romantic comedy "Lola Versus' who got himself in love with New York. - It was pretty damn fun. I've been psyched on staying in New York a long time and now I'm going there in October and check out apartment. I think that New York will be my base. But even if I have a base I'll just be there about eight weeks a year. - What is so much better to shoot in the U.S.? - There are more resources, bigger productions. You become a little more care (do not have journalists in the food?). Are you on a shooting location, you always have a place to be. - It is smågrejer which still makes it a little easier to concentrate."Otroligt smickrad"
- On the other hand, there are more producers who are with and think than in Sweden. If you want to change something where everything has taken another turn, it can become a bit tedious. Frank Holder, JW, it feels like you've got a bit of infiltrators slot? - Yes, but it's quite fun, as an actor end up in the chameleon-slot is an advantage, roles that play different roles in their daily lives. It is among the best role you can get, I'm incredibly flattered, he says, and admits he probably has a slight advantage compared to other European actors. Having grown up with a father who is an American means that he will not play a Pole and a German camp guard. - Of the five things I have done in the U.S. so far are three of the roles of Americans. It's fun to have got into it so well. The "safe house" for example, I am a guy with a Texas accent."Fullt av porrfilmer"
And he is all too familiar with Texas. When Joel Kinnaman was at his most troubled youth, his parents sent him as an exchange student to the U.S., to a family outside of Austin, Texas. - I ended up with a hosts named Terry and Tina Turner. They talked baby talk to each other and had eleven dogs that lived in the house. - Other days when I got there, Tina Turner asked: Joel, do you want to watch a movie? We have a whole cupboard full of movies, says the actor who was dying when he opened the cupboard. - I wish it had been full of porn videos that would have been more normal, but it was full of cartoons. - Two fifty year olds with an entire cupboard full of cartoons .... lunatics. Sounds like you have a better experience there now? - You could say that, haha.First audition
Speaking of signed, it is true that you were considered for superhero movie "Thor"? - Yes, it was actually the first audition I did for an American project. I submitted a tape and it was the only thing I did. One day, my sister called and said it was about me in The Guardian. - Someone had leaked that the role was between five actors. And one of the other was Alexander Skarsgård? - Yes, if I were to try to think of any actor who would play Thor, Alex is perfect, much more than myself. I would play Thor very remote, said Joel Kinnaman who knows the Skarsgards privately, mostly Gustaf. - Me and Gustaf are best friends. We have known each other since we were 13, but I know their whole family. Is there a chance that you and Alexander are competing for roles in the U.S.? - Yes, but me and Alex are up for the same stuff all the time and so it was with me and "Gurra" here at home as well. But if you start thinking like that, it is really way off. There are so many types of projects, I do not think for a second there. until he steal your dream role in front of you ... - Haha, but it will not happen, söddu, said Joel Kinnaman, smiling so confidently that steak on the plate blushes even more.Gick ner kilo Tolva
I ask if he needs slimming down prior to the sequel of "Fast Cash". Before the first movie as JW in Jens Lapidus selling novel, Kinnaman was down twelve kilos. - On the contrary. Now the JW had been in prison for three years and has built himself up. I went up six to seven kilograms in the epilogue of the first movie and now we take in there somewhere, he says, and goes on to say that for the sake of it, it requires no actor’s talent to lose weight on order. It's just that stop eating carbohydrates, salt, sugar, fruit and tomatoes(!). Kinnaman will remain in Sweden until October-November, then waiting for a new season of "The Killing" in the U.S., plus three other projects which are in the balance. - Now I am looking for my film. My next film in the U.S., I would like to be me, as I headliner. - It does not matter if it's a great movie or short film or independent. - But I'd rather play a transsexual bank robber than a superhero, says Kinnaman and stands up, pulls hood over his head and throw in the wine. One last question only: What is it like growing up with five sisters? - You get pampered and have an extreme advantage for all women in the world. How? - I know all your tricks, says Joel and laughs. Does he think, yes. I look at the clock. The promised fifteen minutes became 34 minutes.Joel Kinnaman on ...... sister Melinda who makes a success at the Royal Dramatic Theatre:
"It is great fun. Melinda is a big part in that I was skådespelare. Visst I long to go back to the theater, to the process, to scratch together. One day I want to play "Long Day's Journey into Night" at the Royal Dramatic Theatre. But I would not be surprised if next time I stand on stage will be in New York ". ...

In Sweden they had done it in a day, for it costs money ". ... making stunts himself: "I try to do most things as long as it is not foolhardy. It's not a macho thing, with one hand, it is fun if it's a little scary, then you get an adrenaline rush, and it will be more intensity in the sequences.

Joel Kinnaman as Stephen Holder in AMC's The Killing There is a delightfully sinister quality to Stephen Holder, the new detective assigned to the homicide case at the center of AMC's crime drama, The Killing. Played by Joel Kinnaman, Holder skulks around Seattle, his skinny neck sticking out of an oversized sweatshirt. He rejects old-fashioned, rigorous police work in favor of more unorthodox information gathering. Like, say, giving a couple of soccer-playing teenage girls pot and asking them where they "party" so that they might help him figure out who killed their classmate, Rosie Larsen. In his review of The Killing for Slate, Troy Patterson rightly describes Kinnaman as a scene stealer, but I didn't realize how thoroughly he had embodied Holder—the languid movements, the general swagger—until I saw a video of Kinnaman out of character. He is almost unrecognizable.
This is a breakout performance for the half-Swedish Kinnaman (his dad's American), and there will be more opportunities to watch him in the near future. He'll appear alongside Emile Hirsch and Olivia Thirlby in an alien invasion flick called The Darkest Hour later this year. Kinnaman spoke to Slate from Cape Town, South Africa about growing up in Stockholm with his big hippie family, what it's like to be a celebrity in Sweden, and the makeup magic behind Detective Holder's deeply sketchy look.
Slate: What are you shooting in Cape Town?
Joel Kinnaman: It's a movie called Safe House, with Ryan Reynolds and Denzel Washington—it's like a CIA thriller. I'm a CIA agent. It's not a big part but it's an interesting part.
Slate: How well-established were you in Sweden when you started auditioning for American projects?
Kinnaman: We only make about 30 movies a year in Sweden. The year that I left I played the lead in seven or eight of them, and they were quite high profile. It was kind of intense with the attention there for a while, so it was a perfect time to get the hell out. I moved to the U.S. before all of those movies came out.
Slate: Is being a celebrity in Sweden like being a celebrity in America? Are you in the Swedish equivalent of Us Weekly?
Kinnaman: I guess I'm pretty well-recognized there. Swedes are a really humble and shy people in many ways, but I think it's pretty much the same as in the U.S. Little girls want to take photographs with me at lunch.
Slate: Were you attracted to The Killing because its DNA is Nordic? [The Killing is based on a Danish TV series.]
Kinnaman: That was just pure coincidence. I was really attracted to the series because of the writing, the story line and the characters. It had a really solid, quality feel to it at a first read. My intuition about the project was dead on. As an artist it's a blessing to be a part of it. A lot of the time that sort of layered feel is only in art-house projects that 25 people watch, and those 25 people like it, but it doesn't reach a larger audience. The Killing has a really great combination of qualities: Even though it's very sad and deals with mourning and grief, it's still exciting. It's about real people and it doesn't shy from the painful points of life.
Slate: Stephen Holder's a pretty squirrely character—you look so different in real life. Don't take this the wrong way, but Holder has a sort of Kevin Federline quality about him.
Kinnaman: (Laughs) K. Fed!
Slate: You really get that sketchiness dead on! It's such an American character. Since you're not from here, did you base your portrayal or anyone or anything specifically?
Kinnaman: I went to high school in Texas for one year, my senior year. My parents wanted me to get out of Stockholm because I was running with the wrong crew. They wanted me to get back to my roots. In Sweden, I went to an English school, where there was a mishmash of people from all over the world. Some were diplomatic kids with a lot of money, some were ghetto kids who came up from the suburbs, and I grew up in between. There's a community of second generation immigrants, and I became part of that because I had an American father.
Early on I knew I wanted to give Holder a feel that he grew up with a variety of people, kind of the same way I did. And he's got some issues that he's dealing with that get explained in episode eight of the series, and that was a huge part of my preparation for the character. I wanted Holder's physical movements to show that he came from a socially unpolished background. It looks like I don't have any make up on, but that's because Charles Porlier is the best makeup artist I've ever worked with. He always fixed it when it looked like I'd had too much sleep.
Slate: How did your American father end up in Sweden?
Kinnaman: When he was 20 years old he was shipped off to Vietnam. He was stationed in Bangkok. He was a young kid who had no idea about anything, and he spent a lot of time with European backpackers and started to get a lot of realizations about what this world was about. I inherited his temperament, that can be pretty hot sometimes, and he was very vocal and made a lot of enemies in the military community and in his barracks. He jumped out of the barracks at night, and hitchhiked into northern Thailand and Laos, and was on the run in Laos, living in monasteries and doing carpentry work for food. He met my sister's mom (she's not my mom) and she became pregnant. Then they found out that there were some military intelligence people looking for a tall American. Sweden was the only country that accepted military deserters at the time, and after a pit stop in Russia, he came to Sweden and has been living here ever since. We're all a big hippie family so I got five sisters and a bunch of different mothers. Not really, but my sisters' mothers are all good friends with my mother. We're a big family, 25 people.
Slate: Do you plan to stay in America indefinitely, or do you miss your big hippie family?
Kinnaman: That's the problem when you go chasing a career that is not at home. I'm going for the most interesting work, and I've been getting a lot of interesting stuff coming my way in the U.S. But I am going back to Sweden this summer to do a Swedish project for a month—a continuation of Easy Money.
Slate: In an interview I saw from when you were promoting Easy Money, you said that you have to relate to the characters that you choose. What do you relate to about Holder?
Kinnaman: He's morally complex. That's the kind of work I look for. It's really boring to do a character that is only one way, that's not how we are as people. We show a different face to everyone that we meet. I try to put that in, even if it's not in the scripts. For some reason I've been playing a lot of characters that are like actors in their reality. My character, J.W., in Easy Money, is a Talented Mr. Ripley kind of character. He's selling drugs to finance an upper-class lifestyle, and he impersonates the criminals he worked with. He's a chameleon in that sense. Holder is also an undercover guy who is sort of an impostor. I think the most significant resemblance between the characters is they all have a good heart but their actions aren't always so good. It's very human. No one likes anything perfect, with perfect white teeth and a perfect white smile.
Slate: Finally, what's the best thing you've seen on the Internet this week?
Kinnaman: My Internet game is really strong, so I want to come up with something that's worthy of my game. The funniest video I've seen recently is a rap video from Stic from Dead Presidents. It's called "Back on My Regimen." I watch it every time I want to laugh.

Sweden’s best export this TV season is actor Joel Kinnaman, co-star of the addictive AMC mystery series “The Killing.” With his hollow eyes and air of lanky menace, he slips so seamlessly into the role of Detective Stephen Holder, a former narc who lures suspects by offering them fake joints, you’d think he came off the streets.
Where Kinnaman really comes from is the Swedish Academic School of Drama, breeding ground for actors such as Stellan Skarsgard and Lena Olin. The school accepts only 10 out of 2,000 applicants. Of that select group, half are unemployed after graduation, the actor says.
Those slim chances didn’t deter Kinnaman, 31. “Those aren’t very good odds at all, but I just got really hooked on the whole process,” he says. “It started when I was applying for acting school. I had this feeling that maybe I could do this. And I didn’t have any other choices because I gave myself no out scenario. I had no plan B.”
Kinnaman, who was born Charles Joel Nordstrom, never really needed a Plan B, though. He was starring in Swedish films while still in school — a choice that so blatantly broke the rules that the student body had to lobby on the actor’s behalf so he could graduate.
He finished up in 2008, and went on to star in nine Swedish movies in 14 months. One of those was “Snabba Cash” (“Easy Money”), based on a best-selling trilogy and now the highest-grossing Swedish film ever made.
With that much high-profile work behind him so quickly, he decided it was time to give Hollywood a go. Kinnaman, whose father is American, spent a year in Texas as a high school exchange student. His English is as perfectly American as it sounds on “The Killing.”
“I had my sights on a bigger market,” he says. “I had reached a level that was secure in Sweden, so it was the right time to come over.”
Kinnaman found a manager and an agent and moved to Los Angeles. He went up for two high-profile films — “Thor" and “Mad Max 4: Fury Road” — and made a strong impression on casting agents, even though those parts went to Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hardy.
“I got pretty close on both of them. I had a feeling like maybe this isn’t going to be too hard. Then it took four months before I even got close to anything else,” he says.
By then, it was pilot season in LA. Kinnaman read lots of scripts, but the one that stood out was “The Killing.” In the series, Kinnaman plays Det. Holder with a street-smart intensity. Holder rarely plays by the rules, but he often gets the break that takes the show’s serpentine investigation to the next level.
“I wanted Holder to be someone that grew up on the street. That’s where he learned his ways,” Kinnaman says. “I wanted that to be both his strength and his weakness.”
Holder is veteran cop but a rookie homicide detective. He’s assigned to work with Det. Sarah Linden (Mireille Enos), who’s about to leave the Seattle Police Force and move to Sonoma, Calif., with her fiancé and son. Linden is wary of her new partner.
“He’s the last thing she needed,” says Kinnaman. “As the series goes along, he makes a lot of critical revelations that help the case. When he goes off the books and finds his way, he’s the one that’s really moving the case forward.”
“The Killing” opened on April 3 to nearly 5 million cumulative viewers, the cable net’s second-highest original premiere. The show is not yet renewed for season two, says an AMC spokesperson, but a renewal is expected.
Until then, Kinnaman, who is single, is keeping busy, with two major features in the works. He plays the villain in “The Darkest Hour,” also starring Emile Hirsch and Max Minghella. He’s currently on location in Cape Town, South Africa, shooting “Safe House” with Denzel Washington, Vera Farmiga and Ryan Reynolds.
