Re: New Swedish documentary tries to find Vinnie

Just flicking through the 'documentrary' without even understanding Swedish, you can tell there's no substance there at all.

And that female voice coming through the phone who gives an address, then tells them "you're looking for a woman" sounds scripted by an actor to me.
