Persbrandt film gets Oscar nod

There was no Academy awards nomination today for "Simple Simon" but Sweden has at least one representative involved in the Best Foreign film category at next month's Oscar ceremony in Hollywood.

The Danish film "In a better world" (Hämnden) stars Swede Mikael Persbrandt in the lead role in a story about the lives of two Danish families and their friendship.

Persbrandt is tipped as the next Swede to take Hollywood by storm.
