After contact with Nordisk Film respond Anders Nilsson (creative producer) and Joakim Hansson (producer) in an email that the similarity is about a tragic coincidence. Story pipeline, including the character Luna was created back in 2008.
“The scene in the film is in its design made for some real unsuccessful attacks, and the only similarity with what happened now in Gothenburg is the name of the girl. What is enormously tragic. But the similarity stops with the name, “writes Anders Nilsson and Joakim Hansson.
Anders Nilsson adds that the filmmakers reacted to the similarities between the scene in the movie and the event in reality even before people started to point it out to them .
