THE LEFT WING GANG is a crime story about a notorious gang of criminals and the policeman who went for broke to catch them. The gang were radical left-wing activists. In 1989, seven of them were charged of being behind a series of the most professional robberies in the history of Denmark. The many millions stolen in the gang's activities were transferred to the terror organization PFLP with the aim of supporting anti-Israeli Palestinians. The assumed leader of the gang, Jan Weimann, never revealed his double life to his wife or friends, and police superintendent Jørn Moos, who was in charge of the investigation, staked his career to catch the gang members.
