Hamilton is a 1998 Swedish action film directed by Harald Zwart, starring Peter Stormare, Mark Hamill and Lena Olin. The film was edited with additional scenes into a 3 hour long TV-series in 2001. The 1998 single "No Man's Land" by Ardis was included in the soundtrack to this film.
Swedish military intelligence officers Carl Hamilton (Peter Stormare) and Åke Stålhandske (Mats Långbacka) are ordered to eliminate a band of Russian smugglers on the Russian tundra. The smugglers possess a nuclear missile, a 1.5 megaton SS-20, "enough to turn Paris, Washington or New York to ashes". What they do not know is that the smugglers they have intercepted were only a decoy, while the real missile was shipped to Libya. Mark Hamill plays Mike Hawkins, the film's antagonist, an American former CIA officer working in Murmansk.
