Toon shader: 0.0 smoothness is still smooth - How to use it?

I wish to create some toon shader to get a minimalistic 2D look with barely some shading. My problem is that the shadow (or what is it) is too smooth even if I set smooth to 0. How to get this right?
Thanks in advance.

EDIT: I found a decent, though not toon shader solution online. here is the link:
