Storyline

After his usual stay behind bars, Egon has another cunning plan involving millions. They rob over 4 million from a money transport. The gang keeps a low profile and hide the money. But it's stolen by "Kongen" and "Knægten", who immediately start living it up - in the penthouse suite at the Sheraton. The suitcase with the money changes hands several times, before Kongen's daughter takes of with all the money. Written by bobrandt

Excellent movie with a great sense of humour
19 January 2002 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Well made Danish comedy with an ironic and sarcastic twist of social realism. The movies in this series are probably the best danish comedies ever made, they are not annoying as several of the older Danish comedies and the humour is intelligent and peculiar.

In my opinion one of the best Olsenbanden movies made. As the other earlier Olsenbanden movies, this one has supreme acting from Sprogøe, Grundwald, Bundgaard and Walther. On top of this comes what I believe is Arthur Jensens best part ever as the petty-thief Kongen, with high ambitions and a snobbish attitude. I never liked Poul Reichardt much and I don´t find him convincing in this movie either playing the part as Knaegten, the partner of Kongen.

What makes this Olsenbanden movie exceptional is the brilliant script. The fact that Egon Olsen (Sprogoee) has found a worthy advisory in Kongen carries this movie through very well - much better than some of the later movies in the series.

So 8/10 from me for some good entertainment
