Egon Olsen and his gang is about to commit their biggest heist - stealing 6 millions from an under cover operation at a freight company, which the police also follows closely. The safe is both guarded by alarm and the company gorillas.
With this show Norwegian comedy-writer Tore Ryen certainly showed that he knew what his countrymen needed on tv in the 90's, and by the standards of this show the answer was... crap!
This has to be the worst sit-com in the history of all sit-com's. OK, that's maybe pulling it a bit far but the quality and the stupidity of this show was at times mind-blowing (that is, unless you were 10 years old at the time). Had it not been for the fact that it had some great comedy actors (in desperate need of becoming a tv-star?) the hollow writing of Tore Ryen would have shown off more clearly. To top it all off he has no business directing, yet he had the nerve to do so on a number of occasions. The proof of the latter showed in his later sit-com "Holms" where he got his stepdaughter to co-star and the show is like an ABC of how NOT to direct child "actors".
Man, gee wiz, give this man a ticket to Sweden!
