A good and fun movie. Recommended :)
5 May 2004 | by (Sandnes, Norway) – See all my reviews

After i saw this movie i immediately logged on to imdb.com to comment on it. But i couldn't find it. So i had to put in the info myself and now here it is :) (this is a proud moment) hehe. This movie features two of my favorite Norwegian actors, Kristoffer Joner and Aksel Hennie. This is a typical thriller in which there is committed a murder and you don't know who's responsible. I haven't seen a Norwegian movie like this before so i was positively surprised when the end credits came. Kristoffer Joner is of course extremely good as the mentally ill Erkki who escapes from a mental institution. I wont tell anymore else for fear of giving something away. I rate this movie 8/10
