The backdrop was nice...
4 June 2013 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Scandinavian crime films are usually pretty okay. This one wasn't. The main character irritated me with his attitude as if he owned the half of Norway, his supposed omnniscience, stride and what not. The story was very simple and the way it 'evolved' was just too easy. The bad guys are given away pretty early on and they hardly contribute to any suspense or depth. It is all just very flat and uninteresting.

The only big plus is Norway itself and its settings, which are always good - or so it turns out - for a nice, grim atmosphere. And that's about all I could make of it, my rating might even be a little too high, all things considered. If this just part one the Varg Veum series, I best leave the rest of it alone, methinks...
