Top Drawer Nordic Thriller
8 April 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Man , I don't know if it goes back to the Saga's and the stories of old but the Nordic countries sure know how to entertain. I saw " Headhunters" in the cinema today and was totally blown away by it, so much so that I would venture to say its the best movie I've seen this year. So I looked up the director and saw that he did this one too.This guy is one to watch and thats not maybe. Set in Bergen, this movie thoroughly kept me entertained and guessing to the final scenes. I don't want to go into the movie as such as I could spoil it for everyone but suffice to say you will not be wasting your time checking this out..... .... I am the Ghost of Leif Ericson and I bid you, god natt
