Trond Espen Seim resolves a case of two murders
2 February 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Woman in the Fridge" (2008) is a solid detective movie in the Norwegian series of Varg Veum mysteries. Fans of this genre can't go wrong with this one. As an American, it was fun to see the Norwegian settings. My copy ran 105 minutes, not the video 87 minutes that IMDb mentions.

There's no need to reveal too much plot because this kind of story relies on the unknowns and surprises faced by the private eye and by us viewers. Seim goes about his work in a persistent way. He doesn't wield firearms or beat up on anyone. He doesn't threaten or strong-arm people. He quite often knows how to listen and draw people out, so as to obtain information.

The case involves the hunt for a missing and valuable oil/gas process on a disk. It has been stolen from a company and the backups wiped clean. Seim is supposed to find the genius who originated the process and apparently stole it so that he could get his due from the company. When Seim goes to the man's apartment, he finds a woman's torso in the refrigerator. Subsequently, another death occurs that touches him personally. We are very sure that he's not going to let go of this case until he finds out what's going on. There is one foot chase that was paced and filmed beautifully.

The production values are good. The color of the film is on the muddy or bluish side, but that might be simply the print I saw. The screenplay is just about right, without too much talk, with pauses to let the emotional reactions sink in for the characters and us, and showing a realistic acquisition of information by Seim as Veum.

All-around good entertainment.
