Varg Veum indicates that the story was printed in the newspaper Bergens Tidene (by slamming the newspaper on the table, when he visits the reporter), when it actually was printed in the newspaper Bergens Avisen. This is clearly visible by the blue border on the front page of Bergens Tidende. See more »
If you have happened to have read the rather good book "Begravde hunder biter ikke" by Gunnar Staalesen, upon which this movie is SUPPOSED to be based, do not expect to find any similarities with this movie. The movie is not based on the book at all, and has a completely different storyline. How they can even claim that this movie is even in the smallest sense imaginable based on the book is beyond me. The story in the movie is obviously inspired(but not based on) the real-life Obiora-incident, and attempts to use this incidents to score cheap points against a RL norwegian political party - FrP. The storyline told is painfully predictable - nothing like what you'd expect from a Varg Veum story - and the acting is less than stellar. All in all, I'd say this movie is an insult to the book from which it borrows its name.
