The script is based mainly on interviews with the persons involved in the original 2004 robbery, including a number of the convicted robbers. In order to interview the latter, screenwriter Christopher Grøndahl
had to visit almost all larger prisons in Norway, as the convicted robbers were being held in separate institutions and constantly moved about for security reasons. See more
