In order to enhance the authenticity of the movie, director Erik Skjoldbjærg
casted only amateurs, including Morten Håland
, who portrays his own twin brother, police officer Erik Håland. The only exception was the professional actor Frode Winther
, whose physical resemblance to the robber Kjell Alrich Schumann made him an obvious choice for the role. See more
