Another film which would have suited better on TV
4 October 2010 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

I must admit I'm quite impressed about the cinema being almost full on the third day of showing this Varg Veum-film. It's the third I've seen on cinema, but I know there's been quite a few also on DVD, without me watching them.

But I think the script for this movie was too far fetched. Maybe it worked better in the Gunnar Staalesen-book. Quite probably. Actually i find it surprising to say that Lene Nystrøm made the best out of her role, as dis of course Bjørn Floberg as policeman Hamre.

Tragic, too tragic, the story goes on just as the ones I seen before. I can't help it being bored. Too theatrical, and I don't think the pedophilia in this film gives the story enough of a serious treatment. we simply don't believe in it This will be the last Varg Veum film I see, at least in the cinema.
