Storyline

Escaped mental patient, Erkki, is the prime suspect in the brutal murder of an old widow. Only Sara Rask, Erkki's therapist, believes Erkki to be innocent. While she cooperates with detective Karsten Skov to find her patient, Erkki is at the wrong place at the wrong time, being taken hostage by bank robber Morgan. But after completing the perfect getaway, Morgan gets more than he bargained for when Erkki refuses to be set free. Written by Signy

Well-made Thriller Keeps Audience Guessing
21 January 2005 | by NorthFacelessSee all my reviews

This is a good Norwegian movie I recommend more people to see. It's a pretty good thriller, and it kept me guessing until the very end. Kristoffer Joner makes a very believable neurotic mental patient(as usual). The Danish Lars Bom also does a good job of playing the cop on the edge. Stig Henrik does a decent job, cussing like only a northern Norwegian can. Aksel Hennie on the other hand does not come across like he should in scenes where he should be angry or sad. He always has that grin on his face, just like in Buddy. He has potential though. The pacing of the movie is very well done, very well shot by the cameraman too. Thumbs up!
