Storyline

A chance meeting with his former classmates in the rock-band Camp, offers complications for Veum. The problems get really big when he resumes contact with his former flame Rebecca - now the wife of Varg's buddy Jakob, the band's front-figure. A series of murders are being committed in the city, where the bizarre MO is young girls hanged and wearing white dresses. Varg is not the only one who gets too much involved in the case.

A dark, but not that tense story
4 November 2016 | by peefynSee all my reviews

This is the first movie I have seen in this series, and I was not sure what to expect. I was happy that they did not shy away from going into dark stories, but despite some of the things that you see on screen, it never really gets that tense. I thought that the plot was clever enough, and except some quite lazy reveals, the movie moved along nicely.

The subplot about Veum and his old friend, and the relationship between the two, was not that interesting. It's important for the story that there is established something there, but except the one scene where the friend asks Veum if he wants to go drink a beer, there weren't really many good moments between them.

As this is a movie well into the series, you might be expected to know the Veum character well enough so that the movie doesn't need to spend much time on it. This works okay, but he's quite bland.
