Varg Veum
18 January 2018 | by magda_butraSee all my reviews

We don't know much about Varg's private life. Probably he was married, but now he lives alone, he doesn't go out and doesn't meet his friends. The only mammal elements in his life are Hamre, Isachsen and Anna. In "Fallen Angels" his old friends showed up. At the airport Varg bumps into Rebecca (Pia Tjelta) and Jakob (Per Kjerstad), with whom he broke off contacts before they got married. Back then they were like a pack and even had a band. The band still exists and Jakob is its leader. He asks Varg to follow Rebecca and check if she is having an affair. Although Varg stays away from marital issues, this time he breaks this rule. His investigation is linked to a serial killer. His victims are drugged, dressed into white dresses and hanged.

I can complement the plot, I won't complain about Varg's private life and for the first time I feel sympathy towards Hamre.
