Storyline

Varg Veum is summoned by the chief of police Hamre to a hostage drama on a farm outside Bergen. A married couple have been brutally murdered, and all evidence points to their foster son, 16 year old Jan Egil. The kid refuses to talk to anyone else than to Veum, who knows him since childhood. He swears he had not killed his foster parents. But there is a couple social workers at the welfare home for stray kids, where Egil had landed when he was 1 year old. They got deeply touched by the drama as defenders of the young population of the social home, for it's been plagued by a new drogue called GHB (Hydroxybutyric acid) and several kids had died on it. When Egil declares himself guilty of the murder, Hamre, the chief of police, asks Veum to get his hands out of a solved case. But Veum discovers that Egil is been forced by the knowledge a disturbing reality concerning his foster father and this drug. Written by Bob Buckingham

Hope for a better movie

One of many small Norwegian islands. The postman is delivering packages. At one place he noticed door wide opened. As he knew the tenants, he came up to check the house. Inside he found two dead bodies. When he was moving back to the car, he was spotted by a boy, living in that house, holding a rifle. The postman managed to run away and notify the police. The boy, Jan Egil (Sturla Alvsvåg) told Hamre, that he will negotiate only with Varg Veum, otherwise he will kill his hostage, friend from school Silje (Dagny Backer Johnsen). Varg took care of young Jan Egil, when as a social worker decided to take the boy from his addicted to narcotics mother. Now, when boy is almost a man, in the whole investigation former Varg's co-workers are involved - Cecilie (Line Verndal) and Hans (Vegar Hoel).

Maybe in a general opinion this piece does not have the most sophisticated riddle, but it the nicest to watch (if you skip those few scenes, when Varg is alpha male). And Hamre is pretty friendly. And many bad people dies, which is usually a benefit.
