From the very first minute I thought: yes, this is my part! Really good shoots at the beginning, it smelled a bit like James Bond with Pierce Brosnan. Varg went for skiing with his old pal Even Nymark (Jon Øigarden). Even is an ex soldier, now working as a guard in the Armakon company, producing weapons. During Even's shift there is an explosion, which caused the death of most board members. Even is pointed out as a causer of the explosion. Varg checks out his flat and begins the investigation on his own. He finds some suspiciously looking papers and Even's partner, Elise (Ane Dahl Torp). In the mean time he ends up in Budapest, where my favourite scene with Hamre takes place.
The turning point of that movie took the some charm of the whole production. Normally this was the moment when I was doing the facepalm and saying "yes, of course!". This time I was suspecting one solution and still hoping that it won't happen. In the end, the movie has really good first part and decent scenes with Hamre, nothing more.
