Storyline

Nils ploughs snow in the wild winter mountains of Norway, and is recently awarded a Citizen of the Year Award. When his son is murdered for something he did not do, Nils wants revenge. And justice. His actions ignite a war between the vegan gangster "the Count" and the Serbian mafia boss "Papa". Winning a blood feud isn't easy, especially not in a welfare state. But Nils has something going for him: Heavy machinery and beginners luck. Written by Paradox/Anonymous

Very funny Norwegian crime-comedy
28 June 2014 | by Red-BarracudaSee all my reviews

In Order of Disappearance tells the story of a Swedish snowplowman from a remote part of Norway who becomes a vigilante after his son is murdered by gangsters. But recounting the story wouldn't really give much of an indication of why this one is so impressive. The narrative is definitely good but it's the way it's told that makes this one a winner. The chief reason is probably its humour. The script is full of funny dialogue, with characters often going off on humorous tangents about, for example, why only cold countries have a welfare state or how nice Norwegian prisons are. The script is full of humour that never feels forced and genuinely amuses. It works so well because the actors on hand to deliver the lines are so very good. The standout for me was Pål Sverre Hagen, who plays the vegan crime boss The Count, who puts in a thoroughly hilarious performance.

As the title suggests the film documents the order in which characters disappear, i.e. are murdered. The way in which it does so is to display their names on white text on a black backdrop with an accompanying symbol of their religious group; to this effect we have the Protestant crosses of the dead Norwegians, the Catholic crosses of the Serbians and the Star of David for the one Jewish victim. It's an unusual, original idea that is both funny and kind of poignant at the same time. It goes against the grain of most crime films that for sure. The story has the vigilante killing his way up the crime chain in his pursuit of revenge over his son, while at the same time two rival gangs – Norwegians and Serbians – fight amongst each other on account of a confusion caused by the vigilante's actions. This allows for lots of varied events, interesting characters and much hilarity. In Order of Disappearance is a very solidly recommended crime-comedy, with lots of good things about it. It's yet another recent example of the Scandinavians having a bit of a knack in making refreshingly different crime films.
