I avoided this film thinking it would be scary Scandinavian noir, but
14 May 2017 | by missustoadSee all my reviews

Finally watched it last night. Instead, I got a film that quickly grew on me as the body count mounted (hence the Englsh title). An earlier reviewer said it was like Fargo, but I would add a touch of an absurd Kill Bill body count. At the end of the film I was laughing out loud. A great dark comedy.
