A very cleverly put together film that requires a lot of concentration. There are many twists in the plot. The cast gave it everything and acted brilliantly. A very enjoyable and entertaining film. Based on the bestselling book by Scandinavian Jo Nesbo. It is rumored that an English language remake is on the cards with Mark Wahlberg. This film has been sold to over 50 countries and this means it is a record for any Norwegian film.
