Varg Veum - Kvinnen i kjøleskapet (2008)
Varg Veum - Falne engler
Another well-paced and cleverly constructed installment in the Norwegian detective series about Varg Veum. This time he has to deal with half a woman's body in a refrigerator and a suspicious disappearance of a brilliant process engineer in the lucrative oil business. Trond Espen Seim propels the plot forward with unassuming relentlessness and Bjørn Floberg is providing witty and implicit support by his side. Alexander Eik's film is notable for a strong and emotive performance from Christian Rubeck and real human destinies in the midst of the traditional crime denouement, but unfortunately there is also the odd overdone plot twist and a somewhat overly recognisable narrative development. With that said, there is no doubt that director Eik handles it all elegantly. And he also shoots the most scenic Veum so far.
Hamre (Floberg): "Også syns jeg du skal vanne plantene dine, Veum, ellers så tørker dere ut begge to."
