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.

In the end credits the names of all actors appear at the same time, in grey letters on black background, scattered across the entire screen. In order of their disappearance (their last appearance in the film) the names are highlighted in white, then fade away entirely. See more »
Well first of all let me say that I certainly did enjoy this movie. What I don't understand is the fact that some people consider it as a funny crime comedy. Maybe it's because I don't understand the language that I missed some subtle humor or so, I don't know, but the fact is that I for sure didn't laugh once with this movie. The story might not be very original but the actors all did a great job so I can't complain about that. Stellan Skarsgård showed us again that he is a good actor. The story is just another normal citizen searching for revenge after the death of his kid. All in all I thought it was well played and filmed with nice nature shots as well.
