As with a lot of other Nordic thrillers, there is a lot of snow about. Take that, and add the feeling of Fargo and you have a good start.
That’s where the, classic, Nordic thriller ends. The trailer gives an interesting take on what the film will be.
With a quiet hero whose outlook on life changes after the murder of his son. He decides to take on the local crime boss and his Serbian rivals. This he does when he discovers he has a talent for revenge. Something that nobody would believe he could possess before the death of his son.
Introverted and hard-working snow plow driver Nils has just been named citizen of the year, when he receives news that his son has died of a heroin overdose.
Disbelieving the official report, Nils soon uncovers evidence of the young man’s murder—a victim in a turf war between the local crime boss, known as “The Count”, and his Serbian rivals. Armed with heavy machinery and a good dose of beginner’s luck, Nils embarks upon a quest for revenge that soon escalates into a full-blown underworld gang war, with the body count spiralling ever higher and higher.
