Racial tension is running high in Bergen after a young black asylum seeker dies at the hands of the police. Shortly afterwards, a right-wing politician is targeted by a gunman at a public rally, and his wife is fatally wounded. The Party is about to hold a leadership election. One of the candidates, Marit Holm, comes to Varg Veum, insisting she is being stalked. Varg is drawn into a web of conspiracy and betrayal at the heart of the political establishment, in which spin doctors and political players will do anything to achieve their ends.
Varg Veum indicates that the story was printed in the newspaper Bergens Tidene (by slamming the newspaper on the table, when he visits the reporter), when it actually was printed in the newspaper Bergens Avisen. This is clearly visible by the blue border on the front page of Bergens Tidende. See more »
Bodyguards of one of the Bergen's clubs went roughly on one of the guys, waiting in line to get inside. After their intervention the guy, who was not a typical Norwegian beauty, died. One of the top politicians of a conservative party, Einar Bergene (Kyrre Haugen Sydness) did not condemn the actions of the bodyguards. This opened up a huge discussion in media and in the party itself - should they apply more restrict anti immigrant policy? Einar is preparing himself for the upcoming elections for the position of the party leader. His opponent is Marit Haug (Siv Klynderud), much more toned in her opinions. Marit goes to Varg for help - she is afraid that somebody wants to kill her.
After the good fifth movie this piece was a little disappointment. The characters are unidimensional and boring, full of cliches and schemes. Everything that was possible was put into the screenplay and the riddle itself remained in the shadows. In the first part of the movie some small turning points were unexpected, but the closer you get to the end, the less tension there was.
