Jackpot on Jan 10th

 
 Certificate 15 - directed by Magnus Martens.   Subtitles
 
An enjoyable Scandinavian treat from the pen of Jo Nesbo recalls Fargo and The Usual Suspects.
Terrified and bloody, Oscar Svendsen awakes clenched to a shotgun in a strip joint.  Around him 8 dead men and police aiming at him.  To Oscar it is clear that he is innocent.   It all started when 4 chaps won £1.7 million on the pools....  Casually gruesome and corpse littered, it is a shaggy dog story with an almost buried emotional core about friendship, betrayal, temporary alliances and craftiness.
 
A black farce rather than a thriller, the film requires close attention and even a second viewing with multiple versions of what might have happened.
