Somewhere in the Norwegian fjords: Morten (Frode Winther) and his wife Nina (Maria Bock) are about to close up their hotel for off-season when Andrea (Siren Jørgensen) shows up on their doorstep, claiming to be a journalist from a well-known travel journal who wants to do a feature on their hotel. Morten and Nina are both a little surprised about this unannounced visitor, but are of course happy about the publicity this might bring, and since they don't have much to do during this time of year, a visitor who might help them look after their baby is actually a good thing. Plus, Andrea proves to be very easy-going and likeable ...

Thing is, things are not as harmless as they seem, as Andrea has an ulterior motive to pay Morten a visit as they've got some unfinished business from the past, and while he doesn't seem to recognize her, she knows all his weaknesses and plays the people closest to him against him, often without them knowing. But while Nina's motives might be noble - at least sort of -, she frequently goes too far and doesn't seem to mind the people she might hurt as colateral damage, just to get her revenge ...

 

A very strong Scandinavian revenge thriller that follows the "revenge is best served cold"-route and thus doesn't present things head on but lets them develop pretty much through the entirety of the movie, relying on tension and suspense, which are expertly handled, rather than spectacle, even using quiet scenes to fire things up. And add to that a very strong cast and of course the wonderful Norvegian landscapes, and you've got a pretty powerful film!
