Terribly Happy 2008 ★★★

Pleasantly off-kilter noir set in a small town in the dour, murky Denmark countryside where a corpse-filled bog seems to be the closest thing to a tourist attraction. Despite hitting some overly familiar notes - the movie is essentially a jokeless version of Hot Fuzz with a pinch of Blood Simple - its setting is so beautifully miserable and its tone so odd that it manages to muster up just enough charm to coast through the more predictable elements.
