In Order of Disappearance
Upstanding community leader Nils has just won an award for "Citizen of the Year" when he learns the news that his son has died of a heroin overdose. Suspecting foul play, Nils begins to investigate, and soon finds himself at the center of an escalating underworld gang war between Serbian drug dealers and a sociopathic criminal mastermind known only as “The Count.”
I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want. If you're looking for cocaine, I can tell you I don't have drugs. But what I do have are a very particular set of snow removal vehicles; Snow removal vehicles I have acquired over a very long career. Snow removal vehicles that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you'd let my son go, that would've been the end of it. I wouldn't look for you, I wouldn't pursue you. But since you didn't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will plow you.
Hans Petter Moland's film is a story about fathers and sons, parental responsibility and cold hearted, blood soaked revenge. Most people will see similarities with Headhunters or the quirky characters that populate the Coen's world although the icy Scandinavian humour, led by Stellan Skarsgaard, sets a tone all of its own.
Nils Dickman hails from Sweden but lives in Norway, recently crowned Citizen of The Year in his small town. Life as a respected family man is turned upside down when his son is murdered, believed to be the victim of a drug overdose. Nils refuses to accept the coroners report and heads off to track down the men he believes to be responsible; cue a pile of dead bodies…
Stellan Skarsgaard punches a lot of people on his way to nail a bad guy who is a cross between Richard E Grant and Richey from Bottom (only norwegian).
Stellan Skarsgård entra directo al número 1 del ranking "Charles Bronson del Siglo XXI". In order of disappearance combina violencia y humor negro de manera magistral, me ha dejado con ganas de mas material del duo HP Moland/S Skarsgård.
Kraftidioten, or In Order of Disappearance which it is called in English, is like an Norwegian crossover between the Coen brothers and Quentin Tarantino, just not as good. I felt like the movie was trying a bit too hard, it was trying to be tougher than it actually was. I know it's not to be taken completely serious, but I still feel like it could have done better with another cast, some of the actors felt very misscasted. The movie is still good entertainment, there's aspects that are really good, but still I can't seem to like it as much as everyone else seems to have.
The movie is about Nils, a Swedish immigrant that just has been awarded for…
This Norwegian/Swedish/Danish black-comedy revenge film is directed by Hans Petter Moland and starring Stellan Skarsgård and Pål Sverre Valheim Hagen (Kon-Tiki 2012). It was premiered at 64th Berlin International Film Festival. The spoken-language is English, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and Serbian.
A desperate snow-plough driver Nils (Stellan) must settle score with the drug-lord (Sverre) for murdering his only adult son.
Film's got excellent music-score and locations. Filled with average but good performance, this Norwegian movie ensures audience to lay their trust in the Scandinavian film-industry. Give it a try and you won't be disappointed (except its duration).
In Order of Disappearance (2014) -
If you're looking for quality films out of Norway in the late 2000s, you need not look further than this movie. Starring Stellan Skaarsgard in the lead role, it's a story about a father losing his son, taking revenge, and conflicts between rival gangs. Not being familiar with the writer, director, or anyone in this Norwegian production is a treat if you're unfamiliar. Great watch. Definitely worth your time 8/10
Greven's car is a Fisker Karma, which is a Finnish electrical, rear-wheeled drive electrical car. Design by Henrik Fisker (Denmark), build by Valmet in Finland.
This is director Hans Petter Moland's fourth collaboration with Stellan Skarsgård.
A lot of pleasurable charms to admire here. The movie's insistence on modestly getting to work, for starters. Which is all the more impressive considering how so many crime movies today (especially, it seems, international ones, made by young directors looking to get their Hollywood calling card out there) suffer from a deadening glut of flashiness, smug posing, and unnecessary stylistic tics. Moland's smart and experienced enough to just tell a lean, propulsive, tightly built piece of pure genre pleasure. But the movie's biggest and most overt pleasure is surely the distinctively Nordic sensibility (droll, chilly, smiling even though it's ever-snowing) brought to this widely tread Coen-inspired terrain. One of the better character-who-shouldn't-be-in-crime-movie-but-caught-in-one-far-bigger-than-they-could-have-anticipated-or-likely-handle genre exercises in a while.
This film has such a subtle hilarity to it that is quite admirable honestly. Interested to see how that carries over to the American version.
It doesn't have the staying power of A SOMEWHAT GENTLE MAN, but Moland's collaborations with Skarsgard are immensely enjoyable. IN ORDER loses steam after the halfway mark, revitalizing itself in its finale, with a nicely poetic final moment. The director's dry, devilish approach to otherwise chilly noir tales is unique and I want more of them. Please.
In Order of Disappearance is meant to be a tongue-in-cheek revenge thriller about Stellan Skarsgard’s Nils getting Charles Bronson-style revenge on the mobsters who murdered his son. The film undercuts revenge tropes and plays to the ludicrous improbability of individuals like Nils actually accomplishing any sort of revenge. The first 20 minutes are fun and droll in that uniquely-Scandinavian way. However, while the narrative should focus on Nils, Pål Sverre Hagen’s vegan gangster, Greven, hijacks it and drives it off a cliff. Greven is so poorly conceived and so foppishly performed that what should be a satirical character becomes an unfunny nuisance that tanks the film.

They basically threw Taken, Run All Night, and A Walk Among the Tombstones in a blender and set it in Norway. There was never any chance I wouldn't love this.
The only thing I may love more is the American remake they're doing LITERALLY STARRING LIAM NEESON. Bless you movie gods.
Nordic Revenge Noir with an unexpected offbeat edge. Perfect entertainment. Expect Hollywood to co-opt this one (starring Liam Neeson, say) but no-one can touch Stellan Skarsgård.
The honorable citizen Nils ploughs snow in the wild winter mountains of Norway, when his son is mistakenly murdered, Nils takes action, which ignites a war between the vegan gangster "the Count" and the Serbian mafia boss Papa.
A bit TV esque at times, but has enough good moments to give it a light recommend.
Even the plot is quite simple, the beautiful scenarios and itsvast snowy setting makes it different from a regular revenge drama.Though most of us can't get the dark,subtle humour in the dialogues as we don't know the language, Definitely a watchable revenge drama.
