Varg Veum - Din til døden (2008)
Erik Richter Strand's second film in the Varg Veum series was released less than two months after its predecessor, Tornerose. This third film in the series is also the best, even if it may be inferior to its two older brothers in tenseness and suspense. In Din til døden, Veum finds himself in the midst of a divorce with ramifications outside of the ordinary, ranging from car theft, murder, jealousy and robbery. The film is brilliantly set off, with some very skillful plot twists early on (including a fine scene inside a garage and an excellent segment with Seim, Mestad, Bergmann and Lullau). There is a lot more style and flair in the conduction of Din til døden than in the two prior films, and Richter Strand shows a delicate blend of tones throughout the film's different parts. Pleasing is also the increasingly tightknit and wonderfully acted relationship between Veum and Hamre. Seim and Floberg are absolutely magnetic together, and the subdued ending does wonders to an otherwise somewhat predictable final clear-up.
