In Order of Disappearance: Out this week


In cinemas from Friday is Hans Petter Moland’s In Order of Disappearance. This thriller that’s billed as a rollicking, gory and funny delve into Norway’s dark underbelly of society stars Nordic icon Stellan Skarsgård as an anti-hero out for revenge.

Nils (Skarsgård) is a snow-plough driver who discovers that his son has died of a suspected drugs overdose. However, he knows his son isn’t a junkie and his suspicions of foul play are confirmed when he tracks down, and brutally kills, two gang members who he deems responsible for his sons demise. Soon Nils is swept up in a turf war between a local gang and a group of Serbians and as you can imagine, things don’t go smoothly from there.

With a pitch-black sense of humour and a snowballing body count, director Hans Petter Molan depiction of Nils vigilante streak is sure to appeal to fans of Headhunters (2012) and The Hunters (1996) when it arrives in cinemas on Friday.
