There was probably a freshness to this film for Norwegian audiences at the time and there is a car chase that was probably exciting. The music was also addictive and the actors clearly had fun which is contagious to the viewer watching. A good old "cops and robbers" movie and remake of a Danish franchise filled with charm.
