Scandinavia has long proven to be fertile ground for brooding thrillers across all types of media – be that books, movies or television. Perhaps it’s the sparse population and ensuing isolation that allows authors and creative thinkers to dream up dark scenarios for projects, but whatever the case, it’s served up the likes of Headhunters and Stieg Larsson’s beloved Millennium series – the same one the features The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo – to name but a few.
When it comes to In Order Of Disappearance, though, Hans Petter Moland’s action flick takes the road less travelled, gunning down the route of black comedy as opposed to a chilling murder mystery. Stellan Skarsgård, Bruno Ganz, Pål Sverre Hagen, Jakob Oftebro, and Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju have all booked their place in Moland’s bloody romp, and below you’ll find an exclusive poster that we’re happy to be debuting, which showcases Stellan Skarsgård taking aim.
Set to release late next month, the official synopsis for In Order of Disappearance reads as so:
Introverted and hard-working snowplow driver Nils has just been named “Citizen of the Year,” when he receives news that his son has died of a heroin overdose. Disbelieving the official report, Nils soon uncovers evidence of the young man’s murder – a victim in a turf war between the local crime boss, known as “The Count”, and his Serbian rivals. Armed with heavy machinery and a good dose of beginner’s luck, Nils embarks upon a quest for revenge that soon escalates into a full-blown underworld gang war, with the body count spiralling ever higher and higher.
Look for In Order of Disappearance to open in theaters on August 26.
