Norwegian Oscar Svendsen (Hellum) explains to the police how he became sole survivor of a shoot-out in a Swedish roadhouse/strip-cub. A foreman in a factory staffed by ex-offenders, Oscar partnered with three former crooks in a football pool which won a large sum of money — prompting a chain of cash-snatches and murders.
Casually gruesome and corpse-littered, it’s a shaggy dog story with an almost buried emotional core about friendship, betrayal, temporary alliance and craftiness.
