Stranger Says:

A small Norwegian town is plagued by a series of mysterious fires. In possibly related news, the fire chief’s teenage son (Trond Hjort Nilssen) sure seems to know exactly where to go whenever the sirens start ringing. Director Erik Skjoldbjaerg (the original Insomnia) dispenses with the whodunit quickly, in favor of steadily worming his way deeper into the head of the discomfitingly serene central character. The film hits the creepy spot early and often, with a tangible sense of the growing toll on the community and some disturbingly gorgeous flames.
