Varg Veum - Begravde hunder

Synopsis: Racial tension is running high in Bergen after a young black asylum seeker dies at the hands of the police. Shortly afterwards, a right-wing politician is targeted by a gunman at a public rally, and his wife is fatally wounded. The Party is about to hold a leadership election. One of the candidates, Marit Holm, comes to Varg Veum, insisting she is being stalked. Varg is drawn into a web of conspiracy and betrayal at the heart of the political establishment, in which spin doctors and political players will do anything to achieve their ends.

Now the Adu case. The charges against

the police officers have been dropped.

18 year old Mikael Adu died

after his arrest in Bergen last August.

Police methods were criticized.

Party leadership candidate

Einar Bergene sees this as

a victory for law and order.

This has been very tough

on the three officers.

They were pre-condemned, accused...

This inquiry shows they only

performed their job well.

An 18 year old died.

Is that to 'a job well done'?

We have to realise society has changed.

The police often has to face

violent individuals.

Einar Bergene's comments

since the case was dropped

meet vivid criticism.

Last night over 3000 people took part

in protest marches in Oslo and Bergen.

In Bergen the march developed

into violent riots.

Around hundred arrests were made.

Marit Haug, was this

a 'job well done'?

No, it wasn't.

Bergene is not representative

for our politics.

Will this make you win?

Let's hope so!


A free adaptation

of Gunnar Staalesen's novel

Deputy party leader Einar Bergene

hails Adu's arrest by the police

as 'a job well done'.

Mikael Adu died during the arrest.

Einar Bergene's remarks have

stirred up a storm of protest.

Party leader Kristian Fredriksen and

the second deputy leader, Marit Haug,

have not made

any comments so far.

Party leader

Kristian Fredriksen's dilemma is

that he cannot reject Einar Bergene

without alienating

an important part of his electorate.

At the same time this type of remark

is totally incompatible with

the party's wish to enter government

after next year's general election.

And Marit Haug,

what are her chances?

- Varg Veum?

- Yes?

I'm Marit Haug.

I can see that.

As the party is electing a new leader,

she's an obvious choice.

- You're getting a lot of attention.

- Not for our policies, I'm afraid.

A boy is strangled

and your colleague calls it 'well done'.

Your policies seem quiet clear.

I didn't come to discuss politics.


Do you need help?

I have... for some time

been pursued by someone.

What makes you think that?

I just know.

I can't be more specific.

As a public figure it is perhaps normal?

A few months ago someone

broke into my flat in Oslo.

- Did you report it?

- Yeah.

I don't think they will do much.

The police has "limited resources".

I'm sorry, but... I'm not a body guard.

I guess I'm not from

the right political camp.

If you have anything specific,

I suggest you go to police.

In case you should change your mind.

Norwegian People's Party,

Marit Haug.


- Anything else?

- I'll have a coffee.

- To go.

- Make it two. He'll pay.

I did some research on Mikael Adu.

- You were his Child Welfare contact.

- All of that is confidential.

- Have a nice day.

- But you knew Adu!

I said no!

Marit? I don't get this.

Shouldn't you speak before Einar?

- Here you are put after him.

- Honestly... Thanks.


- Shouldn't I speak after your address?

- It's better if Einar goes on first.

We must put an end to this Adu story.

Everybody expects it.

- I thought you were informed?

- No.


Is it all right?

Not really. Now I have to

rewrite my introduction.


All right, everyone.

We're on in 5 minutes.

I'm ready.

Let's see how he will

get away with this.

He has to back down. If he thinks

he stands a chance against Marit Haug.

- At least she's better than him.

- Bergene is harmless.

- How can you say that?

- He's stupid enough to be honest.

Whereas this Marit Haug

gives their program a pretty face.


Hello, Bergen!

On behalf of the party...
