    Fans of Norwegian crime novels might want to take a lighter look at life in Norway courtesy of Metrodome Distribution. With the first release announcement for the coming year, out on 7th January is Norwegian comedy Jackpot.

    Based on a story by Norway's leading crime writer, Jo Nesbø, it is directed by Magnus Martens and stars Kyrre Hellum, Mads Ousdal, Arthur Berning and Andreas Cappelen.

    With a runtime of 90 minutes and a 15 certificate, expect the recommended retail price to be around the £15.99 mark for the DVD.

    Synopsis and trailer follow...

    We meet a group of scruffy young men, all of them with a criminal background. Oscar, Thor, Billy and Tresko. They work at a factory in the middle of nowhere that makes plastic Christmas trees. And they bet on soccer.

    Oscar Svendsen wakes up, terrified and bloodied; a shotgun in his hands, in what was once a respectable strip joint near Svinesund, Sweden. He is surrounded by eight bodies, and police detective Solør has a gun aimed at his chest. Solør is convinced of his guilt, but Oscar persistently denies any wrongdoing.

    Reluctantly Oscar starts relating the incredible story of four men who won top prize in a soccer pool and suddenly found themselves 1,739,361 kroner richer. But it turned out to be difficult to divide the money by four.
