Insomnia
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Erik Skjoldbjaerg


Swedish detective Jonas Engstrom is working out of the Norwegian city of Oslo after being transferred following an indiscretion with a witness. When he finds himself investigating the murder of a young woman just beyond the Arctic Circle in the gray Norwegian coastal town of Tromso, sunlight, fog, the 24-hour sunlight, and suspicious locals conspire to push Engstrom to the edge of sanity. A lack of sleep, questionable ethics, and a fatal mistake in his investigative procedure cause this lonely outsider to battle himself as much as the locals in his fight to solve the case.
