Bitter Flowers (Bitre Blomster) is 2007 Norwegian crime thriller directed by Ulrik Imtiaz Rolfsen. It is the first in a series of six films about the private detective Varg Veum, based on the books by Gunnar Staalesen. The film stars Trond Espen Seim as Veum.


A man vanishes without a trace. His lover, a married, successful politician, discreetly contacts private investigator Varg Veum for assistance. Varg finds her lover murdered, and the politician's husband is arrested for the murder. However, Varg accuses the police of miscarriage of justice and gets involved in an international murder case branching out far beyond Norwegian borders, with adversaries who will stop at nothing.
