In Order of Disappearance (Norwegian: Kraftidioten) is a 2014 Norwegian black comedy action film directed by Hans Petter Moland and starring Stellan Skarsgård. The film had its premiere in the competition section of the 64th Berlin International Film Festival.[1]

Plot[edit]

Nils Dickman (Stellan Skarsgård) is a snow plow driver in the fictional town of Tyos, Norway. He learns that his son has died, supposedly of a heroin overdose. Nils knows his son was no addict but does not know what happened. While grieving he learns the local drug gang is behind the crime. He hunts down the two killers and kills both of them, but not before they confess. Based on this information, he goes after their boss. But a retaliation killing by the local boss puts him in the crossfire between two rival gangs: one local, one "imported" from Serbia.
