For over 40 years, Harold has been running a successful small furniture shop in Bergen with his wife, Marny. But when IKEA decides to open a new superstore right next door, the two are unable to compete and lose both their shop and their home to the bank. In mounting anger and desperation, Harold wants revenge. After torching his store, he sets off for Älmhult, Sweden with a gun and a plan (sort of) to kidnap his nemesis – the founder of IKEA, Ingvar Kamprad. But unfortunately, Kamprad is quite happy to be kidnapped. “Bjørn Sundquist is brilliant as Harold. . . a fine example of Norwegian black comedy.”—Cinema Scandinavia.
