It's sad to know that Kalde Hjerter (Cold Hearts), with premiere today: March 30., will be the last Veum-movie, at least for a while. Here is a trailer (in Norwegian):

Kalde Hjerter is the last in a series of 12 Varg-Veum-movies and to my knowledge, no more is planned at the moment. ;_; This last one is directed by Trond Espen Seim, the actor who plays Varg Veum.

Aslak Nore and Asbjørn Slettemark are two Norwegian journalists and editors that also have their own crime blog. As they have good connections, their blog is filled with newsworthy articles, authors, actors and interesting stuff for the Nordic crime connoisseur. The blog is in Norwegian.

OP-5 - En blogg om tv, film og krimlitteratur

From their blurb: "…men mest av alt håper vi du liker nerding rundt krim og thriller og spionhistorier like mye som oss, og kommer med tilbakemeldinger i kommentarfeltene."

Beneath the cuts are two Varg Veum fanfic. The first has teen-up rating and the second is gen (slash if you squint). The labels are in Norwegian.

Fioler er blå (Violets Are Blue)  )

Den som sover (The One Who Sleeps) )

When I was doing my research I went through all the Veum-dialog I could get hold of.  The most inspiring quotations are gathered here (in Norwegian). Especially Veum/Hamre-enthusiasts should pay attention to these. ;)

I have also set up a Varg Veum-biography, a Jakob E. Hamre-biography and a Veum-timeline. (All in Norwegian.) Lots of useful stuff for others contemplating writing Veum fanfic, in other words. :D

Varg Veum is the central character in a series of crime novels, written by Gunnar Staalesen, about a private detective who lives in Bergen, on the west coast of Norway. The books have been translated into several languages, including English, German, Swedish, and Danish.

The eleventh Varg Veum movie De døde har det godt, had its Norwegian premiere January 20. 2012. It got mixed reception, but here is at least a nice picture from it. More pictures from the Varg Veum movie productions.
