Schweden in den 50er Jahren. Die Technik soll Einzug in die privaten Haushalte halten. Um den Werbefeldzug für die moderne Küche einleiten zu können, werden zuvor vom schwedischen Forschungsinstitut für Heim und Haushalt eingehende Studien zum Verhalten der Hausfrau in ihrer Küche vorgenommen. Am Ende der Versuchsreihe steht fest: Um ihrer Familie jeden Tag das Essen servieren zu können, läuft die schwedische Hausfrau jedes Jahr eine Strecke, die der zwischen Schweden und dem Kongo gleicht. Wenn man die Küche jedoch nach einem bestimmten Muster anordnen würde, dann müsste sie nur noch bis nach Norditalien laufen, um allen Küchenpflichten nachzugehen. Von diesem Erfolg beflügelt, sucht das Institut nun nach einer neuen Herausforderung. Diesmal sollen verlässliche Daten über eine weitere Zielgruppe eingeholt werden: Den männlichen Junggesellen. Zu diesem Zweck werden 18 Beobachter in das kleine Dorf Landstad in Norwegen geschickt, um an freiwilligen Probanden deren Küchenroutine zu studieren

Bitre blomster( Visual )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in Norwegian and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bitre blomster er den første filmen om privatetterforsker Varg Veum, basert på Gunnar Staalesens populære krimbøker. Når fireårige Camilla, datteren til den fremstående politikeren Vibeke Farang meldes savnet, trekkes privatetterforsker Varg Veum nærmest ved en tilfeldighet inn i saken. I tillegg til at datteren til Vibeke Farang er savnet, er også elskeren hennes, Karsten Aslaksen, som sunket i jorda etter et sent besøk samme kveld som Camilla forsvinner. Veum engasjeres for å finne den forsvunne elskeren som Varg snart finner forskanset i ei hytte på Voss. Aslaksen er imidlertid ikke i stand til å svare på spørsmål. Den gretne politietterforskeren Hamre er overbevist om at Aslaksen-saken er oppklart, men Hamre vet ikke alt Varg vet. Motarbeidet på alle kanter, innleder en trassig Varg sin ensomme jakt på svar i et regntungt Bergen, der sannheten tilsynelatende ligger like godt gjemt på byens solside som i dens trange og skyggefulle smug. Filmen hadde kinopremiere 28.9.2007, og fikk terningkast 2-4
