Competition: Win ‘Jackpot’ on DVD *closed*

Magnus Martens’ Scandinavian sleeper hit Jackpot (2011) is an exciting, playful and bloody comedy from the producer of 2006’s Cold Prey. Based on the book by Norway’s leading crime writer, Jo Nesbø, the film follows a group of scruffy young men, all of them with a criminal background, including Oscar (Kyrre Hellum), Thor (Mads Ousdal), Billy (Arthur Berning) and Tresko (Andreas Cappelen). To celebrate this release, we have THREE DVD copies of the film to give away, courtesy of Metrodome Distribution. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Oscar Svendsen wakes up, terrified and bloodied; a shotgun in his hands, in what was once a respectable strip joint near Svinesund, Sweden. He is surrounded by eight bodies, and police detective Solør has a gun aimed at his chest. Solør is convinced of his guilt, but Oscar persistently denies any wrongdoing. Reluctantly Oscar starts relating the incredible story of four men who won top prize in a soccer pool and suddenly found themselves 1,739,361 kroner richer. But it turned out to be difficult to divide the money by four.
