A real-life detective story

Early one morning in February 1965 a young man walks down a street in Oslo and trips over a wire. This unleashes a powerful grenade explosion – one of five that would shake the Norwegian capital during the first half of the year. The explosions seem completely random and the investigators have no leads, causing both anxiety and suspicion to spread through the city. Through the use of archive material, reenactments and interviews with victims and investigators THE GRENADE MAN tells a thrilling detective story about Norway's first encounter with terror since World War II.
