Mads Mikkelsen is an anagram of Naked Milk Mess. FACT.
Physically, Norwegians are the tallest of all Europeans. FACT.
Popular Icelandic band Sigur Ros do not sing in Icelandic. They vocals are just gibberish. FACT.
There are loads of awesome factoids out there about Nordic folk. Whether we're talking Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Finland or Denmark, Nordic countries rule at trivia. And they're also ruddy good at cinema too.
Which is why London is holding its very first Nordic Film Festival this weekend from (Friday 30th November until Tuesday 4th December) - and why we're giving away a pair of tickets to see the excellent 2006 film Jar City.
Adapted from the Icelandic novel, which I bought a couple of years ago from Waterstones when it was on offer for a measly £1.99 (FACT), Baltasar Kormákur's thriller is a cracking bit of crime cinema, with all the dark violence, cold landscapes and twisted characters we've come to expect from those wonderful people in the North of Europe. Just the thing to get you in the festive Christmas mood.
Jar City is showing on Sunday 2nd December at 6.45pm at London's lovely Riverside Studios in Hammersmith (right by the Thames, a 5 min walk from the tube station).
Any trivia will do. The best wins. GO.
