A Cinema Success
The stories about Egon Olsen and the frustrated policeman Hermansen has captured the imagination of the entire Norwegian audience for 50 years.
Even though they break into safes, steal, and try to pull off the ultimate heist, the Olsenbanden gang are also good-natured crooks with traits that remind us of most ordinary people. Maybe it is because we do see ourselves in them that the films still feel relevant after 50 years.
