This is the extraordinary story of the theft of one of the most emblematic paintings in history,
The Scream
by Edvard Munch.

Missing during the 1994 Winter Olympics in Norway, it was an outrageously audacious art theft that sparked a fast-paced cat-and-mouse adventure involving Norwegian authorities, media from around the world and Scotland Yard’s specialized art squad.

Only one man was convicted of the crime: former professional footballer Pål Enger. Why did he do it and what really happened? Was it money, fame or an obsession that had haunted him since he first saw the painting as a child on a school trip?

Mischievous and deeply moving, this is an extraordinary scandinoir
psychological scandinoir.
