Olsen Gang composer dies

Bent Bjerre , 94

They made 14 of these crime comedies , theyre kinda similar to Batman show where characters are ott and police are not so smart

(Blu rays have english subs too)

These films were hugely popular in Denmark and Norway , Sweden also made their own version

Egon (the gangs boss , stubborn , short tempered , colorful language)
Benny (whimsical)
Kjell (poor Kjell is the scape goat of the gang)
Valborg (Kjells wife , always nagging on him)
Basse (Kjell and Valborgs son who also gets involved)
Police chief Hermansen (bufoonish and often foiled by the gangs many schemes)
assistant Holm (pretends to respect Hermansen but wants the power himself)

Jonssonligan. Pretty much started out as straight remakes (though with a somewhat different tone) and then just went in a different direction as it went on.

Also composed animated puppet movie Pinchcliffe Grand Prix , the most succesful movie in Norway (dunno about Titanic , that was prolly too a big $$$ there)

Norwegian Olsen Gang is almost shot for shot 100% rip off of the danish original , they didnt go to Paris in norwegian version though nor Copenhagen

Ove Verner Hansen (RIP) played the same role in danish and norwegian versions , the rent-a-thug Biffen/B?ffen , so hes a true Olsen veteran
