    • Synopsis
    • For over forty years, Harold has been running a successful business, ”Lunde Furniture”, but now all that is over. IKEA has opened a vast new superstore at Åsane, right next door to Harold’s small furniture shop. Harold loses both shop and home. In mounting anger and desperation, Harold decides to exact revenge. He is going to kidnap his Nemesis – the founder of IKEA, Ingvar Kamprad. He arms himself with a pistol, gets into his old Saab, and sets off for Almhult, Sweden. The first person he meets in Sweden is Ebba, a lonely 16-year-old girl. She reckons the kidnapping is a brilliant idea, and this ill-assorted duo manage, through sheer coincidence, to abduct Ingvar Kamprad. Unfortunately, Kamprad is quite happy to be kidnapped, and sees the whole episode as an opportunity to buff up his own public image.
