The Troll Hunter (Trolljegeren)
The government says there's nothing to worry about – it's just a problem with bears making trouble in the mountains and forests of Norway.

They soon find themselves documenting every move of this grizzled, unlikely hero – The Troll Hunter – risking their lives to uncover the secrets of creatures only thought to exist in fairy tales.
