Deadline Torp (2005) Online
A faithful dramatization of the real life hostage drama that shook Norway in 1994. On September 28th, 1994, two Swedish men robbed a bank in the small Norwegian town of Larvik. Soon, with a massive police hunt underway, the robbers ended up taking two civilians and two police officers hostage. Next morning the drama would come to a deadly halt at nearby Torp Airport, where for the first time in history, a Norwegian police chief was forced to give the order to shoot to kill.

Despite telling a real-life-story that most Norwegians knew the outcome of, the last episode was seen by 917,000 viewers, making it the highest rated Norwegian-produced drama series in the history of Norwegian television.
The TV premiere was postponed one week out of respect for the numerous Norwegians who had lost friends and relatives in the tsunami disaster.
Just as in the series, one of the hostage-takers did in fact demand that the police negotiator call him "Tony Montana" (the Al Pacino character in Scarface).
Shown on TV as 2-part one hour episodes
