39) Int. Gällivare - pub - evening
Lasse and Magnus are entering a pub. The
barkeeper greets them with a short nod.
Magnus heads for the bar and orders two beers.
Lasse observes Magnus who sits down at a table
and waves to join him.
Lasse goes to sit down next to Magnus. He
feels visibly out of his element.
Relax. It's just a change of scenery.
I'm not fond of such places. It's precisely
why we are finally going on this journey; to leave such things behind.
I know. Just let us celebrate one last
You mean drink?
The barkeeper brings 2 glasses. Magnus swigs
Call it like you want.
Lasse pushes his glass aside.
That is nothing for me...
Magnus takes another big sip.
Well... If you want to... celebrate once
again, do it then.
One last time...
In that case I would rather go for a walk to
savour the evening in a different way...
Okay. Where shall we meet?
I will come along in a little while.
In 2, 3 hours...
As he leaves the pub Lasse shortly looks back
to Magnus and shakes his head. Magnus doesn't notice it because he is engaged
with the second beer.
Series of shots (Magnus has a lot of drinks)
A blonde girl and 3 men are entering the pub
and sit down at the neighbouring table. Magnus, already tipsy, eyes them up and
gives the girl a lascivious look.
Magnus downs his beer with one gulp and
empties a small glass of vodka. He gets up and positions himself at the neighbouring
What do you want?
She indicates her friends to stay calm.
Can I take a seat here?
He drums his fingers impatiently on the table.
You don't seem to be a local?!
No, I am from Gothenburg. And you are quite
He winks at her.
Well, at least you're honest.
Magnus smirks suggestively.
The men give him a hostile look.
Just quite ill-bred.
Come on, just piss off!
What's the point, Marie?
Marie... beautiful name.
So, what brings you here Sweetheart? Are you
on holiday or are you a criminal on the run?
Somehow we're all on the run, aren't we?
Stop babbling and just piss off.
Are those your lapdogs?
Klaas stands up with a rush, takes hold of
Magnus and seizes him by the collar.
You're quite life-weary, aren't you? Fuck
off, or I'll smash your face in.
Hey, hey, okay, easy...
Calm down Klaas. Not again.
Klaas releases Magnus.
Okay, cut it out. Just sit down at your
table and order another beer. It'll be healthier for you, believe me.
Magnus claps Klaas on the shoulder.
Go fuck yourself, it's good for stress.
Right, that's it!
Klaas grabs Magnus and pushes him violently
against the wall so that he can hardly breathe.
He is just about to hit Magnus in the face...
In this moment Lasse returns.
Hey, stop it.
Klaas lowers his fist and turns around. He can
see that Marie has jumped up from her chair.
Lasse is standing baffled at the entrance door.
That your friend?
Klaas turns to Marie and they exchange glances.
(quietly but firmly to Magnus)
Fuck off! If I ever see your face 'round
He releases Magnus who has to gather himself.
Nothing would have happened to me. I've got
my Swedish Jesus with me.
Magnus fishes some money out of his pocket and
puts it on the table.
Come on, let's go Jesus!
Magnus grabs the shoulder of speechless Lasse and
drags him out of the pub.
