For over 40 years, Harold has been running a successful business, ”Lunde Furniture” together with his wife, Marny. But this comes to an end when IKEA decides to open a new superstore right next door to Harold's small furniture shop. Harold and Marny lose both their shop and their home to the bank, and to make matters worse, Marny is starting to lose her memory. In mounting anger and desperation, Harold wants revenge. He arms himself with a pistol, gets into his old Saab, and sets off for Älmhult, Sweden, in order to kidnap his nemesis – the founder of IKEA, Ingvar Kamprad.

"I like people – I must admit I have a weakness for those who make mistakes, who go completely in the wrong direction but with all the best intentions. They make me smile, laugh even, but I don't make fun of them. Humour and tenderness make good bedfellows."
