The film was a box-office success, and it was seen by 443,680 people, which made it the fifth-most-viewed film in Norwegian cinemas in 2012 (after The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and ahead of The Dark Knight Rises).[4]

The film was rated four stars by Dagbladet, Verdens Gang, Dagsavisen, and FilmMagasinet, and three stars by Aftenposten.
