So is the original also called Insomnia?

The 2002 remake of a 1997 Norwegian film about a Los Angeles homicide detective dispatched to a northern town to investigate the methodical murder of a local teen.

Thanks you guys. I'll find it. I'm curious to see how the two movies compare, other then the not being in English part. 8-)

The original is way darker. The main character (in Nolan's version played by Al Pacino) almost rapes the girl in the hotel, but also that dead dog he fires the bullet in, is not dead in the original.

I will have to check this one out, if it's Noruegan, is it also set in a place where daylight never fades?
