Description: Svend is a twitchy, petulant geek who's been picked on since he was a child. Bjarne is an anti-social pothead determined to stay as far away from the rest of humanity as possible. They're best friends, of course. Unable to put up with their arrogant boss any longer, the two go into business for themselves and set up their own butcher shop. Business is slow until Svend accidentally locks an electrician in the freezer overnight. He tries to cover up the death by grinding up the corpse, but, finding himself short of meat, is unexpectedly forced to sell the only "stock" he has in the shop. Almost immediately, the two entrepreneurs become the toast of the town. Riding high for the first time in his life, Svend is determined to keep things going--despite Bjarne's resistance--and soon people start disappearing.
