Theatrical poster for Nokas (2010).
Nokas is a 2010 film directed by Erik Skjoldbjærg (Insomnia) about the events surrounding the biggest bank robbery in Norwegian history, the theft of 57.4 million Kroner ($9.3 million USD) from a Norwegian Cash Service (NOKAS) counting center in the city of Stavanger on April 5, 2004. The film attempts to be an accurate recreation of the robbery, and uses many of the same locations in Stavanger where the actual events occurred.
The following weapons were used in the film Nokas:
Glock 17 pistols are seen in the holsters of several of the robbers. A Glock is also used by a robber to shoot at officer Håland through the windshield of his getaway vehicle.
2nd Generation Glock 17 - 9x19mm.

Smith & Wesson Model 10
Smith & Wesson Model 10 revolvers are used by officers of the Norwegian Police Service (Politi), most notably by Erik Håland (Morten Håland) when he fires at the robbers as they attempt to flee the scene. The Model 10 has since been replaced by the Heckler & Koch P30.
Trivia note: Of the approximately 79 shots fired by Politi officers between 1994 and 2004, 48 were fired during the NOKAS robbery.
