Ulrik Imtiaz Rolfsen


Ulrik Imtiaz Rolfsen, is best known for writing and directing the feature film Izzat (2005) and the NRK TV-serial TAXI (2011). Both won awards, and were set in a Norwegian-Pakistani community that felt both authentic and relevant to the audience.

Ulrik has a blog (in norwegian) here:



He has also helmed the two major feature film blockbusters:
Varg Veum – Bitter Flowers (2007) and The Last Joint Venture (2008).

His bestselling novel GASS (The Pipeline), is a sequel to TAXI. This is Rolfsen’s first serialized novel. Its level of tension and relevance to the present day, is at least as high as in his films. Javar Jafri is a perfect hero, whom we will surely meet again. English edition of the Javar Jafri serial S 2 “The Pipeline” will be out in soon, and according to the writer, a season 3 is under development.

Rolfsen is currently developing tv-serials for several US and UK based production companies.
