The score by Ola Fløttum is full of starkly beautiful dark strings and mood pieces washed over with the occasional synth drone or texture, it’s hauntingly beautiful, captivating and absolutely ranks as one of our favourite scores from the last few years, if you were a fan of Let The Right One In you should immediately seek out Thelma as we are sure you’ll fall in love with it as much as we did.
