Added DiffLines:

** In old Scandinavian folklore, "Christian" was sometimes used as a synonym for "human". People believed there were a number of humanoid species, but only humans were Christians. So when it was said in old tales that trolls could smell "Christians", it really meant they could smell humans. When this is taken completely literally, however, hilarity ensues.

** This can also be taken as commentary on how Christianity's arrival in Norway (and the rest of Scandinavia) started to push out the old beliefs - the trolls see Christians as a threat to their existence/habitat.

** It may also be taken as pointing to a demonic origin for the trolls - opposing Christianity for the sake of some devilish master.

* ArmourIsUseless: Completely subverted. Hans dons a full suit of what appears to be homemade plate armor, complete with helmet ("I hate this crap," Hans grumbles) in order to go toe-to-toe with a mammoth bridge troll and get a blood sample. The beast smacks him around pretty good, but he emerges bruised but mostly unscathed thanks to his protective armor.

* [[YourVampiresSuck Your Trolls Suck]]: Hans explicitly mentions the Norwegian stories about trolls collected by Asbjornsen and Moe (the Norwegian equivalents to the Brothers Grimm) as being mostly fairy tales with wildly inaccurate information.

* TheMole: The "seismologist" they meet in the mountains near the end. [[spoiler: It's implied he's a TSS agent who tipped them off on where the filmmakers would be.]]

** Kalle's death also falls into this nebulous realm. While it's stated that trolls can smell the blood of Christians, Kalle really didn't do himself any favors by going into a full blown panic mode in his final moments and making big enough of a racket that the trolls pretty much became alerted to his presence anyways. While it is possible that the trolls smelled his blood during his last minute confession that he was a Christian, it's equally as likely that they became alerted to him because, well... he just started panicking and making enough noise to give away their location.
