Susy is an ice hockey goalie surrounded by dark forces, in Kenneth Karlstad's riveting video for Sassy 009.

She's is the new girl on the team - who looks like she's heading into trouble. Is she been targeted by unseen bullies, or a faceless figure watching from the stands? But when she dons the goalminder gear, and the track kicks in, Susy comes into her own.

Karlstad - nominated at this year's UKMVAs for his grimly dark video for Sludge - turns attention to the visceral appeal of an ice hockey match, which is as fastmoving and violent as any men's game. It's an unexpected shift, that works superbly with the Norwegian electronic pop outfit's Maybe In The Summer. And great camerawork that delivers the action from different perspectives - including Suzy's.
