MOTHER is a state-of-the-art recreational vehicle of Scandinavian design, brought to Papen County by the Norwegians, a group of investigators consisting of Magnus Olsdatter, Hedda Lillihammer, and Nils Nilsen. The vehicle is a fully functional crime lab including DNA analyzing capabilities. The side of it is labeled Mobile Investigative Lab Facility, or 'MILF' for short.
During an investigation into the disappearance of Dwight Dixon, MOTHER is hijacked by Ned and Olive, and accidentally driven off of a cliff. Its survival seems highly improbable, at least by real-world standards.
