THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES
[Kvinden i buret]
From the first of Jussi Adler-Olsen's best-selling "Department Q" thrillers, director Mikkel Nørgaard (KLOWN, BORGEN) and screenwriter Nikolaj Arcel (GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO, A ROYAL AFFAIR) stylishly bring Detective Carl Mørck and his team to the big screen. After being shot in the line of duty, Mørck (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) is eager to get back on the beat, but instead he's sent to work in the dingy basement office of Department Q administrating cold cases. Along with his assistant Assad (Fares Fares – EASY MONEY, ZERO DARK THIRTY), Mørck revisits the five-year-old "suicide" of a successful politician, only to find that she might still be alive.
