Fans of the current wave of Nordic Noir - high class crime films and television series coming from Scandinavia, including the likes of The Killing
, The Bridge
and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
- have been keeping an eye out for some time now on The Keeper Of Lost Causes
Directed by Mikkel Norgaard (Klown
), The Keeper Of Lost Causes
adapts the first of Jussi Adler-Olsen's popular series of Department Q crime novels with Nikolaj Lie Kaas playing Carl Mørck - a burned out detective reassigned to investigate cold cases.
Following a shootout that left his two partners respectively dead and
paralyzed, chief detective Carl Mørck is assigned to the newly
established Department Q, a department for old, terminated cases. The
department consists only of himself and his new assistant Assad.
Although they get explicit orders to only read and sort through the
cases, only a single day passes before Carl's stubborn nature throws
them headfirst into the mystery of Merete Lynggaard's disappearance; a
well-known female politician who vanished five years ago from a
passenger ferry. The only witness is her brain-damaged brother who was
found on the car deck, screaming at the top of his lungs. The case was
put to rest as an apparent suicide. Unconvinced by this explanation Carl
and Assad venture on a journey that will take them deep into the
undercurrent of abuse and malice that lurks beneath the polished surface
