Having blown the doors off the Danish box office - where it set multiple records - and with the sequel already deep into the production process, Mikkel Norgaard's big screen adaptation of Jussi Adler Olsen's crime thriller The Keeper Of Lost Causes
is headed to UK cinemas and has a brand new trailer.
Based on the award-winning novel Mercy, the first of the bestselling Department Q crime fiction series by Jussi Adler-Olsen, THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES is a powerful and gripping thriller starring Nicolaj Lie Kaas (The Killing), Sonja Richter (The Homesman) and Fares Fares (Zero Dark Thirty, Safe House) from the screenwriter of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Carl Mørck (Kaas) is a troubled detective who takes the fall when his partner is wounded during a routine operation. Reassigned to the newly created Department Q, a basement-bound job filing cold cases, he is allocated a new assistant, Assad (Fares), a smart young Muslim cop. Always one to go against orders, Mørck throws them headlong into the mystery of a politician's disappearance (Richter) five years earlier. Believing the case to be unsolved, they embark on a dangerous journey that will uncover a shocking truth, leading to a thrilling and unforgettable climax.
This latest offering avoids any dialogue whatsoever - odd, given how hugely popular Scandinavian crime series have proven in the UK - but also offers up a very moody and atmospheric take on things while offering up a bit more story than could be gleaned from earlier Danish trailers. Take a look below.
