The Director Of KLOWN Goes Dark With Crime Thriller THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES
And here it is.
Norgaard is currently in post on The Keeper of Lost Causes, the first of four proposed feature films adapted from Jussi Adler-Olsen's Department Q crime novels. What's this? A new series of Scandinavian crime films based on popular novels? Yeah, your mind is supposed to go where it's going right now. Handling the adaptation of this first installment from page to screen is Nikolaj Arcel, director of Oscar nominee A Royal Affair and - coincidentally - screenwriter of the original film version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.
Nikolaj Lie Kaas takes the lead along with Fares Fares - recently seen in Zero Dark Thirty - and Sonja Richter. Due for an October release in Denmark there is no trailer just yet but there have been a pair of stills released. Check both in the gallery below and remember you can click to enlarge.The odd-couple policemen, Carl Mørck and Assad, are working in Department Q; the department for near-terminated cases. They get involved in a five year old case concerning a missing woman, Merete, and are soon on a journey through Scandinavia's darkest corners to find a psychopathic killer. But the truth is worse than they ever imagined.
