Department Q: the first case opens
The latest crime sensation from Denmark, THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES is from the screenwriter of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO and director of BORGEN.
Tough chief detective Carl Morck (Nikolaj Lie Kaas – THE KILLING) heads up the newly established Department Q – a place where old, terminated cases go to die. Under explicit orders to only read and sort through cases with his new assistant, Assad (Fares Fares - ZERO DARK THIRTY), just a single day passes before Carl’s stubborn nature throws him headfirst into the mysterious case of a female politician who vanished from a ferry five years ago. The only witness was her brain damaged brother who was found on the car deck, screaming at the top of his lungs.
As Carl and Assad follow the clues and inconsistencies, they discover a crime of unimaginable horror.
