The usual Nordic Noir garnishings of furrowed seriousness, chilly visuals and grim subject matter add a dash of flavour to this plodding crime procedural but still fail to enliven it.
Like the first episode of a finely crafted TV series you won't want to miss, this sharply involving Danish thriller introduces us to the mystery-solving duo of Department Q.
A grim story involving a missing woman is competently told, but there is no disguising the utterly routine nature of the material.
Yet another example of fine cinema to come out of Scandinavia and while not quite as triumphant as fellow thrillers it remains an accomplished, commendable offering.
Lovers of tense, twisted Scandinavian thrillers will want to seek out The Keeper Of Lost Causes, a pacy, well-crafted adaptation of the Jussi Adler-Olsen bestseller.
This convoluted and unremarkable Scandi thriller at least boasts an endearingly taciturn lead in Nikolaj Lie Kaas.
Only the hardiest of souls will make it through the film without wincing, retching or squirming.
Odd-couple chemistry and a dark underbelly keep this Danish noir adaptation compelling.
This is so grimly compelling that even if you want to look away, you won't be able to.
[There's a] Hitchcockian element to the film's suspense. It's a formula for an unnerving thriller that, for the most part, has succeeded thanks to supple direction and eerie, muted photography by Eric Kress.
It has all the features of a Scandi noir policier, but the director comes from the Lego School of Film-making. He snaps it together to make a fast-moving crime vehicle, but I suspect the instructions were upside down.
On a strictly mechanical level, it all works and if you can adapt to its glum brand of wit, you can extract a few laughs from it.
This predictable and one-dimensional Danish crime thriller sees an anti-social detective ignoring the rules and trying to rescue a damsel in distress.
An efficient Danish thriller/police procedural that has us on the edge from start to finish with its economical and powerful screenplay
If you enjoyed The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, you will be interested in this intriguing gritty thriller
