Another unsavory journey into contemporary Denmark's seamier underbelly.
Mikkel Norgaard, the director, propels the story by smartly sticking to the formula he used in the previous film: hints of menace, gorgeously shadowed shots and long flashbacks.
Although each of the first three films tells a full, discrete story, they work best cumulatively, as the ongoing adventures of one cranky, conscientious cop.
An awful number of cliches are being ticked off here (the Fincher-esque lighting, the dogged and socially inept cop), but it's a diverting potboiler for crime drama completists.
Tense right to the end.
Lie Laas' furrowed lead and Nørgaard's taut orchestration of flashback-pumped plotting help flesh out old clichés - at least until the climax takes a glum turn for the overwrought.
[A] grim treat, mining suspense and urgency from intensely plotted dual timelines of brutal criminality. A must for fans of rumpled, cynical, bitter detectives.
This compelling sequel makes for a nail biting murder mystery that skilfully presents a relatively clichéd story that we have all seen countless times before in a unique manner.
Moves along smartly enough, and manages the Nordic Noir trick of appearing very classy at all times while unspooling an incredibly lurid plot featuring lashings of schoolgirl sex and sadistic violence.
A lacklustre and cliché-ridden Danish crime sequel.
Finding a certain majesty in the murk, The Absent One is unashamedly derivative but remains a class act regardless.
The Absent One is a consistently engaging thriller which manages to build momentum to a violent and intense conclusion.
Although "The Keeper of Lost Causes" was more than less disappointing, I decided to give this a chance for want of "Mystery/Suspense" flicks. While the performances are outstanding (with Nikolaj Kaas topping the list), the mystery/suspense element is absent here. The absence of plot twists was a major letdown. I'd rather describe it as an action thriller (that's not edgy enough, but better than its prequel).
