Movie Info

Based on the international bestseller, the riveting first film in the Department Q series introduces maverick detective Carl Mørck (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) who, after majorly botching an assignment, is relegated to reviewing cold cases. With his new partner (Fares Fares), the moody Mørck begins digging into the unsolved disappearance of a high-ranking female politician (Sonja Richter) who supposedly committed suicide but whose body was never recovered--a mystery that plunges the investigators into a dark and disturbing conspiracy. A nonstop series of ingenious twists and shocking surprises keep the suspense simmering in this stylish thriller.

Audience Reviews for The Keeper of Lost Causes (Kvinden i buret)

  • Nov 01, 2014
    Deeply average and decidedly televisual cold-case procedural.

    Good crime story, rather ingeniously unravelled.

    This movie is rather clichéd and has scenes and characters reminiscent of other major Scandi crime pieces: the Killing, Wallander, Borgen. As is so often the case, the victim is an attractive female who has to suffer: this is becoming nasty and uninteresting. The crime is implausible. The interiors of the police station look improbably grotty. The film is fairly predictable, even the little jokes. If you are looking for more Scandi crime, and don't insist on originality or subtlety, then this will fill in the time for you, and it looks like it will be the first episode in a series.
