A darkly compelling, skillfully crafted cold case thriller.
[An] expertly plotted Nordic noir.
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.
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.
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.
For all its familiarity and brooding Scandinavian characters, The Keeper of Lost Causes is still a well-presented good yarn.
While I enjoyed the traditional greyness and the abused whippet blondes, this feels more like a thin episode of CSI: Copenhagen than anything that resembles a film.
[A] grim treat, mining suspense and urgency from intensely plotted dual timelines of brutal criminality. A must for fans of rumpled, cynical, bitter detectives.
The climax is ultimately predictable, but Nørgaard and writer Nikolaj Arcel do manage to ratchet up some tension in the final third.
It sleepwalks through an icky narrative that could have been lifted from any slick and soulless television crime drama.
Another compelling Nordic mystery to unravel.
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.
