Movie Info

In an older apartment in Copenhagen, some craftsmen make a scary discovery: behind a fake wall they find three mummified bodies sitting around a dining table with a free space ready. Carl Mørck and Assad from Department Q now have to find out who the mummies are and for whom the fourth place is intended. They soon discover that the previous inhabitants of the apartment trace back to an infamous women's hospital at Sprogø island, where attempts at forced sterilization were a regular part of the daily lives of the women who were brought to the hospital. The horror at the hospital is an overdue chapter in the history of Denmark, but there are people who say that the experiments are still up in our time. Carl and Assad start a race with time to prevent new murders and assaults.

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

  • [A] high-gloss thriller... which is undeniably entertaining yet whose pleasures have the guilty edge of a particularly lurid airport read.

  • We are, therefore, in the field of cinema aimed at a wide spectrum of audiences, comparable in scope to books that last an airplane journey and with the same novelty as watching Detective Carl Mørck with a hangover. [Full review in Spanish]
