Description

When rehabbing a downtown apartment building, some Copenhagen construction workers uncover a hidden room containing the mummified remains of three people sitting around a dinner table with an empty fourth chair. The discovery marks another mystery to be solved by Department Q, the surprisingly effective cold case unit, run by stubborn, traumatized Detective Carl Morck (Nicolaj Lie Kaas) and his personable assistants Assad (Fares Fares) and Rose (Johanne Louise Schmidt). Already the highest grossing Danish film ever, this is the fourth film based on the books by best-selling crime writer Jussi Adler, and like the others, it journeys deep into the undercurrents of abuse and malice lurking beneath the polished surface of Scandinavia. Here the mystery harks back to a reform school for girls on a remote island where the young inhabitants were sterilized without their consent.
