for Cinetalk.net

A note in a bottle is found  in Scotland which has traveled across the ocean for a long time. The note is hard to decipher, but when the Danish inspectors from Section Q get it, the investigation is brought to life…

Hans Peter Molland’s adaptation of this third installment in crime writer’s  Jussi Adler-Olsen  Department Q series  (following The Keeper of Lost Causes and The Absent One )  is the most appealing of the trilogy. Detectives Carl Morck and Assad (played by Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Fares Fares) are once again leading the investigation about a possible kidnapping / child-murder. This neat thriller most captivating part  lies in the way it deals with pain and God  within a community that has more faith in religion than the police.

Expertly handle by Hans Peter Molland (In ‘Order’ of Disappearance) from a tight script by Nikolaj Arcel (Royal AffairMillennium trilogy), this superior edge-of-your-seat thriller can be seen as a stand-alone film. As the main antagonist,  Pål Sverre Valheim Hagen (Kon-Tiki) gives a chilling performance .
