The Department Q Trilogy {2016}
« on: June 14, 2016, 09:06:40 PM »

The Department Q trilogy, which includes THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES, THE ABSENT ONE and A CONSPIRACY OF FAITH. These three Danish thrillers are adapted from the New York Times’ bestsellers by Jussi Adler-Olsen, directed by Mikkel Nørgaard (Klown, TV’s Borgen) and Hans Petter Moland (Zero Kelvin, Aberdeen, A Somewhat Gentle Man) and are all blockbusters domestically. Each film is a tightly crafted whodunit steeped in a chilling Gothic atmosphere.
Department Q: The Keeper of the Lost Causes 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.
The second installment, Department Q: The Absent One, the decades-old murder of a pair of twins is double the trouble for the detectives of Department Q. In 1994, an addict is convicted under suspicious circumstances of a brutal double homicide at an elite boarding school. Twenty year later, the supposedly open-and-shut case doesn’t look quite so pat to cold case crackers Carl Mørck (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) and his partner Assad (Fares Fares) whose investigation pits them against some of the most powerful men in the country who will go to extremes to bury the truth.
The third installment, Department Q: A Conspiracy of Faith, leads renegade cold case detectives Carl Mørck (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) and Assad (Fares Fares) to a shadowy religious community connected with a string of missing and murdered children—including two whose lives hang in the balance.

 The series premieres at the IFC Center and Video on Demand June 17th.
