Carl Morck (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) is a disgraced detective who is reassigned to the newly created Department Q, a basement-bound job filing cold cases, and given a new assistant: Assad, a smart young cop. Although they receive explicit orders to only read and sort through the cases, Morck's stubborn nature throws them headlong into the mystery of a missing politician's disappearance five years earlier. Believing the case to be unsolved, they embark on a dangerous journey that will lead them into the dark underworld of Copenhagen.

If you loved the Bridge, The Killing and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, you will enjoy this, Nikolaj Lie Kaas is perfect as the guy with a massive chip on his shoulder who only lives for his work and Fares Fares is equally impressive as the antidote for his misery. The story is told from both the victim and the investigator perspective which I think works really well and the ending suggests there may be a follow up in which case I can't wait.
