Department Q Series Trailer

"I have to go on. I need to know what happened." IFC has released a trailer for a trilogy of crime mystery films from Scandinavia adapted from the Department Q series of books. While there are three separate films in the series, IFC's new trailer is for the entire "Department Q Series" or "Department Q: Trilogy". They tell unique stories of two police inspectors digging into different cold cases. The films were released individually in Europe starting in 2013 and are titled The Keeper of Lost Causes, The Absent One and A Conspiracy of Faith. The first two were directed by Mikkel Nørgaard, and the last one in the trilogy was just released this year, directed by Hans Petter Moland. If you're a fan of crime thrillers or want some more Scandinavian mystery similar to The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo, don't miss out on these. Take a look.

Here's the new official US trailer for Mikkel Nørgaard's Department Q Series, from IFC Films (via TMB):

Based on Jussi Adler-Olsen's international bestselling novels, the riveting Department Q series introduces maverick detective Carl Mørck (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) who, after majorly botching an assignment, is relegated to reviewing cold cases. With his new partner Assad (Fares Fares) and secretary Rose (Johanne Louise Schmidt) the moody Morck digs into shocking unsolved mysteries including the kidnapping of a high-ranking government official, a brutal prep school murder and a bloody message from two children presumed dead. A nonstop series of ingenious twists and shocking surprises keep the suspense simmering in these three stylish thrillers: The Keeper of Lost Causes, The Absent One and A Conspiracy of Faith. The first two films in the series are directed by filmmaker Mikkel Nørgaard, also responsible for the Klown and Klown Forever films. The screenplays for all three were written by Nikolaj Arcel. IFC Films will release the Department Q Series in select theaters + on VOD starting June 17th this summer. Anyone interested?

NICE. I love the concept of the series and will definitely seek this out!

More and more, I think that police films/series have any value only if they are in some way related to politics. Some Scandinavian series, like 'Killing' and 'The Bridge' are probably the reason why they are so good and mostly better than American ones ...
