The Absent One
Nordic Noir
A stylish and strongly acted Nordic noir mystery.
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

In this second, even more successful adaptation of the Department Q series, Mikkel Norgaard returns to direct this taut story which alternates deftly between past and present. Morck (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) and his colleague, Assad (Fares Fares), run the cold-case division of the Copenhagen police. After a desperate appeal to Morck about an unsolved killing, the detective pair undertake a twisted mission to discover what really happened in the 1990s at one of the country’s poshest boarding schools.
