"The Keeper of Lost Causes"


This 2013 Danish film starring my new favorite actor, Fares Fares, was the top-grossing movie in Denmark that year.

It's based on a novel by Jussi Adler-Olsen, the first of four features taken from his Department Q series.

Fares and his co-star, Nikolaj Lie Kaas (also excellent) appear in all four.

I found this movie utterly absorbing and can't wait to see the next three.

The second in the series, "The Absent One," broke the box office record set by its predecessor; the third, "A Conspiracy of Faith," premiered in Denmark in March 2016 and in the U.S. in June of last year.
