Trailer for The Keeper of Lost Causes.

How could we have a festival without a dose of Nordic noir? Bestselling Danish crime writer Jussi Adler-Olsen is a favorite among those who enjoyed Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy. Directed by Mikel Nørgaard (Klown; Borgen), The Keeper of Lost Causes kicks off a series of adaptations centering on hardboiled detective Carl Morck.

Following a shootout that left his two partners dead and paralyzed respectively, chief Detective Carl Morck is assigned to the newly established Department Q, a repository for cold cases. The department consists only of himself and his new assistant Assad. Although they receive explicit orders to restrict themselves to filing the cases, Morck’s stubborn nature throws them headlong into the mystery of politician Merete Lynggaard’s disappearance from a passenger ferry. The only witness is her brain-damaged brother. The case was put to rest as an apparent suicide. Unconvinced by this explanation, Morck and Assad set off on a journey that takes them deep into the undercurrents of abuse and malice that lurk beneath the polished surface of Scandinavia.
