First Look: The Absent One
For fans of The Killing, Borgen and The Bridge comes The Absent One, the thrilling follow-up to The Keeper of Lost Causes. Based on Disgrace, the hugely successful Department Q novel by Jussi Adler-Olsen, The Absent One is released on 8 April, with a Discover Tuesday slot on 12 April at Picturehouse Cinemas around the UK.
In 1994 two young twins are found brutally murdered in a summer cottage. A number of clues point in the direction of a group of young upper class students from a nearby boarding school, but the case is closed as a local outsider pleads guilty and is convicted for the murders.
When the case ends up on Carl Mørck’s desk 20 years later, he soon realises that something is terribly wrong. As Carl and Assad start investigating, they are led on to an old emergency call from a desperate girl who seems to know the secrets of the murders. Soon they are plunged into an intense search for the girl, Kimmie, who has been missing since the murders happened.
But Carl and Assad are not the only ones trying to track her down as the girl’s testimonial is of great danger to a group of influential men at the top of society who will do all they can to keep her silent.
