THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES ( MA 15+)
AN engrossing Danish crime procedural based on the international best- seller by Jussi Adler- Olsen. Nikolaj Lie Kaas stars as Detective Carl Morck, a troubled cop banished to a desk job where he is expected to close old unsolved cases at speed. Soon he becomes obsessed with a supposed suicide that could well be anything but. Devotees of painstakingly forensic Danish TV crime storytelling such as The Killing will fi nd The Keeper of Lost Causes quite rushed by comparison. Though this is a fair criticism, the fi lm is quite adept at covering its tracks, thereby allowing all big reveals to retain their shock factor. ( Stay away from the trailer, however, which gives away far too much in advance).
