Storyline

An old note is found in a bottle in Jutland which has traveled very long across the ocean a long time ago. The note is hard to decipher, but when the Danish investigator from Section Q receives it, the odd personalities within the section find a new angle on it and try to unveil yet another old and diabolic case even though the lead is cold. Written by Britt Engelhard Jadesø

Goofs

The Train is a German DB train and not a Danish DSB train. Actually the part with the DB train could be true to reality as some DB trains do extend their trips to Jutland in Denmark e.g. to Fredericia. But nowadays it is not possible to board a DB train at the town of Hadsten which has a quite small station being served by Danish regional trains. There is no connection by German IC Trains to Hadsten. See more »

Quotes

Johannes: And now... I'll take away your faith.
Carl Mørck: You're wasting time. I don't believe in God. I don't believe in anything. Take me instead, Johannes, take me instead.
Johannes: You're rescuing people you've never met. Of course you have faith. I've never met anyone, who's had as much faith as you...

Darker, in a Different Way

This third installment is, in many ways, the darkest of the series. It's not "deranged" dark in the manner of the disturbing "The Treatment" (a must see for lovers of the genre - but admittedly a tough film with psychologically destructive activities discussed) but that in addition to involving the murder and abuse of children, and the continuing psychological deterioration of one the its main characters, it also dares to challenge the concept of faith (although like most films that tread in this direction, it fails to spend the added time and argument that can successfully undermine even the most devout adherents, instead - as is also typical - backsliding a bit from it's own dark realistic world view to allow some warmth in). If the first two films challenged what we expect from this genre, and what we expect from genre protagonists, this film also challenges some deeper held beliefs (even if it doesn't quite go far enough) and is all the braver for the effort. Best if watched in order and I am delighted they are filming a fourth in this series!
