First police film Danish style
26 December 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

Anders Refn had a successful debut presenting this convincing drama with a psychological and critical depiction of society in the framework of a crime film effectively filmed by Mikael Salomon who later made it to Hollywood. There is great sympathy with the struggling temperamental police officer, Jens Okking, who cannot clear up the crime opposed by the elite of society administration. Transferred to another position he still insists on continuing his detection work but hampered all the way by top executives he cannot bring to justice. This sounds familiar, plot wise, but this was the first time a story like this premiered in a Danish film. Jens Okking received a Bodil award for his performance, and he went on to portray that kind of police officers in other films and TVseries.
