Just as Thomas (Mads Mikkelsen) is about to step into the limelight of corporate leadership, a ghost from his past comes back to haunt him. Before he knows what's happening, people around him drop like flies and he finds himself at the hand of mysterious blackmailers. You can tell this movie is based on a novel (by Jesper Kärrbrink), and in a bad way. There are just too many loose ends for a feature-length exposition. Behind layers of deception and betrayal, there is nothing but more layers yet. I found it hard even to keep track of the players, both individual and institutional, as Thomas is caught in a circle of rising stakes and increasing violence. Go see it if you liked "The Firm" or Michael Almereyda's "Hamlet".
