Detective Katrine Ries Jensen and legal psychiatrist Thomas Schaeffer form a special unit at the Copenhagen Police investigating serial killings. A case from Schaeffer's past crops up. As a young psychologist, he held back from sending a patient, who was manically drawing the details of a traffic accident, to a secure hospital. Now these bloody scenes resurface. Written by
It seems as though the director had no clue as to how real murder crime scenes have a huge impact on the surroundings in urban environment.
In the first opening minutes several passengers on a public bus are gunned down in the middle of Copenhagen, yet no one really seems to care. No media or anything are at the scene the next day, the bodies are still exposed to the public, and the few cops wanders aimlessly around trying to look busy for the camera. In other words: a bad start to a mediocre movie.
The acting was good as it usually is in Danish movies, but the script was too weak and unrealistic. Unfortunately the plot it is pretty standard as well. Yes, there is a rather random twist at the end, but nothing in this film has any depth to it.
The two lead cops acts as irresponsible children, going places where no cop would ever go solo or without immediate backup. Even when they know who the killer is, no one is really searching for him except the small team of cops who seems to have very limited resources.
I recommend that you skip this one if you were not a big fan of the original series.
