Sidse Babett Knudsen,
This was a big disappointment. Plot holes the size of a smaller planet, overacting, totally predictable and clichéed, bad casting and a totally unbelievable dialogue. And when I say plot, it's just to be polite there hardly is one. The prison scenes why are they in the movie at all? The court scenes the writers must know less than zero about how the judicial system works. Suspense what suspense? Humour nonexistent. And the quirky old DI who sleeps in his office... He's supposed to be a legend, "the best" but we see no evidence of this. On the contrary, he fails miserably...
I sincerely hope the book is better, because this is Bad with a capital B.
