Flickan i Jordkällaren is a classical whodunnit thriller with all ingredients a movie needs in this genre. The two main problems in the movie - who was this dead girl and why did she die in the cellar - are kept unsolved quite long. The spectator gets several possible killers and scenarios and is lead into wrong directions as it is essential in a whodunnit. The investigation even leads Beck to Germany where he meets a colleague, Kommissar Sperling. A short sequence of the German TV-Series Aktenzeichen XY is shown, in which the police calls for help to identify the little girl. This creates a realistic environment and makes Flickan i Jordkällaren to one of the best Beck movies.
