A New York detective investigates the death of his daughter who was murdered while on her honeymoon in London; he recruits the help of a Scandinavian journalist when other couples throughout Europe suffer a similar fate.
New York detective Jacob Kanon has a daughter. A beautiful, talented daughter who is brutally murdered as she honeymoons in blissful ignorance. Soon after, the strangest of postcards arrives on the desk of Swedish art critic Dessie Larsson... Across Europe, couples are being ruthlessly butchered in deliberate acts of violence with no end in sight. The only clues, are picture postcards sent to seemingly random journalists by a narcissistic killer, heralding the next horrific crime. Seen from the joint perspective of both the hunted and the hunters, THE POSTCARD KILLINGS digs deep into the most frightening aspects of the human psyche, drawing Jacob and Dessie into a nightmare from which there might be no escape. As the narrative explodes with operatic ferocity, our protagonists find themselves with an impossible choice to make.Written by
When Jacob is standing in the underground car park, he stands in front of the car for "C.Hardwick". Although we find out the C stands for Charles, Jeffrey Dean Morgan who plays Jacob, also plays Negan on the walking dead, and frequently appears on Talking Dead, which is hosted by someone with the same initial and last name, Chris Hardwick See more »

I really don't get the hate. Or the CSI references but then again I don't watch CSI....
There are a lot of themes in the movie which made it, to me, intellectually interesting. Big World historic themes if you're a love of art. There is enough drama and 'chiaroscuro' to make the film thoughtful, and enough mystery to make it a thriller. Fully recommend.
