Storyline

Two workmen make an alarming discovery in an older Copenhagen apartment: hidden behind a false wall are three mummified corpses, sitting around a dining table with one empty seat left. The case quickly ends up on the desk of Detective Superintendent CARL MØRCK and his assistant, ASSAD, and it is up to them to figure out, who the mummies are as well as who the fourth seat is meant for. Carl and Assad put all effort in to finding the tenant of the apartment and they end up finding clues tracing back to the notorious institution for 'wayward' girls on the island of Sprogø, where extreme neglect and medical experiments in forced sterilization are a part of everyday life. Even though the horrors of Sprogø are a closed chapter in Danish history, there are now people claiming the experiments have continued to go on up until today. Carl and Assad start a race against time to prevent new murders and attacks from happening.

Don't worry, they still pull it off
22 April 2019 | by dakjetsSee all my reviews

Finally a new reunion with Carl Mørch and Assad with a new crime mystery, the fourth in the series and so far the last one that is planned. It's a shame if there aren't any more, because again this is awesome crime; exciting, unpredictable and raw. Unlike the previous films, the action here is more comprehensive with more elements than what is first assumed. The film manages to balance this well. Still, I think this is a small minus. The previous films were all about a particular event, which they investigated. Here, there are both conspiracy theories and more comprehensive, than the more linear predecessors. Nevertheless, this holds plenty. Contrary to all that goes on television of crime series and movies, Journal 64 is liberatingly different and much more exciting and therefore interesting for anyone who loves good crime.
