The Cold-Case Chase: Missing Files from Department Q

Ahead of THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES, released on 29 August, a Cold-Case Chase has been launched…

THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES is the first thrilling adaptation of the bestselling Department Q crime novels by Jussi Adler-Olsen. Carl Mørck (Nikolaj Lie Kaas, The Killing) is a disgraced detective who is reassigned to a basement-bound job filing cold cases in the newly created Department Q. He is also allocated a new assistant, Assad (Fares Fares), a smart young cop. Always one to go against orders, Mørck throws them headlong into the mystery of a politician’s disappearance five years earlier. Believing the case to be unsolved, they embark on a dangerous journey that will lead them into the dark underworld of Copenhagen.



Department Q have issued the following statement:

Breaking news: We can confirm reports that 15 cold-case files have gone missing from Department Q. As yet we have no leads as to the identity of the perpetrator. However, we are receiving reports that the files in question are being spotted in towns and cities all over the country, from Edinburgh to Exeter.

These anonymous tip-offs have been invaluable in helping us to recover the missing files, and we are hugely grateful for the public’s help in the search. To demonstrate our appreciation, we are offering a wide range of rewards to those who successfully track down one of the files. Prizes include a year’s Picturehouse Membership, treats from the Nordic Bakery, a Nordic Noir box set and much more. In addition, all those clever enough to find a missing file will be in with a chance of winning a trip to Denmark for a tour of Zentropa Studios and a screening of the second film in the Department Q series, THE ABSENT ONE.

The files might be hidden absolutely anywhere, and it’s vital that you stay alert in order to maximise the chances of finding them. As soon as we have any updates we’ll inform you immediately through THE KEEPER OF LOST CAUSES Facebook page.

Once again we are very grateful for your help in solving the case. Good luck!
