Morck is satisfied with the notion of picking up long-cold leads. So he's naturally intrigued when a closed case lands on his desk. A brother and sister were brutally murdered two decades earlier, and one of the suspects, part of a group of privileged boarding-school students, confessed and was convicted.

In Homicide they call them the Arab and the Drunk.
Is he always the life of the party?
-Don't mind him. Carl prefers working, that's all.
I never met anyone as destructive as him. I don't think I'm out out for this.
-Rose. We need you. I need you. Okay?
How can you stand him?
-I'm all he's got.
Have you got a shred of evidence? Apart from a homeless bag lady and a junkie prostitute who just OD'ed?
Sight in a rifle scope:
Here. It's loaded. Everything in that circle is yours. You decide if it lives or dies.
A '68 Maserati?
-It's my hobby. I buy them used and fix them up.
A used Maserati? Still expensive.

In my line of work, you find out that everyone lies and steals and keeps dirty secrets. You see people smiling playing with their kids and buying
house and garden, and you think maybe you can be like that one day. Maybe it can be like that. Some mornings I waver between getting up or popping a jar of pills to put an end to it all. Know why I don't? Because of you. Because people like you need me. The only thing that matters to me
is that you get your life back. So you don't need to run anymore.
Did you send her to boarding school after her dad died?
- You make it sound like a bad thing.
One of my tricks gives me a bonus, if I let him slap me around. And then I put a plastic bag over his head so he chokes while l jerk him off.
-Don't remove the plastic bag next time.

We can't break in on your gut feeling.
-I'll get a warrant after we find what we're looking for.
Remember what we talked about? It's not too late to get away.
Did I ask you to come? I don't need you.
-What's your plan? You don't have a plan.

You can't see it, but I'm more than four month's pregnant. Do you want to feel?
- No.
Ulrik is a loner. He only leaves his manor to go to work. But he's got one weakness.
- And that is?

Detectives Mørck and Assad decided to look into a twenty years old closed double murder case; fast moving, intense, very dark and gritty noir. The murders and villains were brutal but not entirely original. But the way the case was retold, re-investigated and re-closed were imaginative. Loved the chemistry of the three actors in Dept. Q and the actor was super playing the "absent one" Kimmie.

Per wiki: The Absent One (Danish: Fasandræberne), also known as Department Q: The Absent One, is a 2014 Danish crime mystery film directed by Mikkel Nørgaard (da) and co-written by Nikolaj Arcel and Rasmus Heisterberg (da), based on Jussi Adler-Olsen's novel of the same name. It is the second film in the Department Q series following the 2013 film The Keeper of Lost Causes, and preceding the 2016 film A Conspiracy of Faith.
