The Keeper Of Lost Causes (Denmark, 2013) – Australian Television Premiere
Tough chief detective Carl Mørck heads up the newly established Department Q – a place where old, terminated cases go to die.

The only witness was her brain-damaged brother who was found on the car deck, screaming at the top of his lungs.
