The Keeper Of Lost Causes - review

A perfectly reasonable Scandi-crime thriller with its fair share of thrills, twists and turns but feels identikit to the likes of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and The Killing

Based on the first of a series of books by Jussi Adler-Olsen about a homicide detective who is reassigned to Department Q, a dead-end job working through old cases with a new partner, it feels like the feature-length pilot episode of a new TV series rather than a cinematic effort.

Still, there is enough promise here to suggest more big screen outings for The Q Files.

3 stars
