Suspense Movie

Journal 64 Late justice seems even more precious with the grossly neglected Danish suspense series

In the mainland is a seriously neglected series, Douban marked the number of people who have seen the basic only about a thousand people, for thriller fans and reasoning fans, this series has a very high watchability, highly recommended to everyone.When the first part of the series “Caged Woman” came out in 13, it didn’t attract too much of my attention. The name of a movie is really too important, my initial impression of the name, is a B-movie depicting a strange case of perversion. The second one, with the not-so-great name “Pheasant Killer”, I didn’t start watching either. The third one, “Conspiracy of Faith”, was released before I paid attention to this series.

The first thing I noticed is that the series has a very stable rating at IMDB, with all three films receiving a 7+ rating. European and American audiences are relatively picky about this type of film, and IMDB is relatively accurate in rating films from other countries, except for the Indian curry and Turkish Ottoman water army that have taken over.

Secondly, I learned that this series is based on a series of crime novels by Danish best-selling author Jussi Adler-Olsen. I have not read these novels to this day, but I have a very good impression of the Scandinavian mystery novels after the new millennium. Sweden’s Stig Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy and Norway’s Ju Nesbo’s series of crime novels are the novels that impressed me the most after the new millennium.

After the “Conspiracy of Faith” came out and dragged on for two years, I still didn’t watch the series, but after the final chapter of the series “Medical Record 64” came out earlier this year, I jacked the whole series for four days, two hours a day  from the first episode, and felt very good. The series is really underrated, just a little less than the Millennium Trilogy, with a very high watchability.

The main character, Carl, is a brave, dedicated but slightly impulsive Danish police. A serious social phobic with an IQ of 120 and an emotional IQ of zero. A breach of rules during a mission, in the absence of support into the scene, resulting in two partners a death and a serious injury. Carl’s reputation in the police department hit rock bottom, no police officers are no longer willing to become his partner. The police department placed him in a special unit in the basement, ‘Department Q’. A dump filled with files of unresolved cases over five years old. And he’s joined by a bearded, Middle Eastern Muslim named Assad, a very considerate warmonger. The two fringe characters of the police department pass their boring working hours among the stacks of paper. Soon after Carl discovers suspicion in a five-year-old suicide case, a beautiful congressman who was dependent on her autistic brother jumped overboard on a ferry, and Carl and Asad discover in the confusing fragmented clues that the woman may not be dead, but in the midst of a five-year-long kidnapping imprisonment.

When I watched the first episode of “Caged Woman” I felt great about the suspense set in the movie, I knew a friend as a child who was particularly good, he could tie a very fun knot, a thousand head a mess, every time I hate to get off the scissors. To his hands he just untie the rope head of one or two buckles, a shake, the rope will all open into a straight line. Now there are a lot of rice bags are similar, cut a buckle, pull the rope head a tug on the bag opened at once. I like this kind of work in the work of deduction novels can be buried buckle, “Caged Woman” in this buckle is the case of the only witness autistic brother of the knot. Carl this is powerless, he has obstacles to interact with normal people, Asad and the autistic brother’s communication became the key to the whole case will be clear. The second episode “Pheasant Killer” is an old case of twenty years ago. The case of the woman in the cage makes the department Q of Carl and Asad a war of fame, and the addition of the thoughtful female secretary rose makes the department Q a solid iron triangle. The son and daughter of a departed police officer were killed twenty years ago while attending an aristocratic school, and the killer was given a light sentence by a famous lawyer, while the father believes that there is another real killer. The father believes that the murderer is the real killer. After asking Carl for help, the father slashes his wrists in anger and commits suicide. Deeply remorseful, Karl and Asad once again embark on a difficult journey to break the darkness. In the third episode, “The Conspiracy of Faith,” a drifting bottle that has been lost to the sea for six years is found, containing a letter of distress from a kidnapped child. The police are skeptical of this investigation, but as the investigation progresses, Karl and Asad gradually discover that the victimized child is not simply one, but a series of brutal child abduction and murder cases, a conspiracy to subvert people’s faith with the help of Satan’s power. The final chapter of the series, “Medical Record 64,” is one of the best in the series. 1961, a young girl is in love with her cousin, and her old-fashioned father is angry and sends her to a sanatorium for women on an isolated island. This sanatorium is more like a correctional institution, and there are only two reasons for a girl to stay, either the adults think she’s crazy or the adults think she’s slutty.

The fourth part of the series, in the style of change, a bit of Bengeist to socialist gorgeous turn of feeling. For example, this sanatorium instantly reminded me of the work study school and the current Internet addiction center that I had heard about as a child. Many children’s illnesses are really just adults who think they are sick, and then they are sick for life.

And the nursing home faith firm doctor reminds me of the eighties and nineties, active in the vast majority of China’s rural front line of the main focus on birth control village cadres. The oxymoron of the socialists is that whether in the strange northern Europe, or the island next door, we can see the shadow of our side.

To this day, a team of engineers discovered a horrific crime scene while renovating an old house. Karl and Asad arrived to see extremely horrific images of three dried bodies, gutted, sitting around a table with horrible expressions. They were identified by the police as the girl who stayed in the sanatorium, her roommate and an unrelated lawyer, while the owner of the house was a female nurse of the sanatorium.

Karl and Asad solve the entire series, the largest time span, the most thrilling process of unsolved cases began.

This series because of the adaptation of mature novels, so the script seems very solid, the style belongs to the more old-school retro style of deduction. Not rely on the bloody and perverted case to attract attention, but also not too much can be false reversal of the brain, the Nordic unique stereotypes and calm is quite attractive.

The final chapter ends with Carl and Asad holding each other’s hands, which is what I like. Nowadays, there are fewer and fewer movies with only friendship between two big, hard men, and there is no gay love between them, and it would be a ghost if the British production did not spark. Between men and men, the deep friendship is another touching emotion other than gay love.

As I said before, the level of this series is very stable, watchable, of course, can not be compared with the “Silence of the Lambs” “seven deadly sins” and other classics, in recent years in the same type of film belongs to the upper works. In recent years, like the “invisible guests” such a first-class suspense film seems to be not too much, to the last “64 medical records” in the last three years of similar films to squeeze into the top ten chances or quite large, have seen too few friends, a bit of a pity recommended to everyone.
