Review

That mainstay of Scandi drama Lars Mikkelsen (The Killing, Borgen et al) heads the cast as Danish detective Harald Bjorn in this briskly efficient Euro crime thriller. After three prostitutes are murdered in an identical manner on consecutive days in Copenhagen, Berlin and Antwerp, Bjorn is partnered with fiery Belgian investigator Alicia Verbeek (Veerle Baetens, whom you may recognise from Cordon) and German superintendent Jackie Müller (Jasmin Gerat), with whom Harald seems to have some kind of history.

As the team picks over the separate crime scenes trying to find a connection between the dead women, it appears there’s something corrupt at the heart of the Belgian investigation. And who is the mysterious bearded man we see meeting each of the murdered women?

The compelling Mikkelsen as the compassionate Bjorn lifts what is a decent policier with a few sly twists.
