Murder and Mystery Abound in The Absent One
On tap right now is the first word on some new horror shivers that will be coming our way soon enough, and if murder, intrigue, and mystery are what's on your menu of the day, you're gonna want to dig into the first details of The Absent One.
According to Variety, Danish thesp Pilou Asbaek (A Hijacking) and Swedish actor David Dencik (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) have joined the cast of Mikkel Norgaard’s dark-edged crimer The Absent One, the sequel to cold-case thriller The Keeper of Lost Causes.
Another gritty cold thriller, Absent follows Copenhagen detective Carl Morck and his partner, Assad, as they investigate the brutal murder of two young twins that dates back to 1994. The case was closed after a local outsider plead guilty, but various clues pointed toward a group of boarding school students. As Morck and Assad advance in their investigation, they come across a discarded emergency call from a desperate girl who is being kept silent by a group of influential men.
Absent is the second installment based on Jussi Adler-Olsen’s best-selling Scandinavian crime series Department Q, which is comprised of four books.
Asbaek and Dencik will star opposite Nikolaj Lie Kaas (Angels & Demons) and Fares Fares (Zero Dark Thirty). Nikolaj Arcel and Rasmus Heisterberg, the writing duo behind Oscar-nominated A Royal Affair and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, penned the script.
Shooting begins on September 23rd for an expected release in fall 2014.
