A cunning spin of life-threatening fraud and laundering of millions is among the main ingredients in the new Department Q film, ‘Marco Effect’ – based on Jussi Adler-Olsen’s bestseller of the same name. The cast includes Ulrich Thomsen, Zaki Youssef, Sofie Torp, and Thomas W. Gabrielson.

The fifth novel of Jussi’s world-famous crime series about Department Q is considered one of his most exciting and successful novels with a cunning and well-thought-out plot about human greed and cold cynical corruption. The film takes place in a Copenhagen environment, where hitmen, fraud and lust for money reveal itself when the unorthodox deputy crime commissioner Carl Mørck begins to dig into a closed criminal case. The police catches a young foreign boy on a train with a passport belonging to a missing Danish pedophile man in his pocket. How did it end up there? The boy refuses to speak despite Mørck’s untraditional and brusque interrogation methods. But soon a series of heinous crimes begins to happen. And surprisingly, the tracks lead to the top of the political elite at Christiansborg and deep into the Danish, crisis-stricken financial world.
