“Fast-paced and highly polished” (Variety) — on December 8, see the fourth film in the gripping Department Q Danish crime series, The Purity of Vengeance (dir. Christoffer Boe; Denmark, 2018) in New Nordic Cinema at Scandinavia House!

Based on Jussi Adler-Olsen’s international bestsellers, the riveting Department Q series follows maverick detective Carl Mørck (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) who, with his partner Assad (Fares Fares) and secretary Rose (Johanne Louise Schmidt), digs into shocking unsolved mysteries in cold cases. The Purity of Vengeance begins with a terrifying discovery made by construction workers in an old Copenhagen apartment: three mummified corpses sitting around a dinner table, with one open seat, behind a fake wall. When Detective Mørck and Assad search for the apartment’s owner, they discover clues leading back to an infamous women’s institution on Sprogø, where neglect and medicinal experiments of forced sterilization were inflicted upon the so-called immoral girls placed there. Though the horrors on Sprogø are believed to be a finished chapter in Danish history, others say that the experiments continue at the facility — leading Carl and Assad on a race with time to prevent more murders and assaults. (117 min. In Danish with English subtitles.)

Film screenings will take place as a 3 PM matinee and 7 PM evening showing. Tickets to this event must be purchased in advance online at the link; film screenings will take place in Victor Borge Hall.
