Unique opportunity: PREMIERE of “The Hanging Girl” with English subtitles based on the series by Jussi Adler-Olsen

Living in Denmark means Danish movies in Danish without the option for non-Danish speakers to enjoy them when they premiere here. Your Danish Life and The Copenhagen Book have set out to change this by organizing screenings of popular and new movie films with English subtitles.

The article continues below.

Our first EXPAT MOVIE NIGHT EVENING takes place on 23 January with the premiere of the newest crime series movie “The Hanging Girl” at MovieHouse Hellerup with English subtitles.

The movie is based on the internationally popular crime series by Jussi Adler-Olsen about Department Q and the Deputy Criminal Commissioner, Carl Mørck, a somewhat gloomy hero figure with a large amount of emotional baggage, who together with his colleague, Hafez el-Assad, and secretary, Rose Knudsen, make up ‘Department Q’.

The internationally acclaimed and award-winning Danish crime series writer, Jussi Adler-Olsen (B. 1959), has been published in over 40 languages and is a household name to all readers loving the thrill and suspense that unfolds in his books.

In the series about Department Q he uses several refined literary techniques in his creepy storytelling and character building.

The plot and exhilarating mystery in “The Hanging Girl” (Den Grænseløse in Danish) takes place on the Danish sunshine island of Bornholm and the movie holds beautiful scenery from the rocky island in the Baltic Sea.

About the plot:

In the middle of his usual hard-won morning nap in the basement of police headquarters, Carl Mørck, head of Department Q, receives a call from a colleague working on Bornholm.

Carl is dismissive when he realizes that a new case is being foisted on him, but a few hours later, he receives some shocking news that leaves his headstrong assistant Rose more furious than usual.

Carl has no choice but to lead Department Q into the tragic cold case of a vivacious seventeen-year-old girl who vanished from school, only to be found dead hanging high up in a tree.

The investigation will take them from Bornholm to a strange sun-worshipping cult, where Carl, Assad, Rose, and newcomer Gordon attempt to stop a string of new murders and a skilled manipulator who refuses to let anything—or anyone—get in the way.

Throughout the investigation, encountering uncompromising alternative environments, Rose, Assad, Carl and Gordon are challenged in all sorts of ways while old cases and secrets threaten to topple the foursome.

The evening starts at 18:30 with a drink and light snack followed by the two-hour movie. Priced at DKK 195 for movie, drink and snack we have done our utmost to ensure an enjoyable evening for our readers.
