The fourth case for Inspector Carl Mørck: Verachtung is the nerve-jangling film version of Jussi Adler-Olsen's best-selling thriller. It's a bizarre picture that meets the eye of Inspector Carl Mørck of Special Department Q: three mummified corpses sitting at a dining table laid out for a meal - and the fourth seat is empty. Initial enquiries lead him to the case of a prostitute who mysteriously disappeared in 1987. But the trail goes further, back to the 1950s, and eventually leads Mørck to a small island home to an institution with a dark past.
