A confident Nordic noir, which follows a pair of upper class students as they are implicated in the murder of young twins. It's the second film in the Department Q franchise (following on from 2013's The Keeper of Lost Causes), and performances are strong across the board. It finds a certain majesty in the murk, and while it is unashamedly derivative, it remains a class act regardless.
