Carl Mørck (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) is disappointed: His long-time partner Hafez el-Assad (Fares Fares), who is also one of the few people Carl absolutely trusts, wants to leave Q Special Forces. In a few days, he'll be starting his new job. And since Carl can't tell him what he really thinks, he simply punishes the colleague with disrespect. Not good conditions to solve a really tricky case: In an apartment a bricked-up room was discovered in which three mummified corpses sit at a laid table. There's a fourth seat available. So the perpetrator still seems to be hunting for his fourth victim. The searches lead the team to an institution on the island of Sprogø, where many years ago psychologically ill and socially unfit women were allegedly imprisoned, abused and finally forcibly sterilized. A terrible story - which still isn't over…
"contempt" is now the fourth film based on the "Sonderdezernat Q" novels by Jussi Adler-Olsen. Beside the first part "Mercy" this thriller based on true events is the best movie of the series so far. What took place behind the walls of the institution on the island of Sprogø is one of the darkest chapters in the history of Denmark. The storyline, which takes place on the island in the 1950s and illuminates the events there, is one of the most intense moments of the series. This is gloomy, disturbing and just makes you angry.
>Shipped this strand is interwoven with the current investigations of Mørck and Assad. Director Christoffer Boe also succeeds very well in developing the well-known characters and their relationship to each other. Especially Mørck is going through a development until the end, which could be good for his character. The private aspects are however rather secondary, because in the center a completely particularly intensive revenge campaign is located, which then also still surprisingly current socio-political traits takes on.
For scarcely two hours "contempt" offers gripping Thriller maintenance of the extra class. Anyone who liked the first three films will also be enthusiastic about this case. However, there is also a small drop of bitterness: in 2020, the next case of Special Department Q is to be released in cinemas, but probably with a new line-up. Ulrich Thomsen and Zaki Youssef will take the helm. Two very good actors - but it's still a pity that Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Fares Fares won't be seen any further than Mørck and Assad. Not least because, but of course also because her farewell performance has become a really good film, it's absolutely worth watching!
