Watch the trailer for Danish thriller The Keeper of Lost Causes

The Scandinavian movie renaissance just keeps on coming.

We've got our hands on the first trailer for The Keeper of Lost Causes, the acclaimed thriller by the screenwriter of The Girl with the Dragon of Tattoo.

An adaptation of the bestselling Department Q crime novels by Jussi Adler-Olsen, it sees Carl Morck as a disgraced detective reassigned to a basement gig filing cold cases.

When he's teamed up with new assistant Assad, they stumble across a compelling case of a missing politician. Drama, gunfights and scowling inevitably ensues.

The Keeper of Lost Causes is in UK cinemas from 22 August 2014.
