- Rather angsty homicide investigator (Carl Mørck) is shot on the job and two of his colleagues are killed / wounded
- Goes on tilt and is ordered off the job to work in a new department "Q" which is responsible for reviewing then closing old cases
- Grunt work, but he and the other officer (Assad) assigned to the department start to investigate the disappearance of a a well-known female politician, Merete Lynggaard, several years previously
- Her disappearance was ruled a suicide, but is she actually dead?

The book the movie was based off is called "Kvinden i Buret" (which if you Google the translation gives a spoiler about the plot).
