** PRESENTED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE EMBASSY OF DENMARK **
As he awaits the results of an internal investigation, Danish cop Asger (Jakob Cedergren) is demoted to desk duty at an emergency dispatch centre. When he receives a terrified call from a kidnapped woman, he spots an opportunity to redeem himself and takes matters into his own hands – with unexpected consequences.
Unfolding over a series of phone calls, The Guilty expertly manages to wring tension from what is essentially a one-man show. But don’t let appearances deceive you: this top-notch Danish thriller as riveting and precisely plotted as any Hollywood blockbuster (and will soon become one too, with Jake Gyllenhaal set to star in the forthcoming American remake).
