The first teaser trailer for ‘Journal 64’ has landed

The first teaser trailer for The Purity of Vengeance (Danish title: Journal 64) has been released, and boy is it creepy.

The Purity of Vengeance is the final instalment in the hit ‘Department Q’ series of films, which are adapted from the hit novel series by Jussi Alder-Olsen. The series star Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Fares Fares as Carl Mørk and Assad, two detectives who look into cold cases in Denmark.

In The Purity of Vengeance, Carl and Assad investigate a series of disappearances that occurred in 1987. Here’s the synopsis:

In an older apartment in Copenhagen, some craftsmen make a scary discovery: behind a fake wall they find three mummified bodies sitting around a dining table with a free space ready. Carl Mørck and Assad from Department Q now have to find out who the mummies are and for whom the fourth place is intended. They soon discover that the previous inhabitants of the apartment trace back to an infamous women’s hospital at Sprogø island, where attempts at forced sterilization were a regular part of the daily lives of the women who were brought to the hospital. The horror at the hospital is an overdue chapter in the history of Denmark, but there are people who say that the experiments are still up in our time. Carl and Assad start a race with time to prevent new murders and assaults.

The Purity of Vengeance is directed by acclaimed Danish art director Christoffer Boe and co-stars Nicolas BroElliott Crosset Hove and Anders Hove. It will be released in Denmark this October.
