Storyline
Based on the international bestseller, the riveting first film in the Department Q series introduces maverick detective Carl Mørck (Nikolaj Lie Kaas) who, after majorly botching an assignment, is relegated to reviewing cold cases. With his new partner (Fares Fares), the moody Mørck begins digging into the unsolved disappearance of a high-ranking female politician (Sonja Richter) who supposedly committed suicide but whose body was never recovered--a mystery that plunges the investigators into a dark and disturbing conspiracy. A nonstop series of ingenious twists and shocking surprises keep the suspense simmering in this stylish thriller.

Introduction to DAAC

The Danish American Athletic Club (DAAC) was founded by a group of Danish immigrants in 1922 and is patterned after similar organizations in Denmark.

The objectives for which the DAAC is originally formed is to act as a center for preserving and uphold Danish culture in America through maintaining classes in the Danish language, gymnastics, folk dance and other cultural subjects as required or needed for the purpose of strengthening the bonds between residents of Danish descent in America. The objective is also to further expand the cultural relations with other Scandinavian ethnic groups in the United States and to act as a source of information in academic studies of the cultural impact of Danish immigration to the United States of America. Any person interested in the "objectives" of the DAAC are eligible for membership, but must be sponsored by a member in good standing.

Currently the DAAC offers Danish language classes, gymnastics classes for children and children's folk dance instruction. All classes meet every Monday night from January through to the Exhibition in April.
