A considerable contrast

between Carl Morck as we see him in the Department Q novels and the same detective as we see him in the Danish TV movies made from some of them.

He is in both presentations a socially inept nihilist very good and dogged at the job.

But the author, Jussi Adler-Olsen, mocks his leading character and makes him a selfish, clownish boor.

Fortunately, none of that comes through in the films.

Reading The Hanging Girl, 2015.
