SHADOW OF THE PAST

SHADOW OF THE PAST

The theatrical feature film that completes the 10 episodes of the TV-series Those Who Kill.

Thomas Schaeffer has got back together with his ex-wife, and has come to realize that all consuming absorption in his work precludes a happy family life. Much to Katrine Ries Jensen’s chagrin, he resigns from the police in order to take up his former post at the University.

But as his final day approaches, a violent case from his past crops up. As a young psychologist, he failed to commit a patient with war trauma who was manically drawing details of brutal murders, accidents and other incidents again and again. When these bloody scenes resurface, enacted as real killings, Thomas is compelled to pursue the case to the end of the line. And it unfolds in a far more violent way than he could possibly have imagined…
