And action...

”When the storyline is complete and the fundamental legwork is done. When gifted directors, sublime actors and thorough hands behind the camera come together - this is what happens!”

Dicte

Dicte lives in Aarhus working as a reporter – a job that constantly brings her close to new crimes. She hunts clarity and balance in her personal life and with the help of homicide detective Wagner, she seeks justice in the world she experiences through her work.

 

Synopsis

Dicte Svendsen and her daughter Rose move to a new city in an effort to turn a new page following Dicte’s divorce from Rose’s father, Torsten. But their new home, Aarhus, is full of the ghosts of the past. Dicte is particularly plagued by memories of growing up as a Jehova’s Witness in the city and of the son she gave up for adoption as a young woman. She ran away from home soon after and hasn’t seen her parents since. But Dicte also has a lot of good things going for her in Aarhus. Her two girlfriends, Anne and Ida-Marie, give her a very warm welcome and there’s a desk ready and waiting for her at the newspaper Dagbladet. Her photographer colleague Bo is also stunningly charming, which is definitely a bonus.

The job of crime reporter is Dicte’s life, and she never gives up, before the story is fully told. This persistence immediately annoys police investigator, John Wagner, especially since Dicte’s methods are ones he won’t and can’t employ – methods he often doesn’t even have the imagination to come up with. Tempers flare as the two butt heads across the caution tape, but Dicte prevails, either because she simply charges past Wagner without asking permission, or because she has information he desperately needs in order to solve the case.

Dicte’s daughter, Rose, misses her friends in Copenhagen and finds herself feeling lonely. Luckily, her father visits often. A little too often for Dicte’s liking, seeing as she just moved across the country to get away from him. When Rose finds a boyfriend, Darko, things begin to look up. But only momentarily. Soon, Darko’s name starts to appear on Dicte’s notepad in an unpleasant case. In general, Dicte’s stories often take a personal turn, and one by one, they lead her to the truth about the most important story of them all – her own.
