Popular Danish comedian Buster Larsen (Jeppe på Bjerget) made an unforgettable impression as a morgue attendant who discovers a casket containing an extra body in this well made, stylish thriller. The discovery turns Larsen's pathetic and overlooked little worker into a blackmailer who is soon in danger of becoming yet another "parallel corpse." An actor often taken too much for granted, Larsen is eerily well cast in this stylish film, which in many ways brought the Danish movie industry into a new era of less folksy, more hard-hitting crime dramas.
