The streaming giant has secured the rights to adapt the popular Danish novel Department Q, into a gripping series that promises to deliver edge-of-your-seat suspense and drama.
The Danish series on Netflix, including the critically acclaimed crime drama “The Killing” and the quirky comedy-drama “Rita,” have proven to be hit with audiences. With a history of success with the Danish series, it’s no surprise that Netflix has developed Department Q, which has been developing since 2014.

Though his colleagues mock him, Carl becomes obsessed with one case: a liberal politician who went missing five years ago and is presumed dead, but Carl believes she may still be alive.
