About The Guilty 💬

When police officer Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren) is demoted to desk work, he expects a sleepy beat as an emergency dispatcher. That all changes when he answers a panicked phone call from a kidnapped woman who then disconnects abruptly. Asger, confined to the police station, is forced to use others as his eyes and ears as the severity of the crime slowly becomes more clear. The search to find the missing woman and her assailant will take every bit of his intuition and skill, as a ticking clock and his own personal demons conspire against him. This innovative and unrelenting Danish thriller uses a single location to great effect, ratcheting up the tension as twists pile up and secrets are revealed. Director Gustav Möller expertly frames the increasingly messy proceedings against the clean Scandinavian sterility of the police department, while Cedergren's strong performance anchors the film and places the audience squarely in Holm's tragically flawed yet well-intentioned mind space.

"It's your own fault, isn't it?"


I believe that the strongest images in film, the ones that stay with you the longest; they are the ones, you don't see.

I got the idea for the film when I stumbled across a real-life 911 call from a kidnapped woman. The woman was traveling by car, and since she was sitting next to her kidnapper she was speaking in codes. At first, I was just gripped by the suspense of the call, as any listener would. But then I started reflecting on what made it so intriguing. Even though I had just listened to a sound recording it felt like I had seen images. I had seen the woman, the car she was in, the road the car was on, and even the kidnapper sitting next to her. I realized, that every single person listening to that phone call would see different images: a different woman, a different kidnapper, and so on.

I started thinking: What if you used this idea of mental imagery, in the film? My vision with making THE GUILTY has been to make a suspenseful and character-driven thriller, but more than that to make a film that gives every single audience member a completely unique experience.
