John Dalli Mystery, The

Synopsis


Mads Brügger and Mikael Bertelsen uncover the plans for the murder of a former EU commissioner in a thrilling and funny detective film, where one twist follows another.

Eight years ago, Brügger and Bertelsen tried to solve the murder of an EU official in 1993. A project that concluded in a dead end. Hoping to make good for their old defeat, the two journalists decide to investigate a complex case about the former EU Health Commissioner, John Dalli, who was fired under suspicion of being in the pocket of the tobacco industry.

Brügger and Bertelsen travel to Malta to meet Dalli, who comes across as quite likeable. And it does not take long before they uncover an extensive conspiracy against him, when Dalli is suddenly contacted by a secret source who claims to be in possession of documents and recordings that contain plans to kill him.
