The third opus follows detective Carl Mørck and his assistant, Assad, as they get pulled into a horrific case involving a psychopathic murderer, religious fanaticism and abducted siblings never reported missing by their parents.

TrustNordisk has already sold the movie in more than 60 countries including North America (IFC Films), Germany and Austria (NFP), Switzerland (Frenetic Films), Benelux (Lumiere), France (Wild Bunch Distribution), Spain (Vertigo Films), Turkey (Medyavizyon), Estonia (Estin Film), Poland (Kino Swiat) and Russia CIS (Russian Report).

The Scandinavian cast is headlined by Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Fares Fares, as well as Jakob Oftebro (“Kon-Tiki”) and Pål Sverre Hagen (“Ragnarok”).

“Conspiracy of Faith” marked the first collaboration between Detailfilm and Zentropa Hamburg.
