Danish director Mads Brügger and Swedish private investigator Göran Björkdahl are trying to solve the mysterious death of Dag Hammarskjöld. As their investigation closes in, they discover a crime far worse than killing the Secretary-General of the United Nations.Written by
Mystery, murder, conspiracy; Cold Case Hammarskjöld has it all. It will draw you to the edge of the seat, make your jaw drop and most likely leave you in awe at the end of the film. If we accept that the goal of this documentary is to call attention to the matters discussed and portrayed in this documentary, then indeed it fulfills its purpose outstandingly. If however it is to be taken as a 'mystery solved documentary', like in the case of The Thin Blue Line (Morris, 1988) , then it fails miserably. Luckily the latter, in my opinion, does not seem to be the case. Therefore I can highly recommend watching this thriller of a documentary. Hopefully the story will receive a part two, because it needs one.
