Cold Case Hammarskjöld
Regissør: Mads Brügger

Brügger delivers his best film here, about Dag Hammarskjöld.

Damn it ... now I know there is an organization in South Africa called SAIMR, the South African Institute for Maritime Research. A secret lodge that, according to the film, was involved in the assassination of Swedish UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjöld in 1961 – where his plane on his way to Congo crashed under mysterious circumstances. About how and why the Swede, who wanted colonialism to live and met great resistance from whites in southern Africa, died.

About this, Mads Brügger has made a film with Göran Björkdahl, who has studied the Hammarskjöld case most of his adult life. It has almost become an obsession for him. Brügger has worked with Björkdahl for six years in the best journalistic way – og in the best Mads Brügger movie style in which he is in the picture, the white man plays with the tropical hat, who wants to dig up the remains of the airplane but is not allowed, hands-shaking a cigar, is asked by Björkdahl why he shakes his hands , 'You tend to be one cool Lighthouse".

In that, the Swede is right when Brügger self-staged dressed in white as the members of SAIMR – we are told – dictates the film's script to first one then the other black secretary, who not only writes down but also reacts to the information that blacks get injections with AIDS. "Gruesome," he says. . .
