On The Jacket :

On a cold Monday morning before school begins, two children make a gruesome discovery. Hanging from the rooftop of the gymnasium are the bodies of five naked and heavily disfigured men. Detective Chief Superintendent Konrad Simonsen and his team from the murder squad in Copenhagen are called in to investigate this horrific case-the men hung in a geometric pattern ;the scene so closely resembling a public execution.

When the identities of the five victims and the disturbing link between them is leaked to the press, the sinister motivation behind the killings quickly becomes apparent to the police. Up against a building Internet campaign and even members of his own team, Simonsen finds that he must battle public opinion and vigilante groups in his mission to catch the killers.

Quick Review :

Unfortunately, The Hanging is Dry and Boring.

Full Review :

Simonsen has to cut short his vacation trip with his Daughter and report on duty for this mysterious homicide taken place at a school; five naked bodies are found in the gymnasium. He is given full authority to work and lead the team his way. While investigating the crime scene, the police finds a geometric pattern in which the execution has taken place. The team works out every minute detail that can help them solve this case early. Media and Govt ‘s interest in this case doesn’t help much.

The Hanging has the same basic plot of murders, Detectives, chase, mystery solving, etc., just like any other crime thriller. But, unfortunately The Hanging failed to match my expectations. It proved to be a total waste of time.
