A police officer is demoted to deskwork and answers a phone call from a kidnapped woman. Confined to the police station, the search to find the missing woman will take all his intuition and skill, as his own personal demons conspire against him.

MUBI's take

Inspired by the podcast Serial, this debut feature from Gustav Möller is a nerve-wracking police thriller set within the confines of one room. Equal parts psychological portrait and shocking mystery, The Guilty’s ingenious screenplay gives rise to an enthralling performance by Jakob Cedergren.
