19 Red Roses (Danish: Nitten røde roser) is a 1974 Danish crime film directed by Esben Høilund Carlsen and starring Henning Jensen.


The film follows Detective Ancher (Poul Reichhardt) and his team as they investigate a series of murders that happened over a period of days. Seemingly unrelated at first, the investigators soon deduce that the killings are connected and stem from an incident that associates of the victims were all involved in.



The film was followed with a sequel, Terror, in 1977. All of the major characters returned for this follow-up.
