A Conspiracy of Faith (Danish: Flaskepost fra P), also known as Department Q: A Conspiracy of Faith, is a 2016 Danish film, directed by Hans Petter Moland, based on a novel by Jussi Adler-Olsen. It is the third film in the Department Q series, after The Keeper of Lost Causes (2013) and The Absent One (2014).[1][2]


An 8-year-old message in a bottle, written in blood, leads Detective Carl Morck and his assistant Assad to a series of child abductions from religious communities throughout Denmark. The majority of these abductions have not been reported for some reason, and some of them are suspected to have ended in murder.[3]



Ken Jaworowski of the New York Times praised the film's storyline construction, the mood, and the closing scene, 'beautifully blunt, ends it on the perfect note.'[2]
