In Denmark FLASKEPOST FRA P is this years largest cinema success with more than 700,000 tickets sold. The film has been sold to most of the world (over 70 countries), and the film has now reached the United States, where the first reviews are brought. And the judgment of the film - which in English is called "A Conspiracy of Faith" - is quite good so far, with several really good reviews from some of America's largest newspapers.

The esteemed reviewer Michael Rechtschaffen from The Los Angeles Times says that the film "... is the darkest and most intriguing of the three Jussi Adler-Olsen-screen versions." And after having praised both Nikolaj Lie Kaas and Fares Fares for their performance, the instruction of the movie, screenplay, photography and music, he ends up concluding “Three films in — and with six Department Q novels published so far — this intelligent, rewarding series could easily benefit from further investigation.”

Also in perhaps one of the world's most prestigious newspapers The New York Times we find great reviews from Ken Jaworowski. He calls the film "the darkest in the Department Q series."  And he believes that it stands out from the two previous films, as the film takes place almost entirely in daylight, which according to him makes it even more disturbing. He is particularly enthusiastic about the films ending, which he thinks ends on a perfect note.

In these days FLASKEPOST FRA P has its digital premiere, and from Thursday the 4th of August it will be available on DVD and Bluray. The film has just been nominated for two of the main awards at Svend Prize in 2016, Most Popular Danish Movie of the Year and Best Actor (Nikolaj Lie Kaas). The award ceremony takes place on the 31st of August.
