Prankster documentarian Mads Brügger investigates the suspicious 1961 plane crash in Zambia that killed the then-UN Secretary-General in this politically minded real-life mystery.

Intrigued by enduring rumours of foul play in the death of Dag Hammarskjöld, Brügger delves into a web of conspiracy, lies and cover-ups with gonzo aplomb. As his investigations get closer to the dark truth, he reveals hidden worlds and clandestine societies with links to the Apartheid regime and global spy agencies.

Darkly comic with a twist in its tail, this provocative murder mystery provides a chilling snapshot of Europe’s involvement in Africa’s recent political and colonial history.
