The Last Client is an ambitious and suspenseful Nordic Noir that elegantly and effectively captures its audience with an intense drama between a psychotherapist and her dangerous new client. Is she able to fix him within the single hour he grants her? If not, she will pay the ultimate price. For every grain of sand that passes through the hourglass, the spider spins its web and it dawns on her that she is facing a very dangerous man.

Anders Klarlund’s first feature film was The Eighteenth (1996), which follows three independent characters during the riots in Copenhagen in the wake of the EU referendum on 18 May 1993. He then directed several episodes of the TV series Taxi (1997-99), and his next feature film, the occult thriller Possessed, premiered in 1999. The ambitious puppet film Strings (2003) has won several awards, including the Spanish critics’ Citizen Kane Award and the Silver-Méliès for best fantasy film at the Finnish festival Espoo Ciné. Klarlund’s satirical How We Get Rid of the Others has also won awards, i.a. for Best Film at the Festival de Cine Fantastico in Bilbao.

Kazinski has had eight bestselling novels published by one of Denmark’s biggest publishing houses, Politikens Forlag, since 2010.

Kazinski’s novel (in collaboration with Thomas Rydahl) The Death of A Mermaid has been sold to Mastiff Productions, who are developing it into a TV series and their Loving Adults will be made into the first Danish Netflix original film, slated to premiere early 2022.

On producing The Last Client he states:

“Anders Rønnow Klarlund and Jacob Weinreich have managed to create a strong foundation for a gripping psychological thriller with great potential. It is a genre that the two authors know in-depth, not least due to their many book publications under the pseudonyms A.J. Kazinski. Books that are not only popular in Denmark, but also have large sales figures around Europe and the rest of the world.”
