Lau Lauritzen Sr., Denmark, 1929

97 min.DK/FeatureComedy, Crime filmSilent films

The long arm of the law is utterly powerless against the unusually cunning criminal Terry and his gang. Master detective Sherlock Holmes is on the case, but he might need some assistance. Pat and Patachon, who deals magazines in a small kiosk, get involved in the case by accident and ironically solves it by accident as well. The truth is right in front of their noses – but how long will it take the detectives to figure it out?
