Review

james patterson and liza marklund’s first-class-selling 2010 mystery novel “the postcard killers” blended patterson’s page-turner instincts with marklund’s moody scandinavian spin on a serial killer thriller. the mediocre film version is referred to as “the postcard killings” — a retitling as clumsy because the film itself.

oscar-prevailing “no guy’s land” director danis tanović places an art house gloss on the lurid tale of a the big apple cop named jacob kanon (jeffrey dean morgan), who’s looking to hunt down the person or men and women who killed his daughter in london. with the assist of investigative journalist dessie leonard (cush jumbo) and a few fellow lawmen, jacob uncovers a pattern of macabre murders, every preceded through the appearance of a mysterious postcard.

the thriller factors of “the postcard killings” don’t hold a whole lot suspense. as soon as the hero and his allies zero in on a suspect, their primary assignment is to analyze greater approximately the killer’s background and decipher the clues to the next strike. regardless of tanović’s efforts to depict these crimes and their aftermath as aestheticized abstractions, there’s something depressingly mundane approximately the manner the murders and the research play out.

ever considering the fact that “the silence of the lambs” turned an elaborately grisly serial killer plot into an award-prevailing mega-hit, movie theaters and television monitors alike have been packed with colorful predators and their tortured trackers, trapped in a bloody game of cat and mouse. it takes a lot to make these memories sense new. “the postcard killings” — awkwardly pitched between serious art and pulp trash — doesn’t do nearly enough.
