This was certainly... erm... unusual, sort of a Bladerunner feel.

Even though the real murderer is found, you often suspect the cop is the killer.
He's not your typical man in blue - I guess the future of law enforcement will be quite different from today. No OT, all dialogue is in English. Not really one I can recommend - I may not keep it - but someone who likes very offbeat flicks may like it.
Fisher, an ex-cop, returns to his old beat somewhere in northern Europe after a thirteen-year hiatus in Cairo. His former mentor and role model, author of a treatise called "The Element of Crime", asks him to solve a series of murders involving lottery ticket sellers. Guided by the theories put forth in the book, Fischer retraces the steps of a suspect, Harry Grey, as recorded in a three-year-old police surveillance report.
