Inhalt (des Romans): Der Titelheld David verbringt nach dem frühen Tod des Vaters und dem der Mutter, die von seinem Stiefvater Murdstone und dessen herrschsüchtiger Schwester Jane allmählich zu Tode gequält wird, einige Zeit in der Schule des brutalen Mr. Creakle. Bereits mit zehn Jahren wird er zur Arbeit in die Fabrik Murdstones geschickt. Den unerträglichen Bedingungen entzieht er sich durch Flucht zu seiner Tante Betsey Trotwood nach Dover, die ihm den Besuch der reformpädagogischen Schule des Dr. Strong in Canterbury ermöglicht. Bei dem Londoner Advokaten Wickfield findet er schließlich herzliche Aufnahme. Nun beginnt Davids beruflicher Aufstieg vom Lehrling bei der Anwaltsfirma Spenlow und Jorkins hin zum Parlamentsreporter und Schriftsteller. Zahlreiche Nebenhandlungen sind in diese Handlung eingewoben. So entführt der adelige James Steerforth, die Verkörperung des Hochmuts höherer Klassen, die Adoptivtochter des Fischers Pegotty, Emilie. Der Verlobte Emilies, Ham, verfolgt die beiden und entdeckt die mittlerweile von dem Entführer Verlassene. Bei dem selbstlosen Versuch, Steerforth vor dem Ertrinken zu retten, ertrinkt Ham selbst. Eine weitere Nebenhandlung befasst sich mit dem Erzschurken Uriah Heep, Wickfields Angestelltem, der gegen seinen Arbeitgeber intrigiert und von Mr. Miccawber entlarvt wird, mit dem David eine enge Freundschaft verbindet. David verliebt sich in die kindliche Tochter seines Arbeitgebers Mr. Spenlow. Nach deren Tod findet David, inzwischen ein erfolgreicher Schriftsteller, die wirkliche Erfüllung in der Ehe mit seiner Jugendfreundin Agnes Wickfield

An ex-cop living in Cairo, is called to his old beat somewhere in northern Europe to catch a serial killer. He returns to find Osborne his old mentor and author of police procedure manual -- "The element of Crime"--A broken man. The old man and his book have been declared outdated and too theoretoical for the new era of police work. Fisher believes in his old friend's wisdom and begins to track the killer by using the book's old methods -- which lead him into some dark and rather surreal psychological predicaments. Full of references to Hitchcock and other noir classics, von Trier also established a style reminiscent of the German expressionist era.
