The Kingdom: Danish, Imported, Regionless DVD from Hong Kong, Lars von Trier.
There is an archive that contains old medical records. One record can be used as evidence against a Swedish visiting MD. (The Mona Files.)
The archive room has an alarm and requires a keyed code for entry.
Hook's accomplice contacts an engineer and passes on a request from Hook for access to the archive because "the engineer owes Hook a favor" (Blackmail?) Hooks's accomplice finds out from the engineer that at 9:00pm there is a 30 second window where the alarm can be disabled with a simple "Unlock" key and no passcode.
Bulder contacts another engineer and bribes the engineer to give him the password. The engineer states the password is only held by one person who is "security incarnate" and not available. The engineer passes to Bulder the same information that Hook's accomplice received.
Bulder waiting at the archive door untill 9:00pm is approached by Hook's accomplice who uses social engineering to convince Bulder that he is there to find out who has been breaking into the archive at 9:00pm. This scares Bulder away, and allows Hook's accomplice to gain access, but he leaves the door open.
The Swedish Doctor notices the archive door open while passing and gains access to find and destroy the Mona File. (Opportunist.)
Hook's accomplice sneaks out of the archive to notify Hook of the Swedish Dr. in the archives.
Hook enters archive room, far from sight of Swedish Doctor and announces, "Oh, gee. Someone left the door open. That is okay. When we close the door, the alarm will be enabled." (If Swedish Doctor is caught in the archive while under investigation of the Mona case, he would most certainly get fired.)
Ms. Drusse arrives back at the archive door with Bulder. She performed a spiritual ceremony with the woman who was "security incarnate" and convinced the woman to give up the secret passcode so Drusse can get the medical file on the spirit "Mary."
Passcode entered on-screen: 3 1 6 4 8 (though it looks like one extra key was pressed out of view after these just before the unlock key was pressed, but I could be mistaken.)
