Descrição da editora
The New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author of The Keeper of Lost Causes delivers his most captivating and suspenseful Department Q novel yet—perfect for fans of Stieg Larsson.
Detective Carl Mørck of Department Q, Copenhagen's cold cases division, meets his toughest challenge yet when the dark, troubled past of one of his own team members collides with a sinister unsolved murder.
In a Copenhagen park the body of an elderly woman is discovered. The case bears a striking resemblance to another unsolved homicide investigation from over a decade ago, but the connection between the two victims confounds the police. Across town a group of young women are being hunted. The attacks seem random, but could these brutal acts of violence be related? Detective Carl Mørck of Department Q is charged with solving the mystery.
Back at headquarters, Carl and his team are under pressure to deliver results: failure to meet his superiors’ expectations will mean the end of Department Q. Solving the case, however, is not their only concern. After an earlier breakdown, their colleague Rose is still struggling to deal with the reemergence of her past—a past in which a terrible crime may have been committed. It is up to Carl, Assad, and Gordon to uncover the dark and violent truth at the heart of Rose’s childhood before it is too late.
Scottish actor Malcolm returns to ably narrate the latest installment of the Department Q series by bestselling Danish crime novelist Adler-Olsen. The series stars Carl M rck, the cantankerous middle-age head of Copenhagen's Department Q, a neglected cold-case division housed in the basement of police headquarters. As the book opens, M rck and his team are investigating several unpromising and seemingly unrelated cases, which turn out to be linked. They're also facing budget cuts, bureaucratic rivalries, and the disappearance of a mentally ill colleague. The book's many subplots keep the listener attuned, and the resolutions are satisfying. Malcolm is an excellent stand-in for M rck in both tone and temperament, and he also skillfully represents the book's other characters, many of whom are young women. He's called upon to employ a range of accents, including German and Icelandic, and rises to the challenge. This seventh outing for M rck will delight Adler-Olsen's many fans, and Malcolm once again delivers as narrator. A Dutton hardcover.
