She scratches at the walls until her fingers bleed. But there is no escape. She doesn't know how long she's been there. She vows not to go mad. She would rather die.
Copenhagen detective Carl Mørck has been taken off homicide to run a newly created department for unsolved crimes. His first case concerns politician Merete Lynggaard, who vanished five years ago.
Everyone says she's dead. Everyone says it's a waste of time. He thinks they're right.
But she isn't dead . . . yet.
Can they save her in time?

Splendid read - pity about the proofreader!
I couldn't stop reading this. It's up there with the Wallander and Blomqvist novels. The only gripe I have is the large number of mistakes, misprints, typos or whatever which surely can't have been in the original. I'm not totally convinced by the translation; the Stieg Larsson trilogy is so well done, perhaps I was spoilt! I'm still going to get the next one, though.
Awesome again, what a story, absorbing and addictive...characters great again and the addition of Rose is a master stroke!
A great story, unusual plot line and believable characters. I really enjoyed this book and am so pleased to have discovered this author. As the race at the end is set in play you will find it hard to put the book down.
