Publisher Description

Detective Carl Mørck and his colleagues Assad and Rose must use all of their resources to uncover the horrifying truth in this heart-pounding Nordic thriller from the #1 international bestselling author Jussi Adler-Olsen.

Carl Mørck holds in his hands a bottle that contains old and decayed message, written in blood. It is a cry for help from two young brothers, tied and bound in a boathouse by the sea. Could it be real? Who are these boys, and why weren’t they reported missing? Could they possibly still be alive?

Carl’s investigation will force him to cross paths with a woman stuck in a desperate marriage—her husband refuses to tell her where he goes, what he does, how long he will be away. For days on end she waits, and when he returns she must endure his wants, his moods, his threats. But enough is enough. She will find out the truth, no matter the cost to her husband—or to herself...

Good - not great, but still worth reading

a bit disappointing after the first two installments that were just a lot more fast paced and had an even darker plot. Still great characters and good story - but what the heck did the arson side story do in there?

Longhorn5555 ,

Well written, but...

... this has to be the world’s dumbest policeman... he can’t figure out basic clues, he seems unfamiliar with the concept of backup, and he is always puzzled to realize that he has forgotten his service pistol (yet again) while heading out to face a killer ... he is basically a total moron...

Still not a bad read, though.
