Kimmie, a homeless woman with secrets involving certain powerful individuals, could hold the key—if Mørck can track her down before they do...

The Absent One

Well written mystery with a lovable, funny detective who defuses horror with his sense of humor. He is brilliant at understanding a person’s moral and character traits - e.g., within minutes of his interview with the sociopath in Spain he knew he was rotten to the core. Of course, the gang of monsters were in a whole special league of depravity brought on by drugs and years of entitlement or extreme abuse and negligence. I had to skip over parts that were simply too difficult to read. Their cruelty to humans and animals was just too much to even read about. If I ever needed a detective, I would want Carl on the case - brilliant, modest, honest, and a heart of gold! Great friend, stepfather, and boss, too!! Assad and Rose are also great characters!
