Publisher Description

Get to know the detective in charge of Copenhagen's coldest cases in the first electrifying Department Q mystery from New York Times bestselling author Jussi Adler-Olsen.

Carl Mørck used to be one of Denmark’s best homicide detectives. Then a hail of bullets destroyed the lives of two fellow cops, and Carl—who didn’t draw his weapon—blames himself. So a promotion is the last thing he expects. But Department Q is a department of one, and Carl’s got only a stack of cold cases for company. His colleagues snicker, but Carl may have the last laugh, because one file keeps nagging at him: a liberal politician vanished five years earlier and is presumed dead. But she isn’t dead...yet.

Darkly humorous, propulsive, and atmospheric, The Keeper of Lost Causes introduces American readers to the mega-bestselling series fast becoming an international sensation.

Excellent; intense

This was a great read. As an American who has never traveled to Scandinavia, it was a little hard to get started with, much in the same way as "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" was - but well worth the investment of time. Great characters; very complex; injured people following through in disturbed and evil ways. Morck and his sidekick were great - I hope to see them again.

Awesome

Love all of the Dept Q stories - great story lines, character, and that touch of human contact and humor - can't out the book down once you get started. I will put Jussi right up there with Jo Nesbo .
