Publisher Description

A teenaged boy on the run propels Detective Carl Mørck into Department Q’s most sinister case yet in the fifth novel in Jussi Adler-Olsen's New York Times bestselling series.
 
Fifteen-year-old Marco Jameson longs to become a Danish citizen and go to school like a normal teenager. Unfortunately, his Uncle Zola forces the children of their former gypsy clan to beg and steal for his personal gain. When Marco discovers a dead body that proves the true extent of Zola’s criminal activities, he goes on the run. But it turns out his family members aren’t the only ones who want to keep Marco silent...forever.
 
Detective Carl Mørck wants to save the boy, but Marco’s trail leads him to a case that extends from Denmark to Africa, from embezzlers to child soldiers, from seemingly petty crime rings to the very darkest of cover-ups.

Jessy's Shameless ,

Jussi Adler-Olsen

This author is amazing. The Department Q series is one of my favorite series. I love the characters, especially Assad. His character cracks me up and I find myself listening to a fictional voice made up in my mind when I read the things that he says. Super hilarious (I'm sorry I know this might be wrong) I'm jumping right into the next book, I can't wait.
“Just remember the story about the camel who thought he was an ostrich but got sand in his eyes when he was frightened and stuck his head into the dunes.”
