A #1 International Best-Seller
Over 16 million copies sold
Winner of the Glass Key award

Jussi Adler-Olsen returns with his most captivating and suspenseful novel yet.

In a Copenhagen park, the body of an elderly woman is discovered. Though the case bears a striking resemblance to another unsolved homicide from over a decade ago, the police cannot find any connection between the two victims. Across town, a group of young women are being hunted down. The attacks seem random, but could these brutal acts of violence be related? Detective Carl Mørck of Department Q is charged with solving the mystery.

Back at headquarters, Carl and his team are under pressure to deliver results: failure to meet his superiors' expectations will mean the end of Department Q. Solving the case, however, is not their only concern. After a breakdown, their colleague Rose is struggling to deal with the ghosts of her past - a past seemingly connected to one of the division's most sinister case-files. It is up to Carl, Assad and Gordon to unearth the dark and violent truth plaguing Rose before it is too late.

Translated by William Frost

Perfect for fans of Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo.

How a great narrator can ruin a good book

Adler Olsen is second in his extravagance only to Stieg Larsson and David Lagercrantz in the Nordic Noir genre - and that is by no means a bad thing. Saul Reichlin is a great narrator - for Rudyard Kipling, Henry Rider Haggard and other great adventure writers.
But assigning him to narrate a Nordic Noir book ruined the book for me. Nordic Noir is compact, dense, minor in tone - exactly the opposite of Reichlin's dramatic style. Assad's accent sounds like an Englishman's poor imitation of an Indian an the turn of the 20th century.
Disservice to Reichlin's skills, complete disaster to Adler Olsen's book.

Destroyd by Narrator

Olsens books are among the best. Usually witty and gripping. So sad not beeing able to listen to this story due to the narrator .

Can't believe I finished it.

Dialogue between female characters is laughable. Narrator's characterizations are unconvincing. Story telling unrealistic. I kept thinking "You're kidding! You expect me to swallow this?"

Another great Department Q novel

Jussi Adler-Olsen does it again. If you are new to Carl, Assad and Rose of Department Q start with the first book. You'll be hooked.
I hope Olsen will continue the series.

Bisher das schlechteste Buch aus dieser Reihe

Department Q und das Team dort gehörten immer zu meinen Favoriten und die ersten 3 Bücher waren von hohem Niveau, spannend und humorvoll zugleich. Beim Vorgänger von The scarred Woman machte der Verlag dann den Fehler das Buch nicht von Saul Reichlin lesen zu lassen, was mich vom Kauf abhielt. Vielleicht hätte ich da schon den langsamen Niedergang bemerkt.
Die Figuren um den Chef von Department Q, Karl, sind vertraut, doch stehen sie diesmal stärker im Fokus der Geschichte, als der Fall selbst, der jetzt auch nicht gerade die Geschichte des Jahres ist. Wie gesagt, alle anderen Fälle vorher waren raffinierter in Art und Ausführung. Diesmal ist es eher ein Gemetzel, mühsam von einer schwachen Story zusammen gehalten.
Das Rose und ihr mentaler Totalausfall samt ihrer Vergangenheit fast die Hälfte der Geschichte verbrauchen, macht es manchmal schwer dabei zu bleiben, durchzuhalten.
Selbst Saul Reichlin konnte dieses Buch nicht retten - schade.
