Féll þessi bók vel í geð. Skemmtilegar persónur með gersamlega óþolandi samskipti sín á milli. Siðspilltir valdamikilir auðjöfrar kynntir sem hópur glæpona sem rannsóknarhópurinn í deild Q reynir að tengja við 20 ára gömul morð. Til hliðar við þessa aðila er þó geðveik útigangskona sem reynist hafa verið nátengd bófunum og er eina persónan sem þeir skelfast.
Flott plott og spennandi saga. ( )

A good follow up book to the beginning of the series. New character (to hate?) Rose. Great character development. I MUST READ THE NEXT ONE. ( )

In 1987 worden de verminkte lichamen van een broer en zus gevonden in een zomerhuisje in de buurt van Rørvig, in Noord-Seeland. Uit het politieonderzoek blijkt dat de dader gezocht moet worden binnen een groep van kostschoolleerlingen die uit de rijkste kringen van het land afkomstig zijn. Er is echter niet genoeg bewijs en de zaak verdwijnt in de doofpot, totdat een van de verdachten zichzelf aangeeft. Daarmee lijkt het mysterie opgelost. Een aantal jaren later belandt het onderzoek op het bureau van brigadier Mørck, hoofd van de afdeling ‘onopgeloste zaken’ Q. Hij denkt dat het er per ongeluk is terechtgekomen, maar al snel blijkt dit niet het geval te zijn. Hij realiseert zich dat er iets heel erg fout is gegaan... Samen met zijn assistent Assad begint hij een onderzoek dat hen in aanraking brengt met alle lagen van de maatschappij. Van de armste mensen die op straat leven tot de machtigste mensen van het land; de klopjacht is begonnen.

Even though I enjoyed getting to know Mørck and Assad better the nasty nature of the vile acts committed by the perpetrators combining sex and violence was very unsavoury and far nastier than what I'm used to reading. I also had believability problems with an investigation being lead by theory rather than evidence, the need for Kimmie to blowup her rail side home and the absence of calling for backup in the final scene. Not the best of Nordic noir but I may yet read further in this series. ( )

Morck is investigating a cold case that involves the double murder of a brother and sister. It also book involves a gang (or better yet, a cabal) of several men and one women who went to a private school together. While they were there, they learned that, because of the riches and political power of their families, there were almost untouchable. They soon became corrupt and continued to be so well into their adulthood. They also continued to support each other in their various illegal activities.

We follow Morck as he sniffs around the double murder which is, of course, he solves by not exactly following the rules of the police department. He also is given a secretary, Rose, to help him with his work. He protests but is told he has to accept her which he does with his usual lack of grace. The interactions between Morck, Rose and Hafez are hilarious.

Another fun read from Jussi Adler-Olsen. ( )

Book description
In 1987 worden de verminkte lichamen van een broer en zus gevonden in een zomerhuisje in de buurt van Rørvig, in Noord-Seeland. Uit het politieonderzoek blijkt dat de dader gezocht moet worden binnen een groep van kostschoolleerlingen die uit de rijkste kringen van het land afkomstig zijn. Er is echter niet genoeg bewijs en de zaak verdwijnt in de doofpot, totdat een van de verdachten zichzelf aangeeft. Daarmee lijkt het mysterie opgelost.

Een aantal jaren later belandt het onderzoek op het bureau van brigadier Mørck, hoofd van de afdeling 'onopgeloste zaken' Q. Hij denkt dat het er per ongeluk is terechtgekomen, maar al snel blijkt dit niet het geval te zijn. Hij realiseert zich dat er iets heel erg fout is gegaan... Samen met zijn assistent Assad begint hij een onderzoek dat hen in aanraking brengt met alle lagen van de maatschappij. Van de armste mensen die op straat leven tot de machtigste mensen van het land; de klopjacht is begonnen.

Jussi Adler-Olsens Serie Q-boeken worden stuk voor stuk internationaal enthousiast ontvangen en bereiken allemaal de bestsellerstatus. Deel 1, 2 en 3 verdreven zelfs de Millennium-trilogie van Stieg Larsson van de topdrieposities in Denemarken.
In "The Keeper of Lost Causes, "Jussi Adler-Olsen introduced Detective Carl Morck, a deeply flawed, brilliant detective newly assigned to run Department Q, the home of Copenhagen's coldest cases. The result wasn't what Morck--or readers--expected, but by the opening of Adler-Olsen's shocking, fast-paced follow-up, Morck is satisfied with the notion of picking up long-cold leads. So he's naturally intrigued when a closed case lands on his desk: A brother and sister were brutally murdered two decades earlier, and one of the suspects--part of a group of privileged boarding-school students--confessed and was convicted. But once Morck reopens the files, it becomes clear that all is not what it seems. Looking into the supposedly solved case leads him to Kimmie, a woman living on the streets, stealing to survive. Kimmie has mastered evading the police, but now they aren't the only ones looking for her. Because Kimmie has secrets that certain influential individuals would kill to keep buried . . . as well as one of her own that could turn everything on its head. Every bit as pulse-pounding as the book that launched the series, "The Absent One" delivers further proof that Jussi Adler-Olsen is one of the world's premier thriller writers.
