Could it be real? Who are these boys, and why weren’t they reported missing? Could they possibly still be alive?Carl’s investigation will force him to cross paths with a woman stuck in a desperate marriage- her husband refuses to tell her where he goe...

  • Jayson
    (B+) 77% | GoodNotes: A clever enough crime, though a book of this length needs livelier, less trivial subplots to tent-pole its saggy middle.

    Man muss dem Buch bzw. meiner Bergwertungen dieses Buches verzeihen, dass es ein Krimi ist und das einfach nicht so sehr mein Genre ist. Dieses Buch befindet sich definitiv außerhalb meiner Lese-Komfort-Zone und dennoch konnte es mich absolut begeistern, aber daher rührt der eine Stern Abzug.Ich mochte damals schon die ersten beiden Bände und mir stand der Sinn nach etwas mit Thrill. Also hab ich mich ohne den Klappentext zu lesen in die Gesch...

    I read this on kindle and had no idea it was 500 pages long until I saw the stats when I came to write the review. I can assure you those 500 pages flew by so fast and I enjoyed every moment of them.This is proving to be such a good series. I like that Carl, the main character, has low points like all fictional detectives, but he also has highs like normal people. He works hard at solving his cases despite the erratic assistance of Assad and Rose...

    This is a terrific mystery series. Well worth the time. The police character studies are what make the books. The day-to-day work life of Carl, Asaad, and Rose are hysterical!The first of the series is still my favorite.

    Book Review:Ok, if you're looking for the 4th in this series...you'll have to wait until end December of this year. And, if you're totally confused as to the actual title of the 4th: look for The Purity of Vengeance. And, if you're looking for a terrible site, go to Penguin.com, where a search for their own author turns up...nothing.The 3rd in the Department Q series does not disappoint. In fact, each installment in this series gets better and be...

    This felt like hard work...Maybe I'm missing something... The book is over 600 pages long. I don't mind long books, however...The actual crime part is probably half of that. The rest seems to be utter nonsense about the various individuals employed by the police and those involved in Carl's life. These digressions into his personal life seem to have no point and certainly little or no relevance to the story overall...I don't know if the Danish ar...
  • Terri Wino
    3-1/2 stars rounded up to 4.Another solid entry in a series whose recurring characters are just as interesting and unusual as the storylines.This book had one of the most diabolical and clever villains that I've ever come across in a realistic setting. Meaning, the crimes he committed are things that could actually happen. This wasn't a superhuman that did fantastical things...which made him all the more chilling because of what he was capable of...
  • Jaksen
    Wonderful mystery.Carl Morck of Department Q, is once again given a cold case to research, and this one is tantalizing from the start. Based on a note in a bottle found in the waters off Scotland, then traced to events in Denmark, it's a chilling story of a serial killer-kidnapper who targets the families belonging to reclusive religious sects. He kidnaps two children, demands a ransom, then kills one of the children to maintain the silence of th...
  • Wanda
    I like Detective Carl Mørck, despite a couple of his unlovable characteristics—he is quite a prejudiced guy, not really giving his assistants, Assad and Rose, much credit. He is also a gold-bricker, trying his very best to sleep through his final years in the cold case division before retirement. Despite his intentions, the case of this mysterious letter, written in blood and pleading for help, eventually galvanizes him into action and even in...
  • Jean-Paul Adriaansen
    What a great combination of action, suspense, and humor. Jussi Adler-Olsen is a master in the art of writing police novels. This book is even better than The Keeper of Lost Causes .An old message in a bottle puts Department Q in full swing. While Carl Morck has to deal with personal issues (ex-wife, friends, and his dream woman Mona), his work at the office gets "kind-a-complicated." Assad and a new assistant are overly eager to solve the case a...

  • Paul Secor
    This was not a bad police procedural/thriller (which is why I gave it three stars), but there was too much going on for it to hold together. There are loose ends - characters meet up with violence and are dropped; several ridiculous occurrences that don't ring true and were obviously included to move the plot along; and characterizations that are never fully developed (though I suppose that's a teaser to get readers to read other volumes in the s...
  • aPriL does feral sometimes
    Denmark's Department Q, responsible for special and cold police cases, is in a state of chaos! Asbestos particles and flies are floating around in the basement offices where Carl Mørck heads the Q department, Rose Knudsen is gone temporarily in a huff and instead her even more annoying sister Ysra has come to help in her place as secretary, and Hafez el-Assad has unexpectedly discovered a clue on deadly arson cases which the rest of the police f...
  • Andy
    Back in bed with the Q Department! My fav Nordic Noir of late.New additions to the “gang” are Rose’s "twin" & also Hardy has moved in with the “family” after much humming & harring in the previous read. All add to Carl’s demeanour & obvious stress levels which does entertain as much as his colleagues exasperation at his criticisms of them all. Dysfunctional at Home & at work is the appeal to this series for me as well as a darn fine m...
  • Franco Santos
    Deja que se pronuncie sobre la vida quien está ante la muerte; quien sabe que va a ocurrir enseguida; quien ve cómo se le echa encima el momento en que todo se desvanece. Definitivamente esta serie no es para mí. Dudo continuarla. El mensaje que llegó en una botella, en mi opinión, es un libro malo. ¿Por qué digo esto? Porque tiene muchas subtramas aburridas que no afectan en nada a la trama principal, el detective (Carl Mørck) es un pers...

    Retomada la serie del departamento Q, después de haber leído el primero hace tiempo. He disfrutado con las situacione. a veces incluso surrealistas) a las que se enfrenta el inspector debido, tanto a sus ayudantes, un tanto peculiares; como a su carácter irascible.Todo lo anterior no quita que las tramas sean un tanto escabrosas.

    Carl Morck, head of Department Q, is back at the closed files again. Along with his eccentric sidekick Assad, and his more eccentric secretary, Rose, they try to solve the crime of a serial killer who targets children who come from families of unusual and small religious sects. The killer tells the parents that he wants one million kroner in ransom and if the police are called or anyone is told of the crime, the other children in the family will ...

    Tý vogo! Uf. Znáte ten pocit, kdy je vám od čtení až skoro fyzicky špatně, jak je to napínavý? Tak tahle kriminálka vám to zaručí. Je to drsná jízda!Jsem rád, že jsem našel, že na tom humbuku kolem severské detektivky může něco být. Anebo je možná Jussi Adler-Olsen výjimka. Každopádně, to co zažívam u čtení jeho knih, mě u jiných autorů zcela míjelo. Třeba o propracovanosti charakterů na téhle úrovni si ...
  • Erin *Help I’m Reading and I Can’t Get Up*
    4 stars!This book was miiiiiiiles ahead of the second in the series, which was excruciating. PROS:-The religious aspect of the central crimes was fascinating.-Carl continues to be an only-somewhat-lovable dbag, which is refreshing. No secret good qualities here, folks. Carl just sucks (#realistic), but you're on his side because he's ultimately on the good side.CONS:-WAY too many competing mysteries, some of which I will detail behind this spoile...
  • MyGoodBookshelf
    The third book in this Scandi-crime series was one that I’d really been looking forward to reading. Needless to say, I wasn’t at all disappointed by its contents. Redemption had a gripping, fast-paced storyline and was well worth the wait; in my opinion is by far the strongest Department Q novel to date. Grumpy Police Detective Carl Mørck comes across as pretty lazy the majority of the time. In fact, on most occasions it is actually his assi...
  • Sarah
    This was a phenomenal book. Adler-Olsen does a truly brilliant job of creating complex characters that puzzle me with their behavior. Inevitably he explains it really well and I'm kind of left amazed.This book involves a man who is targeting people who are a part of very closed religious families. Is he a serial killer? A kidnapper? It takes awhile to get that answer and we get glimpses into his past as well as his present day life along the way....
  • Charlene Intriago
    It's crime at its darkest - standard fare from most of the Scandinavian writers - and one I was going to give two stars to when I first started reading but only because of the nature of the crime. But, of course, as I got further into the book, I was hooked. Detective Carl Morck of Department Q works the old cases, the cold cases, the ones others have given up on, and this case is old. A bottle found by a fisherman who turned it into a policeman ...
  • Vesela
    Много ми хареса книгата - типична скандинавска кримка, добре написана! Получих това, което очаквах на 100%! Имаше някои малки неща, които ме дразнеха и бяха абсолютно излишни в романа - като ронещият се азбест от тръбите на подземието, където се помещ...
  • Bronislava Sencakova
    Zo série Q ma tento diel zaujal zatiaľ najviac. V porovnaní s Kurtom Wallanderom má Carl svoj tím, čiže nie je až taký superhrdina ako Kurt. Ale zase Carl má viac pátracích náhod (kto nepretočí aspoň trikrát očné bulvy?) a veselší život.Veľké sklamanie rozmeru "wtf fail" je rámovanie asistentky Rose, (view spoiler)[resp. Yrsy, ktorá má "schizofréniu". Schizofrénia NIE je striedavá zmena identity, ale niečo úplne in...

    Somnul ratiunii, cel de-al treilea volum al seriei (autorul are de gand sa scrie 10 carti ale departamentului Q, am aflat de curand) debuteaza cu o sticla misterioasa si un mesaj scris cu sange uman. Carl, Assad si Rose descifreaza mesajul descoperind ca acesta provine de la doi frati, rapiti in anii 90, despre care nu se stie nimic, pentru ca disparitia lor nu a fost niciodata raportata. Cine sunt?De aici porneste toata increngatura de mistere c...

    It’s been so long since I’ve read the first two of this series by Adler-Olsen, I needed to go back and read the descriptions and my reviews before I began reading this third of the series. As I mentioned before I enjoyed the interplay between Carl and his assistant, Assad. Not enough credit is given to Assad, who functions in an unorthodox manner, but solves some of the questions of the case. There is more of Carl’s personal life in this bo...
