New York Times and internationally bestselling author Jussi Adler-Olsen returns with the sixth book in his exhilarating Department Q series, featuring Detective Carl Mørck and his enigmatic assistants, Assad and Rose.

In the middle of his usual hard-won morning nap in the basement of police headquarters, Carl Mørck, head of Department Q, receives a call from a colleague working on the Danish island of Bornholm. Carl is dismissive when he realizes that a new case is being foisted on him, but a few hours later, he receives some shocking news that leaves his headstrong assistant Rose more furious than usual. Carl has no choice but to lead Department Q into the tragic cold case of a vivacious seventeen-year-old girl who vanished from school, only to be found dead hanging high up in a tree. The investigation will take them from the remote island of Bornholm to a strange sun-worshiping cult, where Carl, Assad, Rose, and newcomer Gordon attempt to stop a string of new murders and a skilled manipulator who refuses to let anything—or anyone—get in the way.

Quotes & Awards

  • “It can be hard to distinguish Scandinavian crime writers—there are a lot of them…but Jussi Adler-Olsen is a name to know. In a crowded genre, Adler-Olsen is an outlier.”

    GQ magazine

  • “Simultaneously sardonic and funny.”

    Sacramento Bee

  • “This book is not for the faint of heart, but for readers who enjoy dark humor and wisecracking heroes and heroines, you’ll love Department Q.”

    Suspense Magazine

  • “This series has enough twists to captivate contemporary mystery readers and enough substance and background to entertain readers with historical and literary tastes.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • “Adler-Olsen wields a one-two punch of psychological suspense, as his trademark parallel plot follows the remorseless killer’s manipulations while the humorous, sometimes touching rapport between Mørck and Assad threatens to steal the show. A must for procedural devotees and fans of Scandinavian mysteries.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Narrator Graeme Malcolm captures the irritable detective’s interior life in an edgy, masculine timbre. Malcolm’s deep vocals tinge the story with an ongoing subtext of impending danger. The steady pace of his narration sweeps the listener along as the connections between a gruesome cult and teenage manslaughter are revealed. Malcolm’s confident narration differentiates the many characters Mørck questions during his investigation. Following the plot is easy—the chapters are short, building on one another as they’re infused by Malcolm’s intensity. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
