Jussi Adler-Olsen’s Department Q series, with more than
fourteen million copies sold worldwide, continues with the most chilling cold
In 1987, Nete Hermansen plans revenge on those who abused
her in her youth, including Curt Wad, a charismatic surgeon who was part of a
movement to sterilize wayward girls in 1950s Denmark.
More than twenty years later, Detective Carl Mørck already
has plenty on his mind when he is presented with the case of a brothel owner, a
woman named Rita, who went missing in the 1980s: New evidence has emerged in
the case that destroyed the lives of his two partners—the case that sent Carl
to Department Q.
But when Carl’s assistants, Assad and Rose, learn that
numerous other people disappeared around the same weekend as Rita, Carl takes
notice. As they sift through the disappearances, they get closer and closer to
Curt Wad, who is more determined than ever to see the vision of his youth take
hold and whose brutal treatment of Nete and others like her is only one small
part of his capacity for evil. Download and start listening now!
