4.1 of 5 Votes: 4
I think I enjoy the character development in these books, especially with Assad and Rose. What is going on with them individually? Rose does something really strange in this book, and I hope we find out why eventually. Assad's mysteries continue to be revealed bit by bit. Karl continues to be ace...

Excellentissime ! Carl Morck tente de faire le tri dans les enquêtes non résolues empilées sur son bureau, lorsqu'il reçoit un colis envoyé par ses collègues écossais, mais dont il ne sait que faire : les restes d'une bouteille et son contenu, une lettre dont seuls les mots « au secours » semblen...

Deel 3 in Serie Q vond ik veel beter dan deel 2. Na het fantastische deel 1 (De Vrouw in de Kooi) viel 'De Fazantenmoordenaars' wat tegen. 'De Noodkreet in de Fles' maakt dat echter meer dan goed: een erg intrigerend startpunt gecombineerd met het precies snel genoeg ontrafelen van het plot maakt...

As a reader who has spent decades reading books by and about white men, I really did enjoy this book. It was fun reading a crime thriller set in a country other than Britain or the US. The story was interesting and presented a set of truly bad 'bad guys' with just enough of a twist that one might...

While a typical mystery novel, the author is able to pull you into the story and the character's lives. The "bad guys" are identified early one so the mystery is more whether the police will solve the historical crimes before anything worse happens and whether one of the missing gang members wil...

Why I read this book? Simple: "Keeper of the lost causes" was awsome and I really liked the character development. Here? Not so much.The plot is ok, character of Kimmie is in my opinion written very well. It's other villians that I have problem with. They are grotesque, I'm supposed to be at leas...

Excellent introduction to this Danish author. Centred around the cold case unit led by Carl Morck, he is investigating a series of crimes supposedly carried out by a group of boarding school teenagers, most of whom are now respectable leading businessmen. It would have been 5* but for me person...

скандинавський детективний трилер, «бєсмислєнний і бєспащадний»: регіон з найнижчим, мабуть, у світі рівнем злочинності, а надто тяжких злочинив з убивствами, генерує криваві психопатичні сюжети, малоцікаві з точки зору художньої цінності, і сам же їх залюбки споживає =/ мабуть, тут є робота для ...

I love it when I find a new author. Once this got going I found it riveting especially as it raced towards the end. I did find the revenge exacted rather excessive but it made for excellent drama and tension. Great characters too, the curmudgeonly detective was a bit stereotypical but well dra...

This very highly regarded novel is just not my cup of tea. Well written, sure, but just too dark for me. Perhaps that's just the nature of Scandinavian writing.The hero, barely, is a police detective, Carl Mørck. Mørck has problems: he just survived an attack that killed two of his police c...

I don't know what it is about Scandinavia, but every book I've read (in translation) by an author from that region of the world has been extraordinary, regardless of genre. Perhaps it's the cold that invites such introspection and spare prose.In 2002, an up-and-coming liberal politician, Merete ...
