Product description

Review

“Adler-Olsen, Denmark’s leading crime fiction author, outdoes his outstanding debut, The Keeper of Lost Causes, with his second Department Q novel.”
Publishers Weekly, (starred review)

"Adler-Olsen's humor and his portrayal of Kimmie's sad life make
The Absent One stand out among today's flood of Nordic mysteries."
Kirkus Reviews

"The Copenhagen-set sequel to
The Keeper of Lost Causes is quirky and wry."
The Sacramento Bee

"Adler-Olsen has created a wonderful addition to the detective fiction genre...Readers of detective fiction, international crime fiction, and suspense fiction will highly enjoy this thriller."
Library Journal (starred review)

“The pages fly by as the twisty puzzle unfolds. Stieg Larsson fans will be delighted.”
Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Keeper of Lost Causes

“[An] absorbing psychological thriller.” 
Library Journal (starred review) on The Keeper of Lost Causes

“Comparisons [to Stieg Larsson] are inevitable and, while he may lack a Salander, Adler-Olsen’s prose is superior to Larsson’s, his tortures are less discomfiting, and he has a sense of humor.”
Booklist (starred review) on The Keeper of Lost Causes

“Plan on putting everything else in your life on hold if you pick up this book.”
The Oregonian onThe Keeper of Lost Causes

“A relentless thrill ride of surprise, shock and terror.”
The Sacramento Bee onThe Keeper of Lost Causes

“The new ‘it’ boy of Nordic Noir.”
The Times, London on The Keeper of Lost Causes

"
The Keeper of Lost Causes is the one I'd be most eager-and most reluctant-to loan."
The Boston Globe on The Keeper of Lost Causes

"
The Keeper of Lost Causes is dark, atmospheric, and compelling. Those who loved The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo will devour this book." 
— C.J. Box
