The Keeper of Lost Causes: A Department Q Novel - Jussi Adler-Olsen

Original title: Kvinden i buret

 

This is the first book in Jussi Alder-Olsen's Q-series concerning Danish police detective Carl Morck. I have to admit, I always liked reading Scandinavian detectives a lot. But after years of reading them, I grew a bit tired. Had they first been very new and not as cliché as most US/UK detectives, I got very used to the Scandinavian theme as well. 

 

But this book was different, I really enjoyed it. It was an easy read, but very nice and with a lot of suspense in it.

That cage really was terrifying!

(show spoiler)

I've ever since reading this book planned to read the rest of this series, but so far, I've only read the second book.

 

Note: I read a Dutch translation of this book
