The Absent One: A Department Q Novel - Jussi Adler-Olsen

Original title: Fasandræberne



I'd like to make a note about the covers of the English edition, they really don't look like detective covers to me. If I saw this in a bookshop, I'd probably think it was a novel...


I’ve read the first book in the Q-series years ago, but somehow there never seemed to be time to read this second book by Danish writer Jussi Adler-Olsen. After reading I can’t believe I’ve waited so long. It was a wonderful read. I’m not really into thrillers lately, but I liked this one a lot, and am planning not to wait another couple of years before reading the next book!


Note: For your consideration: This is the Dutch cover:

De Fazantenmoordenaars


Note: I read a Dutch translation of this book.
