Description
The first book in "New York Times" bestsellerJussi Adler-Olsen's electrifying Department Q series.
The #1 international bestseller from Jussi Adler-Olsen, author of "The Absent One" perfect for fans of Stieg Larsson's "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo"
Carl Morck used to be one of Copenhagen's best homicide detectives. Then a hail of bullets destroyed the lives of two fellow cops, and Carl who didn t draw his weapon blames himself. So a promotion is the last thing he expects. But Department Q is a department of one, and Carl's got only a stack of Copenhagen's coldest cases for company. His colleagues snicker, but Carl may have the last laugh, because one file keeps nagging at him: a liberal politician vanished five years earlier and is presumed dead. But she isn t dead yet.
Darkly humorous, propulsive, and atmospheric, "The Keeper of Lost Causes" introduces American readers to the mega-bestselling series fast becoming an international sensation.
