In the middle of a hard-won morning nap in the basement of police headquarters, Carl Mørck, head of Department Q, receives a call from a colleague working on the Danish island of Bornholm. Carl is dismissive at first, but then he receives some shocking news.

Carl then has no choice but to lead Department Q into the tragic cold case of a vivacious seventeen-year-old girl who vanished from school, only to be found dead hanging high up in a tree. The investigation will take them from the remote island of Bornholm to a hidden cult, where Carl and his assistants must stop a string of new murders by a skilled manipulator who refuses to let anything-or anyone-get in the way.

My review

The story opens up in 1997 Alberte Goldsmith a popular seventeen-year-old girl had been killed in a car accident. Her limp body was found hanging from a branch in a tree. The question is can the police find out who killed Alberte all them many years ago?

 In 2014 Police Sergeant Christian Habersaat committed suicide,but the question is why did do that? Christian Habersaat wife informs her son, Bjarke that his father is dead, which leads Bjarke to take his own life. Or was there more to Bjarke’s life that made him kill himself?

So much happens in this crime book, I can see how Jussi Adler-Olsen’s books are routinely top best sellers.

Internationally best-selling author Jussi Adler-Olsen returns with the sixth book in his exhilarating Department Q series, featuring much-loved series character Detective Carl Morck.

Over 12.5 million copies sold worldwide. The first three books in the Department Q series have been made into critically acclaimed films selected by Sundance Film Festival in 2014 and winner of the Glass Key Award.
