Summary
In a Copenhagen park the body of an elderly woman is discovered. The case bears a striking resemblance to another unsolved homicide investigation from over a decade ago, but the connection between the two victims confounds the police. Across town a group of young women are being hunted. The attacks seem random, but could these brutal acts of violence be related? Detective Carl Morck of Department Q is charged with solving the mystery

Review
  • What's the connection between the elderly woman whose head was bashed in and the young woman who was rammed by a car? That's one of the questions in the latest of Jussi Adler-Olsen's excellent mysteries about Copenhagen's Department Q, which investigates cold cases. Graeme Malcolm's understated, almost gentle, narration is one of the many pleasures of this ungentle story as Inspector Carl M�rck and his team navigate related cases, police politics, and the collapse of a beloved colleague. Malcolm captures the characters' personalities and accents--M�rck's voice is tired, his tone sometimes impatient, and Inspector Assad sounds foreign born. Malcolm also shines when called upon to channel aggrieved 20-something girls and an equally aggrieved murderous woman. A.C.S. � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
  • Scottish actor Malcolm returns to ably narrate the latest installment of the Department Q series by bestselling Danish crime novelist Adler-Olsen. The series stars Carl Mørck, the cantankerous middle-age head of Copenhagen’s Department Q, a neglected cold-case division housed in the basement of police headquarters. As the book opens, Mørck and his team are investigating several unpromising and seemingly unrelated cases, which turn out to be linked. They’re also facing budget cuts, bureaucratic rivalries, and the disappearance of a mentally ill colleague. The book’s many subplots keep the listener attuned, and the resolutions are satisfying. Malcolm is an excellent stand-in for Mørck in both tone and temperament, and he also skillfully represents the book’s other characters, many of whom are young women. He’s called upon to employ a range of accents, including German and Icelandic, and rises to the challenge. This seventh outing for Mørck will delight Adler-Olsen’s many fans, and Malcolm once again delivers as narrator. A Dutton hardcover. (Sept.) --Staff (Reviewed 10/30/2017) (Publishers Weekly, vol 264, issue 44, p)
