The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen Book Summary

Get to know the detective in charge of Copenhagen's coldest cases in the first electrifying Department Q mystery from New York Times bestselling author Jussi Adler-Olsen.

Carl Mørck used to be one of Denmark’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 cold 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.

Keeper of Lost CausesThis book started out agonizingly slow. Once it got going it was terrific. Very good police procedural with a lot of personal touches. Great suspenseful ending, that I couldn't read fast enough!.Score: 5/5

Excellent; intenseThis was a great read. As an American who has never traveled to Scandinavia, it was a little hard to get started with, much in the same way as "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" was - but well worth the investment of time. Great characters; very complex; injured people following through in disturbed and evil ways. Morck and his sidekick were great - I hope to see them again..Score: 4/5

Read in 28hrsFrom beginning to end I could not put this book down. The story line is great and the characters are very entertaining. I've been looking for a good thriller since reading the millennium trilogy over a year ago and finally I found one. Can't wait to read the next book..Score: 5/5

SuperbSuperb thriller.Score: 5/5

Unbelievably creative novelIt is a mystery novel where the mystery is far less important than the wonderfully creative characters at the center of this story. This book was full of humor, terror, excitement, and love. It pulled every emotional string in my body. It was a wonderful story. I cannot imagine how this writer can possibly equal this book in the next one that is published in the US, but I sure am going to be looking for it. Shame on the publisher for not having his previous books published here. Did I say that I loved this book? West palm Beach, FL.Score: 5/5

Great book!I enjoyed this book tremendously and only wish my brother David was here to share it with. Great book!.Score: 5/5

Beach noirNot bad if you’re looking for a Nordic police procedural. I found the social commentary a bit forced (but maybe that’s because I’m not familiar with Danish politics). Otherwise, it was good beach reading..Score: 3/5

ExceptionalGreat fun. Maybe a little slow at first but it really builds momentum. Am looking forward to reading more by this author. It is a disservice to compare the author to Stieg Larsson. Although I'm also a fan of Larsson this writer is quite different. This book is less Scandi-noir & violent and Adler-Olsen invests his main characters with humor. The plotting is excellent and you don't have to ignore some of the preposterousness of the "tattoo" books. I couldn't help but think what a great movie "Keeper" would make. Then I read on IMDB that such a movie exists. Hurry up Netflix get it in your system!.Score: 4/5

The Keeper of Lost CausesOne of the most well written books I have ever read. Kept the reader involved with the characters throughout. 5 STARS from me!!.Score: 5/5
