The new it boy of Nordic Noir (The Times, London) delivers an electrifying follow up to his New York Times bestselling debut
In The Keeper of Lost Causes, American audiences were finally introduced to Copenhagen's Detective Carl Morck and his creator, #1 international bestselling author Jussi Adler-Olsen. Now, Morck is back. He's settled into Department Q and is ready to take on another cold case. This time, it's the brutal double-murder of a brother and sister two decades earlier. One of the suspects confessed and is serving time, but it's clear to Morck that all is not what it seems. Kimmie, a homeless woman with secrets involving certain powerful individuals, could hold the key if Morck can track her down before they do.
