B 78% Good Notes Characters gush ad nauseam about the victim s beauty I suppose to make her victimization seem ad nauseam about the victim s beauty I suppose to make her victimization seem the tragic Imagine if the brooding detective Kurt Wallander from the Henning Mankell series accidentally wandered into the plot of a Stieg Larsson novel and you d have a pretty good idea of what this book is like Unfortunately we don t get a new Salander but we do get a pretty interesting and flawed character in Carl Morck Morck is a Danish police detective who survived being shot in the head during an attack that left another detective dead and one paralyzed While Morck has eturned to duty he s so depressed and wracked by survivor s guilt that he s barely lifting a finger on his cases and his grumpiness has alienated the other cops His boss decides to take a sour old shot in the head lemon and make lemonade out of him when national politics force him to create a department to work on high profile cold cases Morck is promoted to be in charge of the new Department and sent down to a basement officeAt first Morck is happy to be left alone in the basement where he can smoke all he wants and play computer solitaire all day but when he learns that the he can smoke all he wants and play computer solitaire all day but when he learns that the is using the money allotted for Department to beef up the homicide division he demands a piece of the action including a department car getting the basement fixed up and his own assistant to make the coffee and do the shit work However he gets than just someone to answer the phone with Assad a Syrian immigrant who is curious about the case files When the political pressure to show some progress mounts Morck Ten Twentieth-Century Poets reluctantly ends up looking into the mysterious disappearance of a beautiful female politician Merete Lynggaard who vanished five years before In a parallel story we learn what happened to Merete and her horrible fateThere was a lot I found intriguing about this book The Morck character and the set up of him being exiled to Department was an interesting idea and Ieally liked this grumpy guilt In the Days of the Comet Seventeen Short Stories (Works of H.G. Wells 10) ridden detective with a messy personal life I also loved the dynamic between him and Assad with the bright and curious assistant messing up Morck s plans to sit uietly in the basement and smoke some cigarettes Assad canead a case file and come up with legitimate deductions and uestions but while he s smart enough to track down a long missing piece of critical evidence he doesn t know any better than to handle it once he finds it Unfortunately Morck s messy personal life seemed to be a bit much after a while He keeps getting phone calls and giving money to his estranged wife and after a while you just want to scream at him to get a divorce lawyer and change his number While the circumstances of Merete s abduction and her circumstances are
Disturbing And Horrible I Figured 
and horrible I figured the villain s motive early in the book so that was pretty obvious Plus after a while Merete s predicament starts to go over the top and takes a turn onto Torture Porn Avenue and that s not a neighborhood I like visitingStill despite some clunky writing which could be a translation issue I liked Morck and Assad and I found the basic premise. Carl Mørck 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. ,

Intriguing I ve also got a big streak of Danish heritage but know almost nothing about Denmark so it was fun to soak up a little of the old home country in a better than average crime thriller Book one in a series set in Denmark featuring Detective Inspector one in a series set in Denmark featuring Detective Inspector Morck a man who believes he has exhausted his interest in his job and just wants to sit out the Period Power remaining years to hisetirement A series of events puts him in charge of a newly established cold case department he gets an extremely interesting assistant he finds a case which does interest him and things
Go From ThereI Enjoyed It 
from thereI enjoyed it I found Carl s attitude amusing and his sarcastic comments made me laugh out loud Assad was an absolute delight and goodness knows what else we are going to find out about himThe suspense was absolutely gripping especially towards the end when the two intrepid heroes were up against a countdown which they were unaware of but the Biblical Standard for Evangelists reader knew about I so wanted to take a uick peek at the final pages to settle my nerves but Iestrained myself and just ead fasterSo a good story lots of interesting police work great characters humour suspense what could I ask for Recommended Everything can change in an instantThis seems to be the overwhelming message left by author Jussi Adler Olsen in his 2007 novel The Keeper of Lost Causes published in English in 2011 with a translation from Danish by Lisa HartfordEverything changed for detective Carl Morck in an instant when he and two colleagues were shot during an investigation One of his fellow police officers was killed and the other was injured for life in a horrific and traumatic event that has scarred Morck forever after He is about as wounded and psychologically messed up as a crime fiction protagonist can be and that seems to be a prereuisite for such characters in the dark world of Nordic NoirAdd to this that Morck is a particularly abrasive and unlikeable person to begin with and that helps to explain Morck s surprise when he is promoted to head up a new crime unit devoted to solving cold cases Turns out the move was politically motivated to take advantage of some appropriated funds while also shelving a problematic detective Not born yesterday Carl was politically motivated to take advantage of some appropriated funds while also shelving a problematic detective Not born yesterday Carl out how the wind has changed and at first settles comfortably into his basement digs to wait out the next twenty odd years until etirement by playing Sudoku and napping on the clockA new hire to his department consisting of two people actually wants to do some police work and so the two choose one of the dozens of cold case files and get to work So begins Adler Olsen s introduction of his Department seriesA plausible and seemingly interesting enough premise coupled with the Scandinavian crime fiction theme and this looked like it was headed in all the ight directions But Morck was annoying than wounded and I found myself thinking about Harry Hole or Kurt Wallander Now those are damaged cops you can follow Half the time especially in the dreary sub plot about his home life I wanted to go Vito Corleone on his whiney ass slap him and tell him to ACT LIKE A MANAdler Olsen used a Department 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. ,
Arrative structure where he switched perspectives between Morck and the victim in a crime case and following the victim was appealing than Morck s detective work Until Adler Olsen went overboard and HER STORY TURNED INTO A WEIRD story turned into a weird melodrama Still looking back on the book I felt closer to this storyline THAN WITH MORCK SOVERALL I MUST CONCEDE THAT I with Morck sOverall I must concede that I it almost kind of grudgingly Not one of the better Nordic Noir lineups but Adler Olsen is a good writer and this is a good concept for stories Danish detective Carl Morck is physically and psychologically damaged after an attempted arrest esulted in the death of one of his partners and the paralysis of another The homicide suad doesn t want to work with the difficult detective so he s promoted to head of Department which is tasked with looking into cold cases from all over Denmark Department is given a bare bones space in the cluttered basement and Carl is given one employee Syrian immigrant Assad who s officially a sort of janitor Assad however turns out to be a man of many talents and a gifted detective In fact he s one of the most amusing and interesting characters in the story After futzing around for weeks drinking coffee goofing off and ignoring the cold case files on his desk Carl is forced to show some progress in his investigations Thus he decides to look into the disappearance five years before of Merete Lynggaard of the Social Democratic Party who vanished from a ferry she was taking with her handicapped brother Merete s body was never found and her fate is a complete mystery to the cops In Ebeles Favourite reality Merete is being held prisoner under appalling conditions foreasons she can t fathom The story jumps back and forth between Merete s kidnapping starting in 2002 and what s going on in 2007 during Morck s new investigation Morck is an intuitive detective perhaps the best in the homicide department and with the help of Assad he gathers much new information about Merete s vanishing A lot of the new details should have been discovered by the original investigators whom Carl freely criticizes and chastises These scenes are
Amusing And Oddly SatisfyingAdding To 
and oddly satisfyingAdding to disaffection Carl has a somewhat complicated private life His estranged wife and her new boyfriend are constantly sponging money off him and his teenage stepson who has elected to live with Carl is a typical adolescent I kind of wished Carl would get a backbone give his stepson back to mom and lock up his wallet but I suppose it s all part of Carl s story In addition Carl has a crush on the new counselorpsychologist in the police department and ather embarrasses himself The villains in the story behave in a horrific fashion but they e clever and their complex plan was well thought out As Carl gets closer to finding Merete her time may just be The Quiet Front running out and there s a dramatic suspenseful climax The characters in the book are well portrayed and believable if you accept that some people behave monstrously and the story is engaging I highlyecommend this book to mystery lovers and look forward to Beading on a Loom reading of this author s work You can follow myeviews Five years earlier and is presumed dead But she isn’t dead yetDarkly humorous propulsive and atmospheric The Keeper of Lost Causes introduces American Nights of the Round Table readers to the mega bestselling series fast becoming an international sensatio.
