Read by Erik Davies

The Keeper of Lost Causes, the first installment of the Department Q series, features the deeply flawed chief detective Carl Mørck, who used to be a good homicide detective-one of Copenhagen’s best. Then a bullet almost took his life. Two of his colleagues weren’t so lucky, and Carl, who didn’t draw his weapon, blames himself. But he still might find redemption…

Praise


“Adler-Olsen’s prose is superior to Larsson’s, his tortures are less discomfiting, and he has a sense of humor.”
– —Booklist (starred review)

“Plan on putting everything else in your life on hold if you pick up this book.”
– —The Oregonian

“The pages fly by as the twisty puzzle unfolds. Stieg Larsson fans will be delighted.”
– —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Far from being just another morose Nordic crime writer, Adler-Olsen creates a detective whose curiosity is as active as his soul is tortured.”
– —Library Journal (starred review)

“The new ‘it’ boy of Nordic Noir.”
– —The Times (London)

The Keeper of Lost Causes is dark, atmospheric, and compelling. Those who loved The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo will devour this book.”
– —C. J. Box, New York Times bestselling author of Cold Wind
