Get an inside look at The Purity of Vengeance from the editor, Ben Sevier

The Purity of Vengeance

Jussi Adler-Olsen serves up a new thrilling installment to the Department Q series in The Purity of Vengeance. With plotlines spanning decades, dark characters and motives lurking behind every page, this is a novel you won't want to put down.  

Dear Reader,
The second-best thing about a Jussi Adler-Olsen book is the humor that persists throughout his novels. As Publishers Weekly puts it, "Adler-Olsen merges story lines...with ingenious aplomb, effortlessly mixing hilarities with horrors...This crime fiction tour de force could only have been devised by an author who can even turn stomach flu into a belly laugh."
But the very best thing about a Jussi Adler-Olsen book is that you can read it from the safety of your living room.
