A New York Times Bestselling Author -- Assigned to run Department Q, Detective Carl Mørck is satisfied with picking up long-cold leads. So he's naturally intrigued when a closed double-murder case lands on his desk. And when Mørck reopens the files, it becomes clear that all is not what it seems. The supposedly solved case leads him to Kimmie, a woman living on the streets, stealing to survive. Kimmie has secrets that influential individuals would kill to keep buried.

Review:

Praise for The Absent One

“Adler-Olsen, Denmark’s leading crime fiction author, outdoes his outstanding debut, The Keeper of Lost Causes, with his second Department Q novel.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Adler-Olsen's humor and his portrayal of Kimmie's sad life make The Absent One stand out among today's flood of Nordic mysteries.”—Kirkus Reviews

The Copenhagen-set sequel to The Keeper of Lost Causes is quirky and wry.”—The Sacramento Bee

Adler-Olsen has created a wonderful addition to the detective fiction genre...Readers of detective fiction, international crime fiction, and suspense fiction will highly enjoy this thriller.”—Library Journal (starred review)

More Praise for Jussi Adler-Olsen's Department Q series

“If you like the dark humor, wisecracking, and layered betrayals of Raymond Chandler, then read Adler-Olsen’s Department Q series.”—Men's Journal

“A tense, pleasurable read.”—USA Today

“[A] sordid tale... inspired by actual events during a dark period of Danish history. Ah, but there is more, so much more in this frenzied thriller.”—The New York Times Book Review

“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.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“This series has enough twists to captivate contemporary mystery readers and enough substance and background to entertain readers with historical and literary tastes.”—Library Journal (starred review)

“When your series relies on cold cases, it’s not always easy to craft plots that have both historical interest and an air of urgency, but it’s something Adler-Olsen is very good at.”—Booklist
