Thriller Police Procedural | Suspense
The Keeper of Lost Causes, the first installment of
Adler-Olsen's 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.
So a promotion is the last thing Carl expects.
But it all becomes clear when he sees his new office in the
basement. Carl's been selected to run Department Q, a new
special investigations division that turns out to be a
department of one. With a stack of Copenhagen's coldest
cases to keep him company, Carl's been put out to pasture.
So he's as surprised as anyone when a case actually captures
his interest. A missing politician vanished without a trace
five years earlier. The world assumes she's dead. His
colleagues snicker about the time he's wasting. But Carl may
have the last laugh, and redeem himself in the process.
Because she isn't dead...yet.
