The Keeper of Lost Causes

Series: Carl Mørck, Department Q (1st)

From : The police procedural aspect of the book is excellent, with the pieces of a missing person's puzzle all contained within a five-year-old cold case file. It's a real pleasure following Mørck along as he puts them together in an effort to locate the woman in the cage (the original Danish title of this book).

Synopsis (from the publisher): Carl Mørck 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.
