Rachel N. | 1470 comments Carl Morck works for the homicide department in Copenhagen. He and two fellow officers were recently shot at and Carl is having a hard time coping. His boss makes Carl head of Department Q which is assigned cold cases. Department Q consists of Carl and a non-police assistant Assad who has many hidden talents. The first case he investigates is the disappearance of politician Merete Lynggaard 5 years ago. The book alternates between Carl and Merte's perspectives. I figured out who the culprit was fairly easily but I really enjoyed the relationship between Carl and Assad and the steps they took in researching the case. I plan on continuing the series and hope to find out more about the mysterious and likeable Assad.


Hilde (hilded) | 388 comments I enjoy this series as well. A nice palate cleanser between heavier books. And the wordplays by Assad is terrific, lol 😂
