Detective Carl Mørck of Department Q, Copenhagen's cold cases division, meets his toughest challenge yet when the dark, troubled past of one of his own team members collides with a sinister unsolved murder.
In a Copenhagen park the body of an elderly woman is discovered. The case bears a striking resemblance to another unsolved homicide investigation from over a decade ago, but the connection between the two victims confounds the police. Across town a group of young women are being hunted. The attacks seem random, but could these brutal acts of violence be related? Detective Carl Mørck of Department Q is charged with solving the mystery.
Back at headquarters, Carl and his team are under pressure to deliver results: failure to meet his superiors’ expectations will mean the end of Department Q. Solving the case, however, is not their only concern. After an earlier breakdown, their colleague Rose is still struggling to deal with the reemergence of her past—a past in which a terrible crime may have been committed. It is up to Carl, Assad, and Gordon to uncover the dark and violent truth at the heart of Rose’s childhood before it is too late.

We all know how picky I am when it comes to jumping into the middle of a long running series; while I appreciate books that have the feel of a standalone, I also immensely enjoy the backstory of reoccurring characters and the development of their personalities and individual storylines.

I always loved his books. They count to my favorites, but now I have to say that this story wasn't as good as the previous books.
I have to say it was catchy and very intense. But it was a bit too much. What i mean is, Carl Mrøck tried to solve five different cases and they have all been connecte...

Dual review with Swedish first and then English!
Selfies är bok 7 i Avdelning Q och är den första boken jag läser i serien. Nu är det så att jag länge velat läsa serien, då böckerna verkar väldigt bra, men jag har inte hunnit med dem (Så många böcker, så lite tid). Men då jag fick...

In this particular book, Rose is the main character. Her lack of reports has resulted in the department being threatened by dismantling. C...
