Read The Scarred Woman (Department Q, #7) Online Free - The New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author of The Keeper of Lost Causes delivers his most captivating and suspenseful Department Q novel yet—perfect for fans of Stieg Larsson.
 
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. That said...

4.5/5 The Scarred Woman had one complex, elaborate plot, there were so many plot threads that I kept wondering how in the world they would all come together?! Don’t get me wrong, there wasn’t too much going on and I wasn’t overwhelmed or anything like that. It actually made the book really excitin...

Thank you Penguin Random House for the ARC. This is the first book that I have read in this series. The author took a group of plot lines and tied them together in one thrilling story. He took themes such as benefits fraud, mental illness, and retribution to a new level. The author also dealt with...

Two or three stars is my question? This is the 7th book in the Department Q series by Jussi Adler-Olsen. This whole series has been a solid four stars for me, so I was surprised I didn't care for this one. It never grabbed me. It had less mystery and it was more about Rose. I just wasn't taken ho...

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! SWEDISH REVIEW 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...

I loved this! Jussi Adler-Olsen has done it again - delivered a fascinating story of murder and mayhem with our favorite cast of characters from Department Q. In this particular book, Rose is the main character. Her lack of reports has resulted in the department being threatened by dismantling. C...

Carl Morck and Department Q are working cold cases when a current case being worked in homicide has some strong similarities to their case. Meanwhile, a social worker goes on a homicidal spree, targeting her "good for nothing" charges. And Department Q's Rose suffers a breakdown, which goes unnot...
