Un livre qu'on a du mal à poser. Un héros sympathique justement parcke qu'il n'a rien d'un héros et des personnages annexes attachants et étranges. Une intrigue haletante des retours en arrière des bonds en avant. Un super polar.

Aussi mauvais que John Sandford, c'est tout dire. A éviter absolument. Ce n'est même pas digne d'un roman de gare.

HASH(0xa1c5854c) étoiles sur 5 Anti-social detective hunts high-society criminals 20 juillet 2012
Par Patto - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I pounced on this book because I loved the previous book, The Keeper of Lost Causes (alternate title Mercy), featuring Carl Mørck, head of department Q. To get full enjoyment out of this book, I'd suggest reading the earlier book first, where Carl's irascible, anti-social personality and personal troubles are introduced. Carl is such a difficult employee that the Homicide chief has given him his own department and stuck him in the basement, with a load of dead-end cases no one has been able to solve. Carl solved one such lost cause in the previous book.

This book begins with a case file that appears inexplicably on Carl's desk. Strangely, it's a closed case, with a conviction already in place. Two siblings were murdered, and a student at a prestigious boarding school confessed. So why should Carl bother with it? But he gets intrigued and discovers that the supposed killer was part of a rich kids' gang. The more he digs, the more he suspects the whole gang. But by now they've made their own millions and are roaming the upper echelons of Danish society.

No one wants Carl Mørck going after these financial demigods.

We know who the villains are, so the plot evolves around Carl's attempts to get evidence against them. In the background is a dangerous woman who used to be part of the gang and is now out to get them. Kimmie is a fascinating creature, part villainess, part victim; a rich girl turned bag lady.

I found the criminals and their doings a bit unbelievable, but I enjoyed the book anyway. I loved Carl's oddball team (a mysterious Muslim and a fierce feminist). And I was amused by Carl's lustful attraction to the woman shrink who's assigned to fix his personality disorders.

I definitely recommend Jussi Adler-Olsen's Department Q mysteries, especially to fans of Scandinavian Noir.

HASH(0xa1c589f0) étoiles sur 5 "They were all outsiders, and they were filled with hatred...constantly on the hunt for excitement and ways to transgress." 21 août 2012
Par Mary Whipple - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Readers who enjoyed Danish author Jussi Adler-Olsen's first mystery to be translated into English, The Keeper of Lost Causes (published in the UK as Mercy), will probably enjoy this second unusual novel as much as the first. This mystery is somewhat different in its focus, however, spending less time on establishing the characters of out-of-favor Detective Carl Morck and his "assistant" Assad, hired originally as a custodian but with a remarkable talent for police investigation. Though little new or dramatic information is learned here about the intriguing personal lives of Morck and Assad (from a country in the Middle East), their characters deepen as the author shows them interacting with each other. Morck is also assigned a new employee, this one a secretary on "mile-high heels." All three characters work together when they decide to investigate a twenty-year-old case file that has mysteriously appeared on Morck's desk.

The case concerns a group of friends whose relationship goes back to prep school. Most have become immensely successful in the two decades since then. One is the owner of sixteen hospitals, one is an internationally recognized designer, one is a stock market analyst, and one, now deceased, has been a shipping magnate. Yet another, now in jail for confessing to a serious crime, has amassed a stock portfolio of incredible value. Rumors have swirled about this group from the time they were in school, since beatings, mayhem, and disappearances seemed to follow in their wake, but no one has ever been able to pin anything specific on any of them, and most have now become leaders of the community. The only female member of this group disappeared long ago.

That female, known as Kimmie, is now a street person, a violent woman with serious mental illness who spends her life trying to avoid people. Still angry about her treatment by members of the group more than twenty years ago, Kimmie, spurred on by her demons, has started to attack some of them, and when she is eventually spotted in Copenhagen, the group hires a private detective to find and eliminate the threat she represents to them all. Realizing that she is being followed, she decides she will take down those involved, and she amasses an arsenal which includes grenades, automatic weapons, and silencers. With no conscience, she is clearly the "absent one," but the author makes her a remarkably sympathetic character despite her sadistic behavior, and few readers will fail to respond to her pathetic neediness.

With half a dozen members of the gang, and Morck, Assad, Rose, and numerous police all involved in the story, what may seem like a fairly simple, straightforward plot becomes, instead, an intricate study of characters and interactions. The life of each member of the gang is described in detail from school to adulthood, adding to the tension and preventing them from becoming stereotypes. As the author slowly reveals the many and varied crimes they have all committed, including those against Kimmie, the novel becomes filled with dark psychological twists and turns. The novel is enhanced by the fact that Morck, Assad, and Rose are also unique characters who do not respond in traditional ways, and moments of humor accompany much of the horror. (Note: This novel was published in the UK as Disgrace.)

This is the second in a series of books about 'Department Q', in Copenhagen, Police Department, which handles old, cold cases. The Department is headed by Carl Morck, with one assistant, Assad. Into their lives , Rose is foisted upon them. Essentially she caused trouble in her old job, but she thrives under Carl's form of leadership, receive assignment, get it done, and get it right. Carl loves his job, and is an excellent example of a hard working man whose life depends upon his work.

The current case fell into their hands, so to speak. Someone left the file and then one by one odelicious clues fall into their hands. A gruesome killing of a sister and brother turns into many killings, one more gruesome than the last. This is not a whodunit, we already know. The story is told crime by crime via one of the perpetrators, Kimmie. A group of four wealthy public school friends started drugging and beating. This all leads to savagery. Each member of the group becomes more wealthy, and lives exemplerary lives, at least on the surface. Carl and his team ferret out each clue and tell the rest of the story.

This novel was too pathological and gory for my tastes. Much of it, 'way out there'. The characters are nasty, without any remorse. I olike Carl and his team's efforts, but the mystery needs to be a little less complex in its savegery. It didn't live up to the first book in the series. Here's hoping for a real thriller in number three.

HASH(0xa1c58b10) étoiles sur 5 Extremely disturbing 3 octobre 2012
Par CaitieDid - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I read the first book in this series and loved it, so, of course, I immediately purchased this one as well. However, this one did not live up to my expectations at all. It's filled with very detailed accounts of extreme cruelty to people and animals, more so than necessary, and more so than I could handle. I had to stop reading it because it made me start crying with how disturbing it was. If you cannot handle extreme violence against animals, and vivid portrayals of it, do NOT read this book. I really couldn't believe how horrible the material in this book was. I'm writing this review to warn people, so they don't make my mistake and buy a book they cannot read.

I bought this book with great anticipation, I LOVED the first book and couldn't wait to hear from Carl and the other characters. However, what I got was an enormous amount of unwanted details relating to some of the most horrific people I have read about. The amount of detail about what these people do to people and to animals was just too much, I felt disgusted the entire time. At about 80% I began to skim it because I just couldn't believe that I was reading this crap. It seems the author set out to make the reader uncomfortable and chose to go into such details just for the sake of grossing someone out. I'm not sure I can or will read his 3rd book, I am so offended and that doesn't happen very often, that I'm not sure I am willing to give him another chance. If you don't want to read about a bunch of sadits who hurt people and animals then DO NOT read this book.
