    B 76% | Good Notes What's absent here is mystery The investigation only matters inasmuch as it reveals backstory and clarifies motive

    35 stars In this second book in the 'Department Q' series Detective Morck investigates a double murder in a boarding school two decades ago The book can be read as a standalone Boarding SchoolFYI The book was adapted into a movie The illustrations are from the filmMovie PosterDetective Carl Morck's 'Department Q' in Copenhagen Denmark which investigates cold cases has a new task Two boarding school students a brother and sister were killed twenty years ago and a clique of unruly fellow students were suspects Evidence was lacking however and the students weren't charged Two unruly students in the cliqueThen almost a decade later one of the students confessed and went to prison The others went on their way the men becoming rich successful businessmen and the lone woman in the group becoming a homeless bag lady Morck believes the whole clique committed the murders and decides to re investigate the case The male students grow up to be successful businessmen The female student Kimmie grows up to be a homeless vagrant The delinquent boarding school students are psychopaths who delight in beating up and killing people among other thingsThe clique of psychopaths Their activities continue into adulthood and Morck's team uncovers a series of crimes the clique may have committed The men in the group feel invulnerable because they have connections in high places and in fact certain police officials and politicians attempt to thwart Morck's investigation Businessman feels invulnerable Nevertheless the criminals are concerned They know Kimmie the bag lady has a box of trophies from their victims and they're desperate to get the box Thus Kimmie is being sought by thugs as well as the police The lifestyles debauchery and criminal inclinations of Kimmie and the men are described in some detail and it's clear that the men are evil and Kimmie is deranged Kimmie defends herself On the lighter side Department Q which started out with Morck and his very clever assistant Assad is deemed to merit a new employee secretary Rose Knudsen Rose is a smart strong willed woman who's determined to enhance the basement facilities of Morck's squad Morck doesn't like Rose though and in his curmudgeonly fashion plots to get rid of her The interactions between Morck and Rose provide some of the amusing moments in this very dark story Morck and Assad Rose Morck's team works hard to overcome obstacles and collect clues Meanwhile Morck is dealing with his personal issues which include lusting after the department psychologist worrying about his paralyzed former partner Hardy and living with his teenage stepson The book is well written interesting and comes to a satisfactory conclusion However I didn't enjoy it as much as the first book in the Department Q series The Keeper of Lost Causes which seems balanced in terms of evil peoplehorrible crimes vs amusing charactersscenes Nevertheless this is a good book recommended for mystery fansYou can follow my reviews at

    Another really good book in what I can see is going to be an excellent seriesMaybe The Absent One was not quite as good as The Keeper of Lost Causes but it was still an exciting and entertaining read Carl was as snarky as ever and Assad was just as strange and mysterious Something big must be going to happen with him in a future bookThe plot was maybe just a little over the top but it was still gripping and at times I could not imagine how it was going to end The answer was very satisfactory indeed with appropriate solutions all round So much so that as soon as I turned the last page I gave the book straight to my husband and said You have to read thisNow I am looking forward very much to book 3 which I notice gets very good ratings

    I can't tell you how much I was looking forward to the second offering by this author Sadly Disgrace was a major disappointment and I couldn't even finish it In fact I was so disappointed that I did something I've never done before and asked for a refundI had three problems with the book 1 There wasn't enough of Assad the brilliantly drawn assistant of Carl Morck For me it was Assad who was the stand out character in the first book In this book he wasn't used enough 2 The characterisation was amateurish The main baddie if you like was so irredeemably evil he was like a pantomime villain About the only thing he didn't do was kick someone's crutches away He didn't come across as real 3 Not content to tell us that the main baddies enjoyed hunting animals the author went into great detail about the animals and what would happen them Being a great writer is all about knowing what not to write as much as knowing what to write By including so much hunting I found myself skipping parts because I wasn't only repulsed I was also bored It also made me wonder if the author was padding out the book to reach a certain page countOverall this was a disappointing book Hopefully the next one will be better

    Re visit Winter 2015 Film OnlyTranslated by K E SemmelDedicated to the three Graces and iron ladies Anne Lene and CharlotteOpening When she ventured down the pedestrian street called Strøget she was poised as if on the edge of a knife With her face half covered by a dirty shawl she slipped passed well lit shop windows alert eyes scanning the streetM has just cracked open #3 in this series as swedish audio file FYI have discovered this is not a series where you can jump in at any point they need to be read in orderGone is the humour from book one there is ah but a few lines that will make you smile here The action is not off stage and there is reference to a teacher at the boarding school for the rich and privilged who showed 'Clockwork Orange' and 'If' in the English Culture class That is the sort of dehumanised violence that is on show in this story The translation is for the most good although some of the choppy moments leave one having to rely on intuition; those patches don't hinder the flow of this brutal tale but might leave you feeling a bit miffed Riveting reading but not for the faint hearted The third book will be available in English language from Penguin in spring 2013 and it looks as if there is a change in translator Martin AitkenM was not so keen on this second book but is thoroughly enjoying #34 Mercy Afdeling Q #1 4 Disgrace Afdeling Q #2

    Book ReviewNote this is not a who dun it we know the Who of it from the get go So if the lack of this doesn't hit your sweet spot it might not appeal The Absent One is Adler Olsen's nod towards psychiatry sociopathy youth gangs and his ever present criticism of just about everything a judgment that comes across as a razor blade deftly plunged into the soft flesh of Danish politics and wealth In tiny Denmark the system was so ingenious that if you knew dirt about somebody they also knew something just as bad about you If it wasn't hushed up the one person's offense quickly infected the other's A strange practical principle that meant no one would say anything about anyone else not even if they were caught with their hands in the biscuit tinIn typical Adler Olson fashion his critical sniper scope isn't just aimed at the wealthy in general as the above implies; Adler Olson is just as intent at targeting all millieus through the eyes of his politically incorrect protagonist Carl MØrck As we learn through a reading of The Sociopath Next Door about 1 in 10 in society are sociopaths hiding in plain sight and often quite successful in societyIs there redemption for a sociopath? To that Adler Olson replies There's nothing sadder than a candle without a flameAnd yet strangely enough it is a story about sociopathic redemption I can hear the echo of laughter in the halls of psychiatry at this and they would not be wrong to scorn the thought After all what is empathy to a sociopath it being a requirement for redemption when the lack of it is part of the prognosis? For the first time in her life she saw a victim for precisely what it was; a human being who had possessed a will of its own and the right to live It surprised her that she had never had this feeling beforeWhere then can this redemption be found? A tour de force of genetic inheritance inordinate violence and societal abuse we find that Adler Olson places it to slumber inside the absent one Series ReviewJussi Adler Olsen was born in Copenhagen Denmark in 1950 Known for his 3 stand alones The alphabet House The Company Basher and Washington Decree and the famous Department Q novels his popularity in Denmark has finally migrated over to the US All Department Q novels are set in Denmark and reveal the writings of an author intensely interested in criticizing politics while simultaenously being agnostic to parties in general Not that this is any great revelation as for the most part politics is the mainstay of most European dinner table conversations On this topic of politics the author says If you with that ask me whether I'm critical of the political system then yes If you ask me whether I have a tendency to defend party political opinions then no My agenda political wise is firstly to criticize regardless of what is to criticize and no matter what the basis of view is and secondly to appeal to the politicians in power that they should understand that they are our servants and not our masters and that they first and foremost on their fields of activity should learn to acknowledge mistakes and to evaluate their own actionsThrough his protagonist Carl MØrck a lone detective absconded to the basement of police headquarters heading a cold case department of one and for all the world a detective ostracized for his unsociable and arrogant manner we bump head on into the political machinations of Denmark's finest if not the corruption of a government beyond Not that corruption threatens to take over the story The author is careful about that It's all about having and keeping empathy If you have this ability in your writings it will never be the corruption in itself that is the story's starting point but the people and the relations that the corruption affects It is as simple as that If you want to be a writer you have to learn to turn everything upside downBorn a son to a father with a psychiatric degree and living on the premises of such mental institutions a portion of his life Jussi Adler Olsen has developed a keen insight into a human's boundlessness self centeredness if not the degree to which human beings can succumb to a lack of affection If it wasn't for these issues there wouldn't be any thriller novels in the world And the consequences of these character flaws give me a lot to work with Revenge strive for justice and insanityAs with most Nordic thrillers Jo Nesbo Henning Mankell Larson etc there's a certain ennui that pervades the populace Perhaps that is due to the unique form of Scandinavian democracy that today seems to be under siege by globalistic tendencies a slight leaning to the right that highly values the individual instead of the public society so prominent in Scandinavian countries As with these other thriller writers we view a somber if not morose societypractical but not affluent in that affection mentioned by the author We have had a very negative and sad period but the right to criticize and reject bad ideas in their unblemished form still holds And there is no other place on earth in my opinion that uses this right as frequently and thoughtfully which I'm proud ofBut what is it about novels that is captivating readers across the globe? I can only speak for myself As always translations must be kept in mind and my hat's off to those who attempt to translate a foreign language into English It is an art in and of itself Especially when one considers that it is possible to have thoughts in one language that are not possible in another Being bilingual myself I still wrestle with certain idioms not available to me when communicating in English In this sense Lisa Hartford does an excellent job in her translation from Danish to English Indeed in terms of immediate and enduring attention grabbing Adler Olsen is in the Chandler classAs with most European and Scandinavian mysterycrime novels the causation behind the crime is usually a simple event rationalized by an unhealthy mind I love this about Nordic thrillershow we are brought to fully understand motivation as part of the unravelling of a mystery You could say that this is exactly what is wrong with Hollywood where everything is sensationalized instead of sprung forth out of ordinary lifeJunior Detective Superintendent Carl MØrck has a brilliant mind and as is usually the case brilliance inspires envy and envy destroys achievements The way Jussi Adler Olsen portrays this within the Danish police force cannot be dismissed Ever critical he has created a character both perfectly ordinary as well as constantly critical of everything set before him There is a quiet humor behind the man who has no qualms about doing nothing but placing his feet on his desk and complain that he is too busyuntil of course he becomes interested at which point he becomes a Danish bloodhoundThe plots are exquisite driven not by the unveiling of a carefully kept ending held close to the chest by the author I've read reviews where some partially dismiss this author for guessing the who dun it half way through but rather by the unveiling of the true motivation behind the crime which gives the reader an entirely different satisfaction Cold cases are tough and most of them are not solved But as Adler Olson says It's all about having and keeping empathyThis review will be the same for all Department Q novelsso if you've read this one you've read 'em all Updates will be included in subsequent novels in this series if warrantedEnjoy

    This is the second book also know as The Absent Onein the Department Q series set in Denmark Once again Carl Mørck and his quirky assistant Assad are on the trail of an apparent cold case There are some terribly gruesome crimes and abuses described in this book but it is told with such humanity and humour it is quite well balanced out The thing that really surprises me about this author is that he is not as well known or popular as Stieg Larsson This series really is so terribly good If you have not read one of these books pick up a copy of The Keeper of Lost Causes also known as Mercy and read it Highly recommended I cannot wait to read the third book

    This second book in the series held my interest but I don't think it was as good as the first Typical?There was a higher level of cruelty and depravity in this book I like Carl Assad and the addition of Rose I had hoped to learn about Assad but not from this book I'm curious to see where the next books go with these characters

    A disappointment I liked Jussi Adler Olsen's Keeper of the Lost Causes quite a lot The Absent One is definitely not in the same class Carl Morcks's character is still interesting but the characterizations of two other protagonists Assad and Rosa are just caricaturesThe Absent One could have been a great revenge story yet it veered into a totally unbelievable territory Would you believe rich industrialists and fashion celebrities to be mass murderers? No I guess not But the book asks us to Add to it a rabid fox A hungry hyaena Hunting wild animals in the heart of Denmark? Come on man Be seriousThe novel reads pretty well for about 300 pages and then it deteriorates into a totally ridiculous mess of utterly contrived fast paced action of the worst Hollywood variety This is globalization of rubbish This is crap on the order of Da Vinci CodeThree and a half stars for the first 300 pages Zero stars for the last 100 pages What an utter waste of human talent I am hesitant to read any stuff from this authorTwo stars
