Review

Praise for Jussi Adler-Olsen and the Department Q novels:
"Adler-Olsen merges story lines...with ingenious aplomb, effortlessly mixing hilarities with horrors...This crime fiction tour de force could only have been devised by an author who can even turn stomach flu into a belly laugh."
-- "Publishers Weekly "(starred review) on "The Purity of Vengeance"
"[A] sordid tale... inspired by actual events during a dark period of Danish history. Ah, but there is more, so much more in this frenzied thriller..."
-- "The New York Times Book Review "on" The Purity of Vengeance"
"When your series relies on cold cases, it's not always easy to craft plots that have both historical interest and an air of urgency, but it's something Adler-Olsen is very good at."
-- "Booklist "on""The Purity of Vengeance""
"This series has enough twists to captivate contemporary mystery readers and enough substance and background to entertain readers with historical and literary tastes."
--"Library Journal "(starred review)
"Plan on putting everything else in your life on hold if you pick up this book."
-- "The Oregonian "on "The Keeper of Lost Causes"


Praise for THE ALPHABET HOUSE
"Adler-Olsen meticulously constructs the Alphabet House...and the stomach-turning evils of Nazi culture to create a pitch-perfect thriller atmosphere."
-- "Booklist"
"This is a suspense/thriller to beat them all. Not only does it offer action, but readers will start waiting for the rabbit to jump out of the hat and change everything."
-- "Suspense Magazine"
