9780142196830: The Absent One: A Department Q Novel

Jussi Adler-Olsen's Disgrace is the stunning follow up to Top Ten bestseller Mercy.

Kimmie's home is on the streets of Copenhagen. To live, she must steal. She has learned to avoid the police and never to stay in one place for long. But now others are trying to find her. And they won't rest until she has stopped moving - for good.

Detective Carl Mørck of Department Q, the cold cases division, has received a file concerning the brutal murder of a brother and sister twenty years earlier. A group of boarding school students were the suspects at the time - until one of their number confessed and was convicted. So why is the file of a closed case on Carl's desk? Who put it there? Who believes the case is not solved?

Carl wants to talk to Kimmie, but someone else is also asking questions about her. They know she carries secrets certain powerful people want to stay buried deep. But Kimmie has one of her own. It's the biggest secret of them all.

And she can't wait to share it . . .

Disgrace is the second terrifying episode in the Department Q series, following the No. 1 international bestseller, Mercy. The darkness continues with Redemption, available from Penguin in April 2013.
