Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.
In The Keeper of Lost Causes, Jussi Adler-Olsen introduced
Detective Carl Mørck, a deeply flawed, brilliant detective newly
assigned to run Department Q, the home of Copenhagen’s coldest cases.
The result wasn’t what Mørck—or readers—expected, but by the opening of
Adler-Olsen’s shocking, fast-paced follow-up, Mørck is satisfied with
the notion of picking up long-cold leads. So he’s naturally intrigued
when a closed case lands on his desk: A brother and sister were brutally
murdered two decades earlier, and one of the suspects—part of a group
of privileged boarding-school students—confessed and was convicted.
once Mørck reopens the files, it becomes clear that all is not what it
seems. Looking into the supposedly solved case leads him to Kimmie, a
woman living on the streets, stealing to survive. Kimmie has mastered
evading the police, but now they aren’t the only ones looking for her.
Because Kimmie has secrets that certain influential individuals would
kill to keep buried . . . as well as one of her own that could turn
everything on its head.
I loved Keeper of Lost Causes and have already pre-ordered this novel. Can't wait for August 21, 2012.
