Mystery & Suspense • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Guilt-ridden Deputy Detective Superintendent Carl Mørck survived a vicious attack on his homicide team, which took the life of one colleague and paralyzed another. Narrator Erik Davies cleverly delivers the story of Mørck’s new life. He’s been relegated to the basement as the head of Department Q, which revives cold cases that have been shelved for years. The first to catch Carl’s eye is that of a Parliamentarian who disappeared without a trace five years before, the only witness her brain-injured brother. Davies moves eloquently through various characters and accents—from Mørck’s surly Danish to his show-stealing assistant’s Syrian. Ultimately, Davies delivers a nuanced and addictive performance that is a must-listen for fans of Scandinavian mysteries. K.O. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2011]
