Product Details


“Christmas is the holiday fast approaching in Danish author Jussi Adler-Olsen’s The Shadow Murders, translated by William Frost. But it might as well be Halloween, for all the ghoulish deeds and wicked fiends the book contains.”
Wall Street Journal

“This nail-biter offers the best of everything Department Q thrillers promise: compelling team rapport, boots-on-the-ground detection, masterful story construction, and a cliffhanger ending.”
Booklist (starred)

“Opening teases don’t get much more tantalizing than in bestseller Adler-Olsen’s stellar ninth Department Q novel featuring Copenhagen’s cold-case division…. The climax lives up to the promise of the brilliant opening, cleverly connecting all the plotlines.”
Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Every character seemed to come alive…. This police procedural and crime thriller has a stunning and deeply involved plot. The twists and turns will keep readers highly engaged and leads to an action-filled and emotional conclusion.”
Mystery and Suspense Magazine

“Award-winning author Jussi Adler-Olsen delivers another spellbinding thriller, The Shadow Murders, the ninth installment in his popular Department Q series… Readers will find it hard to put the book down because it is so intense, compelling and well done on every level.”
Book Reporter

The Shadow Murders is a big, complex creation…. [Adler-Olsen] is an elite writer among a field of exciting Scandinavian suspense writers.”
—New York Journal of Books
