    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....

    Where does The Absent One rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 25 percent


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Enjoyed the story development. Enough "I didn't see that coming" to keep me on my toes.


    Have you listened to any of Steven Pacey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. At first I missed Erik Davies but then fell into step with Pacey and enjoyed his narration as well


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Pretty much


    Any additional comments?

    Anxious for Adler-Olsen's third book translation. This is a lot like I felt reading Steig Larsson....but Adler-Olsen is a little less graphic!

    Photographer Clare Porterfield's once-happy marriage is coming apart, unraveling under the strain of a family tragedy. When she receives an invitation to direct an exhibition in her hometown of Galveston, Texas, she jumps at the chance to escape her grief and reconnect with the island she hasn't seen for ten years. There Clare will have the time and space to search for answers about her troubled past and her family's complicated relationship with the wealthy and influential Carraday family.

    How could the performance have been better?

    Speed up the narration. I had to speed up my listening equipment to keep from nodding off.
