    Jussi Adler-Olsen is Denmark's premier crime writer. His books routinely top the bestseller lists in northern Europe, and he's won just about every Nordic crime-writing award, including the prestigious Glass Key Award-also won by Henning Mankell, Stieg Larsson, and Jo Nesbo. Now, Dutton is thrilled to introduce him to America.

    If you could sum up The Keeper of Lost Causes in three words, what would they be?

    worth the hassle


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

    Not really on edge, but I kept thinking about the book when I wasn;t listening to it.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I actually found the accents rather fun, but it was hard to keep certain characters straight because of the similarities of tone.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    no - in fact it was how the main character gradually and grudgingly came into the case that held its charm. It was interesting that I cared more about the case at hand than the detective did for most of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought it was time to take a break from mysteries for a while - they were all starting to sound alike until I listened to this. The main character and the relationship between him and his assistant were just great. Looking forward to more from Dept Q.
