    Detective Inspector Sean Corrigan is not like other detectives. An unthinkable childhood left him with a fierce determination to protect the innocent. But it also marked him with an ability to identify the darkness in others - a darkness he recognizes still exists deep within himself. When a young man is found brutally murdered, Corrigan, responsible for South London's Murder Investigation Team, takes the case.

    Story

    There is no fact just fat imagination to pin a suspect from the start of the story (I thought I was reading some psychic stuff even though the leading man said he's no psychic explicitly). What if the guessing was wrong? Is this how police normally ruin people's lives when they guess wrong? I have deep problem with the protagonist that he relies on his own sense of violence so arrogantly and his sense is set to be accurate simply because the author did so. I hope the police will have special insight based on something much more concrete than DI Sean Corrigan's psychical vision.

    Also I find it rather ridiculous about the idea that people recognize their own kind, because really, nobody knows nobody. AND a policeman is NOT the same kind as a killer regardless they may share the same background. Simply because policemen do not murder innocent people as murderers do!

    The murders and murderer is somehow OK set up, the supporting characters are also lovable. I like the police work that has been described in the book (except DI Corrigan's "I know it's him" part). But this is not a acceptable story for me even as a debut.

    The narrator is good and it is part of the things that let me finishing the book.

    Detective Carl Morck has received a bottle that holds an old and decayed message written in blood. It's a cry for help from two young brothers, tied and bound in a boathouse by the sea. After floating in the ocean for years before turning up, the bottle sat forgotten, unopened, on a police department windowsill, before the seal was cracked and the gruesome message, written in Danish, was analyzed. Could it be real? Who are these boys, and why weren't they reported missing? Could they possibly still be alive?

    Story

    The story is the best of the first three books in the Department Q series. It is brilliantly plotted and kept me wondering what will happen next the whole time. The main characters are warm and funny. I am extremely happy to know that the first book in the series made into the big screen and they are currently shooting the second movie based on the second book. (haven't watch the movie yet because it is a Danish production, still waiting for the DVD and English subtitle.)

    Somehow I love the narrator of the first book (the Keeper of Lost Causes) best but this narrator is also OK. It is very annoying that they publish the books under different titles in UK and US (which is commonly done as far as I know but never understand) and three different narrators are involved in different books in different versions.

    Looking forward to listen to the fourth book.
