The downloadable, digital audiobook edition of Jussi Adler-Olsen’s sensational new thriller, read by the actor Steven Pacey.
Two boys, brothers, wake tied and bound in a boathouse by the sea. Their kidnapper has gone, but soon he will return. Their bonds are inescapable.
But there is a bottle and tar to seal it. Paper and a splinter for writing; blood for ink. A message begging for help.
In Copenhagen’s cold cases division Carl Morck has received a bottle. It holds an old and decayed message, written in blood. It is a cry for help from two boys. Is it real? Who are they and why weren’t they reported missing? Can they possibly still be alive?

"Scandinavian thriller with laughs!"
Great story - but the humour in this book really made it stand out from the usual murder mystery genre - great characters
"Great narration, baggy story"
I love this series but this one gets slow in the middle and is helped by a very convenient coincidence. It's not as good as the first but is better than the second (which has an even bigger coincidence at its heart). Despite the lull in the middle, when it gets going again it rattles along. We also learn enticing new morsels about Assad and Rose that I really hope develop more as the series goes on. Steven Pacey is brilliant.
"Definitely worth listening to."
Brilliant, captivating and with a touch of humour. Great story teller. The contrasting characters of the detective and his assistants brings humour into the story about tracking down a very gruesome serial killer.
dark gritty story line.
How 1 man can be changed by religion.
as good as before.
made me think how sad some peoples lives are.
Wont know what to do when i finish books 4 & 5.
Great performance by Stephen Pacey.. Really enjoyed this story, it moved well with some good characters. Would recommend this book.
Brilliant series keeps you listening. The characters and storyline get better with each book (listened out of sequence but it didn't matter) would highly recommend to all listeners
Another great story in the series. Plenty of twists and turns and fast-paced. Another sleepless night waiting for the denouement at the story finale.
I'm a big fan of jussi Adler -Olsen books and Steven Pacey brings these books to life,
I look forward to hearing the next book
Scandinavian thriller that is
amusing & intriguing .
It's very well read . I would recommend this audio book and look forward to another by same author.
"Love the whole series."
Not your typical crime series. The characters draw you in with their funny traits and the story is sufficiently entwined to remain interesting until the end.
