The Absent One

Jussi Adler-Olsen 

I just finished reading an English translation of The Absent One by Danish author, Jussi Adler-Olsen. In other parts of the world, the book is sold under the title, The Pheasant Killers.

 In the second book of the Department Q series, Detective Carl Morck is presented with a case closed 20 years before. He becomes intrigued when his superiors order him to drop the case. 

 I like the imperfections of the main character and his peculiar assistant, Assad. Some of the scenes are very violent, and I skipped a few pages. Still, the story is carefully thought out with no unneeded parts.
