by Jussi Adler-Olsen

Practise your speed-reading in this fast-paced, page turner as you launch from one chapter to another without a break. A claustrophobic, disturbing, Scandinavian crime thriller, full of tension and intrigue, counterbalanced by a maverick detective and his amusing Syrian refugee assistant.


After she’d sat there so long that her body had grown stiff and her senses were dulled, she got to her feet and went over to the opposite corner to squat down and pee. She needed to remember which corner she had used. One corner as a toilet. One where she sat and waited by the door, and one where she would sleep. The smell of urine was strong in the desolate cage.
