1 Adler-Olsen, JussiThe Absent One
New York Dutton 2012 0525952896 / 9780525952893 First U.S. Edition Soft Cover Near Fine Advance Uncorrected Proof 
Translated by K.E. Semmel. Originally published in English in the UK in 2012 under the title "Disgrace." Illustrated wraps. 403 pages. ~ In very nearly fine condition, with very slight rubbing at head/tail of spine. ~~ Another gripping thriller by the Glass Key Award-winning author and Denmark's #1 crime writer. ~ This is the second title in Adler-Olsen's 'Department Q' series featuring "flawed but brilliant" Copenhagen detective Carl Mørck, who has been demoted to the investigation of cold cases in Department Q, consisting only of him and his sidekick Assad. In this installment, a third team member, Rose, also flawed, joins them to investigate the brutal murder of a brother and sister twenty years earlier. Though a suspect confessed and is serving time, Carl realizes there is more to the story, involving a mysterious and evasive woman living on the streets, who is guarding some dark secrets. Adler-Olsen has been called the Danish equivalent to Nordic noir writers Steig Larssen and Jo Nesbo, and is being hailed as one of the top international suspense writers. ~ This Advance Reader Copy has the publisher promotional materials laid in.

Published in the UK under the title "Mercy" (2011) and translated by Lisa Hartman, a pen name of Tiina Nunnally, who has received acclaim for her masterful translations of Danish, Norwegian and Swedish literature and who is credited with the revival of Sigrid Undset's classic trilogy "Kristin Lavransdatter" because of her superior translation. ~ This international bestseller is the first title in Adler-Olsen's 'Department Q' series featuring Copenhagen detective Carl Mørck, who after a troubling incident has been demoted to the investigation of cold cases in the one-man Department Q.
