Publisher's Summary

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?

Best Department Q yet!

The best in the Department Q series so far. Not as horrific as the first novel and not as bloated as the second installment. A good mix between humour and tension as we revisit the quirky characters of the Department Q team, some of whom themselves are shrouded in mystery. An old message, written in blood, is found in a bottle floating off the coast of Scotland. Scottish forensics discovers the message is in Danish and the bottle is sent to the Copenhagen Police, where it lands on the large pile of cold cases languishing in Department Q. While the reader knows the back story of the message and that the killer is still at large, the tension builds as the Department Q team slowly piece the story surrounding the message together. The listener waits with abated breath for the team to connect the dots and make the breakthrough and when it happens the pace is taken up a notch with a very tense race against time. An excellent third installment to a very enjoyable series. As always Steven Pacey's narration is superb. I must have made quite a spectacle of myself in traffic, jumping up and down in the car, shouting and waving my fists at the radio! Loved listening to this one.

Wow, the best of department Q!!!

After "Mercy" and "Disgrace" this is the third book from Adler-Olsen on department Q and to me it is the best (so far... were are the next ones?). After the second book I wasn't 100% sure whether I would like this, because it felt like the author just tried too much, but here I was hooked nearly from the start. The story was good, the characters are totally great (but kind of crazy) and I couldn't stop listening. Usually when crime stories are this long I get a little bored with it and wait on the outcome, not in this case. The tension kept building up and up.... and not because of twist and turns that were totally unlikely. If you liked the first two books in the series you just have to listen to this! Rose,Assad, Carl and the other characters from the first books get better and better...
