Publisher's Summary

In the middle of a hard-won morning nap in the basement of police headquarters, Carl Mørck, head of Department Q, receives a call from a colleague working on the Danish island of Bornholm.
Carl is dismissive at first, but then he receives some shocking news. Carl then has no choice but to lead Department Q into the tragic cold case of a vivacious 17-year-old girl who vanished from school, only to be found dead hanging high up in a tree.
The investigation will take them from the remote island of Bornholm to a hidden cult, where Carl and his assistants must stop a string of new murders by a skilled manipulator who refuses to let anything - or anyone - get in the way.

I love the department Q books but for me, this book was seriously let down by the choice of narrator. Don't know why Jussi has gone with a different narrator from the previous books but not a good choice. I won't be listening to any future department Q books if Graeme Malcolm is going to be the narrator. Bring back Steven Pacey.

I have absolutely loved every Dept Q book, the characters were brought alive by Steven Pacey and I was genuinely so excited to see another in the series. I was a little perturbed that the narrator was different but with open mind gave it a go...

Why..... Just why did anyone listen to this guy and think Ahhh he'll follow nicely in Steven Paceys footsteps?????

Im struggling to get past chapter 7 - there's no life to the narration, an awful sing song voice with inflections at the end of words and sentences that shouldn't be there... No distinct characters, Karl and Rose just blend into the background and my favourite Assad has no enthusiasm no wit no comedy value anymore...

Ruined absolutely ruined by the narrator (who sounds better suited to children's books) GUTTED!!!
