Reviews

Praise for A Conspiracy of Faith

"A shattering parable of honest individuals caught up in the corruption of our times."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Adler-Olsen's cast might seem like stock crime-fiction characters at first glance--the curmudgeonly detective, the flighty secretary, the suspiciously resourceful assistant--but in his hands they are unpredictable and entertaining. This series has enough twists to captivate contemporary mystery readers and enough substance and background to entertain readers with historical and literary tastes."--Library Journal (starred review) "[T]his mix of offbeat departmental politics, puzzling clues, and pulse pounding pursuit delivers the goods."--Booklist

More Praise for Jussi Adler-Olsen's Department Q series "If you like the dark humor, wisecracking, and layered betrayals of Raymond Chandler, then read Adler-Olsen's Department Q series."--Men's Journal "A tense, pleasurable read."--USA Today "[A] sordid tale...inspired by actual events during a dark period of Danish history. Ah, but there is more, so much more in this frenzied thriller."--The New York Times Book Review "This book is not for the faint of heart, but for readers who enjoy dark humor and wisecracking heroes and heroines, you'll love Department Q."--Suspense Magazine "It can be hard to distinguish Scandinavian crime writers--there are a lot of them, and their names have consonant clusters and umlauts and all that jazz--but Jussi Adler-Olsen is a name to know. In a crowded genre, Adler-Olsen is an outlier."--GQ.com "Adler-Olsen merges story lines...with ingenious aplomb, effortlessly mixing hilarities with horrors...This crime fiction tour de force could only have been devised by an author who can even turn stomach flu into a belly laugh."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "When your series relies on cold cases, it's not always easy to craft plots that have both historical interest and an air of urgency, but it's something Adler-Olsen is very good at."--Booklist
