    I guess I am now officially hooked on this series I love the setting in Denmark and the way the Danish place names roll off the tongue I really enjoy all of the characters and I was pleased to see in this book that Hardy has achieved some small improvements in his lifeThe Hanging Girl opens in a very dramatic fashion although I was unable to visualise how the hanging part was actually achieved I know it was explained later but I still couldn't come to grips with it Anyway it was dramatic and pictorial and really set the scene for the rest of the bookThere was a lot of good painstaking police work some gruesome deaths and a few near death experiences but everything came good in the end with Assad and Carl becoming closer friends than before We are steadily inching towards some kind of explanation of Assad's real life story I am looking forward to that

    Series just gets better I thought I had it figured out but I was very wrong Lots of twists in this Really good reading I like how Adle Olsen uses humor with his characters and how he gives a glimpse of Danish life thru his writings If you hadn't read the others in the series I'd say start at the beginning with The Keeper of Lost Causes It helps with some of the support characters and also why Carl is the way he is Highly recommend

    'Are you actually aware why there are camels in the desert and no giraffes?' asked Assad 'The answer is simple If there were giraffes in the desert they'd die of sorrow''Aha And why's that?''Because they're so tall they'd know that there was just endless sand as far as the eye could see Fortunately for the camel it doesn't know this so it trudges on assuming that an oasis is just around the corner'Carl nodded 'I understand You feel like a giraffe in the desert right?''Yes a bit Just right now'Bless Assad and all of his camel analogiesI really do immensely enjoy this series Crotchety old Carl who grudgingly takes on cases when he'd much rather be napping in between cigarettes with his feet up on the desk The uiet and strange Assad who has a camel related saying for any situation Crazy old Rose who has a uick temper and strong stubborn streak Even slimy Gordon who is slowly working his way into the team I love the way they all work together I love how Carl's reluctance is completely ignored by his subordinatesThis time they're forced to take over an old unsolved hit and run case that left a girl hanging in a tree It leads the gang to a spiritual cult organisation that we're given inside info on through the viewpoint of the cult organisation leader's right hand woman The split view as always keeps things interesting because you're pretty sure you know what happened but it's still vague enough to keep you guessing There were some really fascinating characters built into this one and as a spiritual person I was particularly fascinated by the ideas and theories and the way the organisation operated I mean spiritualism is one thing but blindly following the ideas of another is a little scary So the story angle was fascinating and hooked me slightly than the previous booksThe police work is always fun and while I did lose track a little of who was who the writing seems to expect that and reminds you each time a minor character is re introduced It's a fairly lengthy novel at 600 pages but there's plenty to keep the story moving and keep you invested in what's happeningSix books in I still don't know if the brilliantly direct writing is genuine or a by product of the translation but either way I thoroughly enjoy it It can be really vague at times but Carl is so snappy and sarcastic and his little comments peppered throughout are a lot of fun Add to that Assad's endless optimism and enthusiasm and his imperfect English Danish and it makes for rather creative and enjoyable interactions I love the way these two work together 'Something fishy? I don't always understand what you are talking about Carl What are they doing with the fish?'We also get another minor glimpse at the progress of the case that started it all the shooting that killed one of Carl's colleagues and left the other permanently paralysed Hardy does make a brief appearance and it's uite symbolic to realise how slow that case is progressing in parallel to the cases that have been solved so far throughout the series I'm really pleased to give this series another 4 star rating These books are always so much fun to read with the uniue characters fun snappy dialogue and detailed stories The research that must go into these books is astoundingHighly recommend this one to others continuing the series and if you've not been introduced to Carl and the Department gang I highly recommend you pick up a copy of Mercy and get started

    After reading the five first books of the series during the last months I was very excited to finally read the next installment and I really enjoyed this book The plot might not have been that gripping than other parts of this series but however I liked the contextsetting a lot Like usual Jussi Adler Olsen managed to create great characters After thinking that I already knew who the murderer war the ending came as uite a surprise to me The twists were well done and felt real Such a tragic story; if all those misunderstanding hadn't been a lot of sorrow could have been avoided I'm still in love with the exceptional and totally crazy investigator team A few details about Assad's past are revealed but the full picture still needs to be uncovered I can't wait for the next part 4 stars

    So ignoring one friend who gave this a one For shame ;Starting in the present we have the trio invited to help on a case which they Carl ignores only for a seuence of events thereafter to bring them front centre on the case and obliged to solve itAs usual the story works along the lines of converging timelines one in the present the other from the past Its a method ive come to enjoy with the trio as always there uirks interactions make for a mostly entertaining read I say mostly as I did find at times it went on a little too long with some scenes for little gain with Rose Assad seemingly having to chime in As I got further into the book I actually found myself enjoying the “other” timeline much then the trio’s have to admit to drifting a little during the trio’s “investigation” where it was office based in the mid sections The Rose Assad development backstory seems to have died completely or is so slow its not worth doing I mean department has been going 7 years nowThe ending is lively enough as everything comes together there’s a fair few surprises however All in all not the strongest of outing’s in the series certainly not a patch on the Marco effect which was the prior in the series the best for me so its my first 3 35 stars rounded down to 3 for this series with a dip in form for mePS I can see why my GR friend gave this a one now

    It's been awhile since a man kept me up all night reading Geez what were YOU thinking I was talking about? This was the first Department book that I've read but it definitely won't be the last I really liked police officers Carl and Assadthe mystery just kept getting darker and there were just enough twists to keep me wanting Excellent read

    Adler Olsen's sixth book featuring Carl Morck's Department cold case team A pleading call from a country patrolman is ignored by Carl so he commits suicide at his retirement ceremony to draw attention to the case of Alberte Goldschmid who was found dead hanging in a tree by the patrolman which haunted him Rose shames Carl into taking the case and Assad provides his usual enthusiastic support Meanwhile there is a cult leader using his charm to seduce women while his #2 tries to win his love Bad formula The two stories are destined to collide but not formulaic at all
