Editorial Reviews

Review

“Scandinavian crime novels don’t get much darker than Jussi Adler-Olsen’s Department Q police procedurals.” 
Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review

“[S]atisfyingly dark, both in tone and content...an undeniable page-turner.”
Publishers Weekly

“[R]iveting … All of the Department Q books contain dark humor, high satire, social commentary—not always politically correct—and grand villains, with The Scarred Woman being no exception.”
BookReporter

“[M]esmerizing … The cleverly devised plot paints a fascinating tale of murder and mayhem with a touch of witty and subtle humor.” 
Fresh Fiction 

“You’ll be desperate to figure out the identity of the scarred woman as the suspense drives toward a deadly and at times comical conclusion.”
Associated Press

“The novel is eerily timely… [and] the relationship and banter between Carl and his associate Assad, with Assad's ‘linguistic blunders,’ continue to elicit chuckles. Adler-Olsen is deadly serious, though, and compassionate when it comes to poor, traumatized Rose. She may have emotional scars but her friends have got her back.”
Shelf Awareness

“The legions of readers still enjoying the Millennium books will devour this seventh in a series starring the officers of Copenhagen’s cold-case unit, Department Q.” 
Booklist

“Filled with dark humor and tight plotting. … Highly recommended.”
Spinetingler Magazine

“Highly recommended as dark literature written with beauty and class.”
The Suspense Is Thrilling Me Blog

“[A] superbly constructed multi-layered mystery.” 
Murder, Mayhem, and More 

Praise for Jussi Adler-Olsen's Department Q series

“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 

“If you like the dark humor, wisecracking, and layered betrayals of Raymond Chandler, then read Adler-Olsen’s Department Q series.”
—Men's Journal

“Thrilling, clever, and driven by a rough-hewn protagonist.” 
Paste Magazine

“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 

“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)

“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)

“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
