A well written thriller. Also the personal story developing. Looking forward to the third book in this series
Third-party review
A bunch of upper-class twits start a "Clockwork Orange" club while they are in boarding school with tragic consequences for everyone. The Department Q folks must pick up the threads of crimes up to 20 years in the past to bring justice to Denmark. Good story - but not as riveting as the first book.
Third-party review
Like the first book, this one resolve almost by itself(meaning you could almost take out the detectives and it would still resolve itself), but it's fun to see Carl dealing with life in general :) Fun read, better pacing than the first book, interesting characters.
