Forgive me for being a bit redundant and repetitive with my reviews of the Dept Q series. Time won't permit me to give each book it's due...
Dept Q is an underfunded department specializing in cold cases. The government has given it top priority, but the police chief gives it litte thought. The department is manned by 3 misfits.
Carl Mork is the lead man, by far the best detective on the entire force, but he is also insubordinate, impossible to work with and impulsive. No one likes him or wants to work with him. So his chief puts him the newly formed Department Q.
Assad is a real mystery figure. He's Syrian, speaks poor English, (this was translated from Norwegian.), and no one seems to know how he came to be employed at all. They don't have a personnel file on him, no one has ever seen the family he speaks of, and no one seems to know where he lives.
Rose is another strange character. She works when she feels like it, is at least Morks equal with insubordination, she wears her emotions on her sleeve, and is just maybe a bit mentally ill.
Carl Mork , Rose and Assad have a charisma and synergy that makes you want see them go at it for years to come. They are smart, resourceful, mysterious, ruthless and hilarious.
I love the entire series.

This is the 3rd Department Q and I have to say I just love these books and this one is the best so far.
I love the characters and Assad has to be the most entertaining sidekick in all the mystery/thrillers I enjoyed in a long time.
You can read the overview of the book to get the thrust of the story. I will tell you the pacing, narration and story keep you wanting more. This one is hard to stop listening too.
How long do I have to wait for the next Department Q? I'm hooked!
