Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Buried, the fifth installment of the Department Q series by Jussi Adler-Olsen, read by Steven Pacey.
More than three years ago, a civil servant vanished after returning from a work trip to Africa. Though he's missing and presumed dead, the man's family still want answers.
It is one of the many unsolved crimes left for Department Q, Denmark's cold-case unit headed up by Detective Carl Morck.
But what Carl doesn't know is that the key to the investigation is in Copenhagen. Fifteen-year-old Marco Jameson is tough, smart, and suspicious of police. Sleeping rough and hiding in the shadows is his way of life. But what is he running from - and what does he know worth killing him for?
Please note: This book has also been published under the alternate title The Marco Effect.

Be Forewarned....

Would you try another book from Jussi Adler-Olsen and/or Steven Pacey?

This book has ALREADY been offered under the title The Marco Effect. The story is great, and I love this author. So I was very excited to see a new title!! But sadly, it is new in title alone. I was so disappointed. If you haven't heard book 5, then definitely get this. But if you're an Adler-Olsen fan just check that you haven't already purchased book 5. (This isn't the first time I've run into this so of thing with audio books.)

Buried Marco Effect

If you could sum up Buried in three words, what would they be?

Marco Effect re-done

What other book might you compare Buried to and why?

Marco Effect

What does Steven Pacey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

His characters are very distinct

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?


Any additional comments?

This book is the same book as Marco Effect. Different name different narrator. It was interesting to see how the two narrator portrayed the characters. I downloaded this in error thinking that audible made a typo with it listed also being book fiveof dept Q. I could have returned it but did not. I am a fan of Dept Q. Very unique group of investigators. Assad and his camel colloquialisms make me laugh out loud.

More Than Just A Crime Book

What did you like most about Buried?

A crime thriller that made me laugh. a rare gem indeed.

Have you listened to any of Steven Pacey’s other performances? How does this one compare?

His narration for the different characters is always very clear and believable.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I could have happily listened from start to finish, and always found it very easy to pick up from where I last finished.

Any additional comments?

Cannot wait for the next book.

A roller-coaster of a book

I’ve listened to the first two books in the series and think your need to listen to at least book 1 first to get the most out of this fifth book, the early part of which is confusing enough as seemingly unconnected narrative threads take a long time to make sense. After a slow start the momentum of the novel builds into an unrelenting series of jeopardy scenes involving the young illegal immigrant, Marco, that went on a bit too long and made me hope for some variation in tone. I’d prefer less inter-personal sarcasm and quarrelling among the policemen and women who are becoming caricatures of irritable unpleasantness. My favourite character is Assad, the enigmatic dogsbody to Inspector Carl Morck, whose backstory from Iraq is slowly emerging.

Despite my criticisms it is a gripping thriller excellently narrated by Steven Pacy.

Loved it!

What do I love about the Department Q Series? The characters! We learn a little more each book about the main characters: Carl (or is it Karl?), Assad and Rose. We also learn a little about camels too! Steven Pacey's narration is just so good. I want to know more about Marco too. Each book in the series gets better and better. The story line is just a by-product! It's good and convoluted enough to be interesting, but for me, the strength lies in the development of the personalities. It's easy to grow attached to them! We found ourselves laughing out loud many times! Wonderful! Can't wait for the next one 😊.
