The first book in the Department Q series. She scratched her fingertips on the smooth walls until they bled, and pounded her fists on the thick panes until she could no longer feel her hands. At least ten times she had fumbled her way to the steel door and stuck her fingernails in the crack to try to pry it open, but the door could not be budged, and the edge was sharp. Finally, when her nails started pulling away from the flesh of her fingers, she tumbled back onto the ice-cold floor, breathing hard

In 2011 the Danish production company, Zentropa and Nordisk Film, along with the German ZDF production house started discussions of adapting several screenplays based on Adler-Olsen’s books. They looked at a number of books, but fell on Adler-Olsen’s Danish series, Department Q. The production companies believed bringing this series to life would be the best choice due to the international success of the series. After the second book, The Pheasant Killers (2008) was released Zentropa acquired the movie rights to all of the books in the series.

The rare method of torturing the victim was unquestionably the centrepiece of the story. The excellent film version introduced me to the moody detective Carl Mørck, played excellently by Danish actor NIKOLAJ LIE KAAS and prompted me to pick up the book to get deeper into the story. Read it in English and then a second time in Norwegian. It was a tremendously satisfying read from start to finish of this intense police-crook story on vendetta. Certainly not for the faint-heart because it contains excruciating psychological and physical torture that made me squirm. I am quite puzzled with the choice of "Mercy" as the English translated title which is quite meaningless considering the story is all but merciless throughout. Cruel fate had no mercy striking the monsters with immense tragedy in their early lives that shaped them into revengeful blood thirsty monsters. These monsters themselves, in feeding their lust for vendetta, had no mercy for the victims or innocent bystanders. I much prefer the Danish/Norwegian title "Kvinnen i buret" or "The lady in the cage" because it describes the story excellently. The story is of course best read in Danish (or Norwegian as the written form is quite similar) like all books are best enjoyed in their original language. So with Mercy (Department Q Series Book 1), familiarity with Danish history, culture, lifestyle, geography and pathos go a long way to fully enjoy the genius of Adler-Olsen. Unfortunately, all translations as in this English version inevitably lose important nuances and many gems relevant in the Danish setting. I absolutely love Mercy (Department Q Series Book 1), my first crime novel by Danish author Adler-Olsen who paid great attention to details to give us a plot that was highly intelligent and unique, the characters were winsomely realistic be they the police detectives, the victims or the crooks. Despite the mostly sombre and heavy mood, there were some light moments of humor where Carl Mørck grappled with his dysfunctional marriage and incorrigible stepson wrecking havoc at home. Thankfully Carl gratefully had a reliable rent paying tenant called Morten, who loved opera and freely and lovingly volunteered making comfort food and home making service on a daily basis. Morten's playdo collection, audaciously borrowed without permisjon eventually lent valuable support to Carl in helping to uncover the bad guy in the story. Otherwise, much of the moronic fun were provided by the unlikely partners of Carl Mørck and Assad thrown unexpectedly together, whose backgrounds couldn't be more diverse and polarised, giving us comical confrontations while sussing each other out in the newly formed Department Q. There trust and admiration for each other were eventually forged after their harrowing life and death experience in solving their first case together. More so for Carl whose life was saved by the skin of his teeth when his quick thinking, stoic and resourceful assistant Assad came to his rescue. The special police department was a political initiative endorsed by the Danish parliament to reopen old unsolved cases that had attracted media and public great attention one time before they were unresolved and shelved. To establish credibility and to restore the good standing of the unpopular detective Carl Mørck, who was despised and abhorred by his colleagues, solving the all important first case "Woman in the pressure chamber" cannot be more critical on the line. And what a first case it was. A tale of 1extreme inhuman revenge, meticulously planned over a long period of time to torture the victim for a long five period since her abduction before exacting the most cruel form of execution. Adler-Olsen cleverly segmented his story into two different periods at the beginning before the two segments converged in the end to a nail biting finish. It was an incredible suspenseful, and emotionally beautiful ending of reunion and closure. The reader got so caught up with the characters in the book, that hot tears were shed in the end. Already a big fan of Scandinavian crime novels, I have read Norwegian and Swedish crime fictions by Larsson for his Blomkivst journalist , Nesbø for his alcoholic, insomniac, cheerless, Jim Bean addicted Harry Hole, and Staaleson for the physically abused Aquavit addicted Varg Veum. I love them all, each for their unique heroic and conscientious protagonist trying their utmost to rid the world of evil. Adler-Olsen with his creation or Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde "Carl Mørck", is now for me another fantastic Scandinavian crime fiction author, my first from Denmark.

I really liked the first 3/4 of this book, and at the beginning I thought it was as original within the crime/mystery genre as The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. However, I think the stereotypes and cliches of the psychopaths lets the novel down. The bad guy can only 'snarl' etc so many times before it gets repetitive. Having just finished the non-fiction text Lambs to the Slaughter about the psychopath Derek Percy, it is clear that psychopathic behavior is seldom clear cut. They are much more complex and difficult and this could have been portrayed much better here. But a great holiday reading book. I loved the two central characters - the grumpy and jaded detective and the migrant, Non-English-Speaking-Background assistant, who mangles the language with enthusiasm. These two characters really made this novel for me.

I just loved this book and couldn't put it down. The storyline is compelling and I really cared about the characters. I put this book right up there with Steig Larrsen's trilogy but there was not the problem getting into this storyline that people complained about with the Steig's series. The wonderful thing is - Carl and Asad will be back and I can't wait to join them on another wild ride. It was so easy to get my copy from Amazon and it even arrived with a book mark.

Having run out of Jo Nesbo novels, I was looking for something else. I cannot say the plotting or quality of Adler-Olsen's work is as good as Nesbo's, but this was only the first book so it may mature. I am also reading it in English, rather than the native Danish, so it may well have lost some things in the translation, including cultural nuances.
I certainly find it more difficult to empathise with the main character, Carl Morck, than Nesbo's Harry Hole - perhaps because he has so many unfiltered prejudices and I do not yet get a sense that at his core there is an essential goodness (something that shines from the troubled soul of Hole).
Anyway, I enjoyed the book enough to be reading the second in the series - so that says something

A fascinating read! I have read several of this author's works and liked them all, Somehow I missed the first Department Q. A well-crafted story that you can't let go of. Great characters, well-researched and a nicely-paced. Don't miss this one.

So glad I bought this, and will be reading all the others in this series as well. Translates very well to English and doesn't feel at all stilted or perhaps old fashioned as some European police procedurals can be. A great story that is well told and keeps you guessing, and another wonderful lead character in Carl Morck with a faithful side kick that is a little unexpected, but works brilliantly, very much looking forward to the rest of the series, if they are anything as good as the first novel, myself and the rest of the world are in for a treat !

Jussi Adler Olsen has done it all perfectly. Plot, characters, pace... Everything that is necessary for a great thriller is here. Even though I've figured the mystery out very soon -way before the revelation- it was still an amazing journey.

I really don't get why the entire series isn't translated into English yet... It is into German and the second book has just been released in Spanish... This series is made for success, can't wait to read the next one!
This book was recommended by a Quilting friend ! who read it in dutch ( I live in the Flemish country of Belgium ), I assume the book is translated in many languages I loved the book ,you are just hooked by the story , Carl Mørk and Assad,a rather unusual team,but it works
So I purchased the 4 other books on my Kindle,apparently there is a 6th one publisded
Passed the title to a friend who has also a Kindle, and loved it too ! intends to order the other ones,,what better publicity can you have than to pass it on to friends or relatives who love to read ?
