Praise for The Purity of Vengeance "[A] sordid tale...inspired by actual events during a dark period of Danish history. Ah, but there more, so much more in this frenzied thriller."--The New York Times Book Review "The Purity of Vengeance is an enjoyable and eye-opening way to learn about the real Scandinavia, a story so outrageous that not even the best mystery writer can make it up."--The Boston Globe "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 "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) "Another accomplished exercise in three-decker suspense."--Kirkus Reviews More Praise for Jussi Adler-Olsen's Department Q series "If you like the dark humor, wisecracking, and layered betrayals of Raymond Chandler, then read Adler-Olsen's Department Q series."--Men's Journal "A tense, pleasurable read."--USA Today "This book is not for the faint of heart, but for readers who enjoy dark humor and wisecracking heroes and heroines, you'll love Department Q."--Suspense Magazine "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 "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)
