I know some consider it weird to read so many books at one time, but none of them are anywhere near similar in genre and yet all of them capture my attention so perfectly, and some I don’t want to finish.

The suspense of Adler-Olsen’s work keeps me flipping the pages but yet not wanting to get to the end at times, because it’ll all be over.

The Austen Escape is a novel that enriches my love for all things Jane Austen.

(Un)Masked by Anyta Sunday and Andy Gallo is suspenseful in it’s own right, with beautiful language within.

Beauty is all that comes to mind with the cover and pages of Wild Beauty.

Author: Jussi Adler-Olsen

Rating: Four freakouts out of five.

Warning: Dark, violent.


In The Keeper of Lost Causes, Jussi Adler-Olsen introduced Detective Carl Mørck, a deeply flawed, brilliant detective newly assigned to run Department Q, the home of Copenhagen’s coldest cases

. The result wasn’t what Mørck—or readers—expected, but by the opening of Adler-Olsen’s shocking, fast-paced follow-up, Mørck is satisfied with the notion of picking up long-cold leads.

So he’s naturally intrigued when a closed case lands on his desk: A brother and sister were brutally murdered two decades earlier, and one of the suspects—part of a group of privileged boarding-school students—confessed and was convicted. B

Kimmie has mastered evading the police, but now they aren’t the only ones looking for her. Because Kimmie has secrets that certain influential individuals would kill to keep buried . . . as well as one of her own that could turn everything on its head.
