Reviews

Praise for The Alphabet House

"Adler-Olsen meticulously constructs The Alphabet House...and the stomach-turning evils of Nazi culture to create a pitch-perfect thriller atmosphere."--Booklist "This is a suspense/thriller to beat them all. Not only does it offer action, but readers will start waiting for the rabbit to jump out of the hat and change everything."--Suspense Magazine 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 "[A] sordid tale...inspired by actual events during a dark period of Danish history. Ah, but there is more, so much more in this frenzied thriller."--The New York Times Book Review "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 "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) "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) "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
