From the brilliant Mercy [ a story that still sends a chill to my memory when I wake in the night ] Olsen has been one of my favourite stand out writers . I sometimes do not get some of the humour re race/ toilet jokes but maybe that is a Danish translation thing . Here I a really creepy story about revenge and supremacy and power . From the first scene when Nete attends a banquet with her husband and bumps into some one from her past that she doesnot want to see , I can feel a scream building in my throat . A marvellous thriller , very visual and with a shocking scene towards the end to keep me awake .

I love this series! I did find this one a bit different than the previous ones thus had a slow start but once I got into the plot it was great reading from then on. The difference here is that it isn't quite the same type of crime story/investigation. The reader knew what was going on as the narrative switched from the real-time events in the past of the crime being committed and the current events of the Carl's Q squad investigation. There's also a third narrative which goes even further back in history to the perpetrator's backstory. It isn't until quite close to the end that the reader is given a twist and a shock and we are finally surprised with something. While I do find the mystery of not knowing the perpetrator more exciting, I can also enjoy this type of presentation as well, as we watch how the police manage to track down the person we know who is hiding. I must say I also found the theme of this book, forced abortions and eugenics, highly thought-provoking. I am pro-life and with both of these issues no less prevalent in today's world than they were in the '50s was very well-pleased with how the subject was handled. The last book concentrated on Rose, giving us insight into her character. Now, this 4th book, concentrates on Hassad. He is such a mysterious character that we aren't exactly given any answers but we are shown more of him and his character allowing our thoughts and speculation to being that much closer to the truth. Originally, this was promoted as a four book series but with the ending of this book, it is obvious a sequel will be continuing the story and I would really hope we have many more yet to come!

After a slow start, 'Guilt' was gripping. For me, 'Mercy' is the best of this excellent series by a country mile and this offering is not in that league but still worth a read.

On the negative side, the shifting time lines and sheer number of characters was confusing and some of the language was stilted and unnatural: 'you must be sick in the noddle'.....'who else have you cavorted with?' But the subject matter - eugenics - was fascinating and the story well-told. The ending was a surprise, too.

3.5 stars from me.

I originally found the department Q books by mistake. I'm really glad I did
I love the way the plot unfolds and the different time zones comes together. The tension always builds as the past and present eventually collide
On the one hand the novels are quite dark but there is always plenty of humour, particularity between Mork. Assad and Rose.
Looking forward to the next one

The flashbacks and forwards were at first disconcerting but once you get userd to it, a story is revealed. the usual formulaic detective, a bit cynical, with personal problems etc. but it kept me gripped and wanting to read on despite sometimes being tired. Somewhat of a slightly improbable plot, maybe, or we hope, but with a nice twist at the end

Of all the Scandinavian thriller characters, Carl Morck and his odd team of Assad and Rose/Yrsa make for the most entertainingly accessible read. From mercy right through to Guilt, the character development coupled with a well placed thriller make the department q series unputdownable.
I hope the next one doesn't take too long to arrive!

All the emotions you could think of are in this book. Yet again Adler-Olsen has managed to bring all his characters to life not one is filler. I guess these injustices to women have happened everywhere. Morck is a brilliant anti hero a good man with some very amusing flaws.
Please write more!

Another enjoyable read about the misfits in department Q. Well constructed storylines, both past and present, making a very interesting cold case for Carl et al to solve. It also raises issues of treatment and tolerance of others, wether for reasons of race, education, social standing, etc
