The Keeper of Lost Causes, Jussi Ader-Olsen

The Keeper of Lost Causes, Jussi Adler-OlsenReading The Keeper of Lost Causes made me remember why I don’t read a lot of mysteries — I have no patience for whodunnit and at times, the book gets intense enough that I had to put it down and walk away for a bit (not ideal when you’re trying to read as many books as possible in a month). But it was also something quite different than what I normally read, and from the moment I picked it up, it grabbed me. I’ve yet to finish The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but this book reminds me of it because of the Danish setting and the torture elements, and now that I look closer, it even says on the back that “Stieg Larsson fans will be delighted.”

To be honest, I read this book at the beginning of the month, it’s just taken me that long to write this quick review. I still find myself thinking about the book — and not just because I have this post to write — so it’s definitely worth picking up. Also looking closer at the book jacket, it says that Alder-Olsen is the author of The Absent One, so maybe when I get through my current stack, that’ll be in my December reading pile next year.
