Mystery Book Group discusses The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen

Mystery Book Group discusses The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen

Meeting Room A
Wed, 06/05/2019 - 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Sequoya's Mystery Book Group hosts a discussion of The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen. Carl Mørck used to be one of Copenhagen's best homicide detectives. Then a hail of bullets destroyed the lives of two fellow cops, and Carl--who didn't draw his weapon--blames himself. So a promotion to department head is the last thing he expects. But Department Q is a department of one, and Carl's got only a stack of Copenhagen's coldest cases for company. His colleagues snicker, but Carl may have the last laugh, because one file keeps nagging at him: a liberal politician vanished five years earlier and is presumed dead. But she isn't dead...yet.

Join us for a book discussion of titles in the mystery genre. New members are always welcome. The next title will be available for pick-up following the discussion, with extra copies available at the Ask Here desk while supplies last.
