We all know how picky I am when it comes to jumping into the middle of a long running series while I appreciate books that have the feel of a standalone I also immensely enjoy the backstory of reoccurring characters and the development of their personalities and individual storylines That said Abby Crime By The Book assured me I would survive reading this particular novel out of order as I trust all of her recommendations I decided to commit to reading The Scarred Woman and see if it left me wanting to o back and fill myself in with the first 6 novels in the series Spoiler Alert it did While many fellow readers Hunter Kiss gasped anduffawed at my choice to skip ahead and start where I did I have to say that it was an abnormally satisfying experience Yes I m dying to Doctor Sleep go back to the beginning just let me be me but all in all it worked so well as a standaloneOne of the many reasons I ve had this series on my radar is the fact that I ve adored all the designsracing the US covers and TSW may be my favorite one to date I have serious heart eyes for the color Karma's A Sexy Bitch: Choose Your Own Erotic Fantasy Adventure green Color me relieved when I discovered that the writing was just as fascinating as the front that I so clearly judged Novels that simultaneously contain a standalone case and a continuing backstory of the main characters will always be my storytelling form of choice I have such high respect for authors who can pull this off as flawlessly as Jussi Adler Olsen which is clearly amongst the many reasons why he is so highly esteemed internationally While I don t want to touch on the plot in detail I was swept away to another world particularly with the personal details surrounding Rose and her past Even during the uglier moments the author crafted a breathtaking beauty into the narrative just with the words he chose If you enjoy reading translations the Department series is one you ll want to add to your list as it s one of the best english translations I ve read yetAgain I can t really speak for the previous novels in the series unless you count my anxious excitement to read them as soon as possible but if they are anything like The Scarred Woman I m in for a serious treat Nordic crime fiction is aenre I ve Mythological Beasts Turned Me Gay: Three Book Collection: (Mythology Erotica) grown highly fond of over the past year and I m pleased as punch to be adding this author and series to my fastrowing list of international favorites At the moment I can t think of another author who writes uite like this but if you re a fan of the This All Encompassing Trip: Chasing Pearl Jam Around The World genre ineneral you really should jump on the Jussi train Highly recommended as dark literature written with beauty and class I think we ll be seeing the D series Scouts going on for many years to comeMany thanks to the publisher for providing my copy it was a pleasure to provide my honest thoughts here My first GRiveaway winThe Scandi Nordic series Department has been an enjoyable one Some are better than others but historically most of the books are The Organ Grinders good Unfortunately the latest translation was a disappointment This is a police crime series where Department works cold cases The characters all have their idiosyncrasies which are entertaining The Scarred Woman is about four young women using the social services system to live a life of leisure They use the state s money to buy clothes make up etc and house their boyfriends They are extremely selfish It s all about them and to hell with anyone else Despicable creatures The plot which has their social services contact deciding to pick them off is too unrealistic for meThanks to the publisher Dutton Books for theiveaway3 out of 5 stars Two or three stars is my uestion This is the 7th book in the Department series by Jussi Adler Olsen This whole series has been a solid four stars for me so I was surprised I didn t care for this one It never rabbed me It had less mystery and it was about Rose I just wasn t taken hostage like I ve come to expect from this author Three stars seems enerous I ll The Complete Idiot's Guide to Detoxing Your Body go with two I always loved his books They count to my favorites but now I have to say that this story wasn t asood as the previous books I have to say it was catchy and very intense But it was a bit too much What i mean is Carl Mr ck tried to solve five different cases and was a bit too much What i mean is Carl Mr ck tried to solve five different cases and have all been connected to each other It wasn t the typical story where he starts to review and old case which is somehow connected to the present It didn t leave enough room for the individual characters In my opinion the characters weren t deep enough and there have been too many side rolls Too many people who were affected somehow I was a little bit disappointed that they didn t pay attention to the Silver in the Wood grandfathers past which could have been very interesting But instead this case was closed very uickly and very shortly All in all I d say it was aood story but too superficial with too many poorly described characters Thank you Penguin Random House for the ARCThis is the first book that I have read in this series The author took a roup of plot lines and tied them together in one thrilling story He took themes such as benefits fraud mental illness and retribution to a new level The author also dealt with a bit of the dark past of WWII But I won t say what it is because it will spoil the story linei because it will spoil the story lineI read other Scandinavian authors before and because of this book I will keep on reading even 35 starsDetective Carl M rck is the head of

Ues I thought the author did a remarkable job of tackling a sensitive subject with delicacy and sensitivity as he explored Rose s mental health Her illness puts extra strain on her fellow team members and adds an additional layer to the story One of the biggest surprises here for me at least was how funny this book was It s definitely not a comedy or anything and it s still very dark but there was a ton of humor added Carl himself has a very dry wit and ironic sense of humor Assad mangles several common phrases and Carl is always uick to correct him and every time I snorted with laughter It made Assad so adorable and endearing though there is a sense of mystery surround his background that I m hoping is explored further in the next book These characters are extremely well drawn and well considered you can tell that Adler Olsen did his homework I do want to point out that this is a rather dense read with heavy themes such as mental illness benefit fraud prostitution etc It was just under five hundred pages but I never felt like it was overdone at all It s set in Denmark and the sense of place is excellent having never been there myself I felt like I had a strong rasp of what it s like there and how it would feel to live there Since I didn t end up having the time to read the first six books before I jumped into this one I was a tad apprehensive about forming a connection to the characters but I shouldn t have worried I will be oing backwards and reading some of the earlier books though since I enjoyed this one so much I just wanted to encourage those of you who may be hesitant to start with the seventh book do it I don t think you ll regret it All of my reviews can be found on wwwnovelgossipcom 35This book is part of an on oing series starring Detective Carl M rck of Department In this novel woman are murdered and what appears at the beginning to be disconnected cases are related by one of the characters The plot involves murder conniving police procedural and a team of likable police detectives The book is told from the alternating point of views of its characters including Detective Carl Assad Rose and others This was my first book by the author and you do not have to read the previous books in the series to be able to enjoy this one This book reminded me of non fantasy thrillers by Stephen King specially Mr Mercedes It s dark and can be described as an Scandinavian noir The novel was a bit long and I felt that some sections could have been excluded Overall I liked the book and recommend it to all those who enjoy thrillers Review posted on blog Thanks to First To Read the author and the publisher for providing me with a copy of this publication in exchange for an honest review Oh my lord this was so tangled And I loved itAs with the previous books in the series we re trying to solve several cases all at once so it never ets boring This time there are a ton of psychopaths to deal with and don T Hold Me To It hold me to it is Carl actually starting to mellow a little BE WARNED This review contains minor spoilers for the previous books in the seriesFirst we ve ot the cold case which bears striking resemblance to a new case a murdered woman skull caved in by an unidentified object Then you ve Essential Andhra Cookbook: With Hyderabadi and Telengana Specialities got Anneli who is a social worker having to deal with a bunch ofood for nothing women who are clearly not stable themselvesSo Carl Assad and friends are trying to solve the mystery while bodies continue turning up and meanwhile they re trying to figure out how to help Rose who is 100% losing the plot after the events of the last book She s not in a The Sorcerer's Apprentice good way and honestly it was the most heartbreaking part of this whole book for meThe camel cracks have been dialled back and there s lessrumbling from Carl and I think it s all out of respect for just how debilitating Rose s condition is They re her friends so they re really worried so there s a solemnity that hasn t been present in previous novels They have her back though and that really made me happy They just want her to be okay so they ll do whatever it takes to help her Good friends right thereThe split POVs are one of my favourite aspects of this series because we Eagle's Gate get insight into the minds of the killers and yet the full explanation is never revealed You know these people are criminals and they re doing horrible things but you still have to work out how their actions tie in to the investigation and how much they re actually responsible For the amount of detail in these books I always seem to stay firmly in the darkThe dynamic between the characters is always fun and as mentioned the team seems a tighter unit this time around as though they re being extra nice to each other to make up for Rose s absence It s really interesting too from the comedy of her having pretended to be one of her sisters to the sombre exploration of her background and just how not funny her situation isLike I said heartbreakingIt s not all depressing though as there s a nice tangled crime or six ish to sink your teeth into and once again you ll find yourself uestioning your own beliefs of right and wrong and how far you might o when you re pushed
too faranother solid
