A CONSPIRACY OF FAITH

Author:  Jussi Alder-Olsen
Genre:  Thriller, Department Q #3
Published:  2013
Personal Rating:  4.25/5 (very good +)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/
Graeme Malcolm
Yearly Count:  68


Carl Morck and his two assistants are presented with a message in a bottle.  The bottle was discovered approximately 10 years ago, so they are uncertain as to the validity of the message, but they slowly begin to gather clues.  They also investigate a series of arsons that leave a corpse in the ashes at each scene. 

I really like this author's style.  He keeps me engaged in all aspects of the story, including the characters. They are quite quirky, but that's what makes Department Q so interesting.  They keep me wondering.  I would like to have a few answers though, instead of just adding more craziness to each book.

The plot was clever, and as always, I love the depth that Alder-Olsen brings to his thrillers.  I don't remember as much humor in this one, but it was there.  Every book in this series has been a success for me.  Now I'm eagerly awaiting #4.

  4. I didn't read much of this beyond your rating because I haven't it yet. I got a print copy of the UK edition as well as an egalley so the time constraint of the egalley isn't as strict. I do want to read it soon though. Good to know the series is holding up.

    1. SuziQoregon ~ This is one of my favorite series. I didn't get an egalley this time around. :( However, I was happy to listen to it. The narrator does a great job.
