Flaskepost fra P - Jussi Adler-Olsen
Title: Flaskepost fra P (Message in a Bottle From P)
Author: Jussi Adler-Olsen
Genre: Suspense
Rating: 5/5
# pages: 486
Date read: December, 2009

In the small town of Wick in Scotland, a bottle had been forgotten in the old police station for many years. When somebody finally notices a letter hidden inside, possibly written in blood and with only the word "HELP" legible, the bottle travels to Denmark where policeman Carl Mørck and his assistant Assad discover a disturbing case about kidnapped siblings who've never been reported missing by their parents.

A true page-turner. It's almost 500 pages long but I simply couldn't put it down. It's well-written and the changing narrators fits the style and plot well and helps build the tension. I was absolutely mesmerised and found myself alternatively feeling pity for the perpetrator and being absolutely disgusted by him.

"Flaskepost fra P" is the third book in the series about Department Q, but though I could occasionally sense references to the previous books, they were in no way necessary in order to follow the plot of this one.

Brilliant crime novel. I hope it will eventually be translated to English so more people get to read it.
