About the Book: Mercy
"Mercy" by Jussi Adler-Olsen is Scandinavias new bestselling crime writing
sensation. At first the prisoner scratches at the walls until her fingers bleed.
But there is no escaping the room. With no way of measuring time, her days,
weeks, months go unrecorded. She vows not go mad. She will not give her captors
the satisfaction. She will die first. Copenhagen detective Carl Morck has been
taken off homicide to run a newly created department for unsolved crimes. His
first case concerns Merete Lynggaard, who vanished five years ago. Everyone says
shes dead. Everyone says its a waste of time. He thinks theyre right.
