"The newspaper refers to her only as Victim 2117-the two thousand one hundred and seventeenth refugee to die in the Mediterranean Sea. But to three people, the unnamed victim is so much more, and the death sets off a chain of events that throws Department Q, Copenhagen's cold cases division led by Detective Carl Mørck, into a deeply dangerous-and deeply personal-case. A case that not only reveals dark secrets about the past, but has deadly implications for the future. For troubled Danish teen Alex, whose identity is hidden behind his computer screen, the death of Victim 2117 becomes a symbol of everything he resents and the perfect excuse to unleash his murderous impulses in real life. For Ghallib, one the most brutal tormentors from Abu Ghraib-Saddam Hussein's infamous prison-the death of Victim 2117 was the first step in a terrorist plot years in the making. And for Department Q's Assad, Victim 2117 is a link to his buried past-and the family he assumed was long dead. With the help of the Department Q squad-Carl, Rose, and Gordon-Assad must finally confront painful memories from his years in the Middle East in order to find and capture Ghallib. But with the clock ticking down to Alex's first kill and Ghallib's devastating attack, the thinly spread Department Q will need to stay one step ahead of their most lethal adversary yet if they are to prevent the loss of thousands of innocent lives"--… (més)

This was so gruelling & gruesome that I skipped through the last 50 pages or so just to establish what happens in the end. Too close to the bone for me having a partner who Aleppo in Syria. ( )

Department Q is a quirky bunch of misfits working out of the basement of police headquarters in Copenhagen, led by Carl Morck. The body of an older woman refugee washes up on the shores of the Mediterranean, and she becomes the year's 2,117th victim drowning while trying to reach freedom. A male freelance photographer, inexplicably named Joan, tells her story, but does not realize she has been murdered. Assad recognizes Victim 2117 as his foster mother, who cared for him and his family in Iraq. Over the course of the book, we learn of his tragic but hidden history, and his archenemy Ghaalib. Ghaalib and Assad have serious history and unfinished business. Ghaalib has something dear to Assad, and will stop at nothing for his vengeance on Assad and many others via a terrorist attack in Germany. There is a third subplot, about a reclusive kid, who also wants to avenge Victim 2117 because it reminds him of his deceased grandmother, his only close relative. Carl is torn between his deep friendship with Assad, his personal relationships, and catching the reclusive kid, who says he will go on a killing spree. Great to have Rose back on the team. 4.5 stars. ( )

Dark, very dark, but two excellent plots. Assad character not as engaging as in other books, Carl more distant. Gordon and Rose, however, spot on. I think the plots got in the way of character development this time. Or maybe it's just me. ( )

I have read all of the preceding Department Q novels, and after my libraries began to reopen, I was delighted to get this one from my reserve backlog. Assad has also long been my favorite character, so to anticipate more details on his mysterious background was a pleasure.

Alas, the book is not. I have to agree with many other reviewers, and in fact didn't finish it. In general, I steer clear of plots involving international terrorism, drug cartels, torture porn, and "thriller" action. I am far more interested in character (which is how I got hooked on Department Q in the first place), and how the plot problems are worked out by the cast of characters with their differing gifts and burdens. Sadly, Victim 2117 is mostly the former. Endless info dumps, unbelievable coincidences, tedious characters (especially the Spanish journalist and the villainous Ghaalib). And Assad is just sort of a prop for the story, without his steadfast charm, humor, and humanity. Rose leaps from a near-catatonic state to a driving force, literally overnight. And you know what? I'm also bored with Morck and Mona. I kept reading, kept hoping, but finally gave up.

Sorry, Jussi. Disappointing.

Department Q’s man of mystery, Assad, is a mystery no more. Expect all of your questions to be answered but be prepared, the first 1/8th of the book is very hard reading. While it remains quite dark in its entirety you get relief from the hope that Carl and Assad can yet find a way to tackle this evil. This book could stand alone if you want to jump in the series but it helps to know the characters as well as we do. 5 stars. Excellent writing. ( )
