Mercy by Jussi Adler-Olsen

A Scandinavian police thriller,  and with the success of Stieg Larrson and others I was looking forward to reading as they do trend to have an underlying darkness that seems to have been missing in UK thrillers of recent.   This one centres around Copenhagen detective Carl Morck and a search for a 5 year old vanished female who has been imprisoned by an unknown perpetrator. The book is a little hard to get it to but eventually perseverance pays off to what is an intelligent thriller with great characterisation and also about to be made into TV series/film.
