- DescriptionMercy by Jussi Adler-Olsen is Scandinavia's new bestselling crime writing sensation At first the prisoner scratches at the walls until her fingers bleed. But there is escaping the room. With way of measuring time, her days, weeks, months go unrecorded. She vows t to go mad. She will t 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 she's dead. Everyone says it's a waste of time. He thinks they're right. *** The voice in the dark is distorted, harsh and without mercy. It says the prisoner's torture will only end when she answers one simple question.
