【內容介紹】回最上方
In the heart-pounding next installment of the New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling Department Q series, a terrifying international investigation reveals the complex backstory of one of the department's own—the enigmatic Assad.

The newspaper refers to the body 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 Alexander, 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 Ghaalib, one of the most brutal tormentors from Abu Ghraib—Saddam Hussein’s infamous prison—the death of Victim 2117 is 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 Ghaalib. But with the clock ticking down to Alexander’s first kill and Ghaalib’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.


在《紐約時報》和暢銷全球《懸案密碼》系列緊張刺激的下一集中,一項可怕的國際調查揭示了機構內部成員之一--謎樣人物阿薩德的複雜背景。
 
報紙僅將屍體稱為二一一七號死者--第二千一百一十七名死於地中海的難民。但對於故事中的三個角色而言,無名屍的意義遠不止此,這次死亡案件引發了連串事件,讓哥本哈根警探卡爾•默克所領導的懸案部捲入了一個極端危險且事關私人恩怨的案件。這個案件不僅揭露了過去黑暗的秘密,也對未來具有致命的影響。
 
對於陷入困擾的丹麥少年亞歷山大來說,他躲在電腦螢幕後面隱藏他的身份,二一一七號死者的死亡象徵他所憎恨的一切,也成了他在現實生活發洩殺人衝動的最佳藉口。對於來自阿布格萊布(薩達姆侯賽因臭名昭著的監獄)最殘酷的折磨者迦利布來說,二一一七號死者的死是多年來恐怖行動的第一步。對於懸案部的阿薩德來說,二一一七號死者是他與過去埋藏的聯繫--以及他以為早已過世的家人。
 
在懸案部小組卡爾、蘿絲和戈登的幫助下,阿薩德為了捕獲迦利布,必須面對他在中東多年的痛苦記憶。但是,隨著亞歷山大的第一次殺人和迦利布致命攻擊的時間逼近,力量分散的懸案部如果要阻止成千上萬無辜的百姓喪生,就得比他們的對手搶得先機。
