Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

The Keeper of Lost Causes features the deeply flawed chief detective Carl M rck, who used to be a good homicide detective--one of Copenhagen's best. Then a bullet almost took his life. Two of his colleagues weren't so lucky, and Carl, who didn't draw his weapon, blames himself. <p>So a promotion is the last thing Carl expects. But it all becomes clear when he sees his new office in the basement. Carl's been selected to run Department Q, a new special investigation division that turns out to be a department of one. With a stack of Copenhagen's coldest cases to keep him company, Carl has been put out to pasture. So he's as surprised as anyone when a case actually captures his interest. A politician vanished without a trace five years earlier. The world assumes she's dead. His colleagues snicker about the time he's wasting. But Carl may have the last laugh, and redeem himself in the process. Because she isn't dead . . . yet.
