Jussi Adler-Olsen - Department Q

Does anyone know the order in the above series? Goodreads state 'The Pheasant Killers' but another says 'The Absent One'. I'm a little confused.

After a rewarding trip to Copenhagen this past weekend, I've decided to delve into the first book of the series.

Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that Mercy (UK) / The Keeper of Lost Causes (US) is the first book in the series. (The original title is "Kvinden i buret.")
The Pheasant Killers (AKA Disgrace (UK) or The Absent One (US) is the second book in the series.
Keeping up with this series is a bit difficult because the US and UK translations were published under different titles.

From his website (http://www.jussiadlerolsen.dk) it states :

Quote:
The Woman in the Cage, The Pheasant Killers, and Message in a Bottle make up the first three volumes of the Danish crime-thriller series on Department Q.
In the UK that's Mercy, Disgrace and Redemption (which isn't out yet).
In the US that's The Keeper of Lost Causes, The Absent One and A Conspiracy of Faith.

Makes it hard to follow..... the first list of names are the English translation of the Danish title, but then as Doitsu says, they've been given different names again when released in the UK and the US.

Fantastic Fiction is my usual resource for finding the correct order of books in a series. Here's its page for this author:
