Publisher Comments:

Nina Borg, a Red Cross nurse, wife, and mother of two, is a compulsive do-gooder who can't say no when someone asks for help—even when she knows better. When her estranged friend Karin leaves her a key to a public locker in the Copenhagen train station, Nina gets suckered into her most dangerous project yet. Inside the locker is a suitcase, and inside the suitcase is a three-year-old boy: naked and drugged, but alive.

 

Is the boy a victim of child trafficking? Can he be turned over to authorities, or will they only return him to whoever sold him? When Karin is discovered brutally murdered, Nina realizes that her life and the boy's are in jeopardy, too. In an increasingly desperate trek across Denmark, Nina tries to figure out who the boy is, where he belongs, and who exactly is trying to hunt him down.

Review:

"In this riveting first in a new Danish crime series, hard-working Copenhagen nurse Nina Borg can't say no to nursing school friend Karin's cryptic request to pick up a package at the train station. There, stuffed in a suitcase inside a locker, Nina finds a three-year-old boy, drugged but alive. A near altercation with a violent man, who arrives at the locker soon after and is furious to find the suitcase empty, quashes Nina's instincts to call the police. Child in tow, she tries to track down Karin to understand her involvement and discover whether the boy, Mikas, who speaks only Lithuanian, is a victim of sex trafficking. Meanwhile, others are searching frantically for Mikas, from his mother in Vilnius to the men who'll stop at nothing to recover their 'cargo.' Without flashy plot devices, Kaaberbøl and Friis let Nina's particular blend of stoicism and vulnerability guide the story." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Wow! This is one of those books that makes you put down all of your chores, eat peanut butter sandwiches instead of roasting that chicken - and read late into the night. The book grabs your attention from the first few pages. There's no doubt, these authors are great - I'll look forward to many more good books from them. Fans of Steig Larsson - check it out. It's a gripping story - well told.
