In the ruins of an abandoned Soviet military hospital in northern Hungary, two impoverished Roma boys are scavenging for old supplies or weapons they could sell on the black market when they find more than they ever anticipated. The resulting chain of events threatens to blow the lives of a frightening number of people into bits and pieces.

In this feverishly anticipated follow-up to 2011’s critically acclaimed The Boy in the Suitcase, Danish Red Cross nurse Nina Borg doesn’t realize she is putting life and family on the line when she tries to treat a group of sick Hungarian refugees who are living illegally in a Copenhagen garage. Nina has unwittingly thrown herself into a deadly nest of the unscrupulous and the desperate, and what is at stake is much more terrifying than anyone had realized.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The Danish authors Lene Kaaberbøl and Agnete Friis have written another disturbing exposé of social injustice in Invisible Murder.”

    New York Times Book Review

  • “Superb.”

    Globe and Mail (Toronto)

  • “Kaaberbøl and Friis have created not only one of the best new crime series, but also one of the most unusual, in terms of the characters, the plots, and the way the crimes are integrated into the story.”

    International Noir Fiction

  • “Kellgren’s narration is outstanding, with bright energy, sharp intonation, and the ability to move easily between a variety of ethnic accents.”

    AudioFile

  • “Kaaberbøl and Friis return with a riveting follow-up to their 2011 debut…Nina and Sandor are flawed but appealing characters, and their stories smoothly connect in the buildup to a pulse-pounding finale. With its intricate plot and revealing glimpses into Roma life, this assured thriller cements its authors’ places near the top of the Scandinavian crime fiction pantheon.”

    Library Journal (starred review)

  • Winner of an AudioFile Earphones Award

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca Martin | 2/12/2014

    " A good read with a plot that brings together several important social issues. The series' protagonist, Nina Borg, is a nurse, which gives this series a rather unusual spin. I felt this book was better than the previous, The Boy in the Trunk. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Juliana Guarna | 2/11/2014

    " Fabulous...better than the first. Can't wait for more. Would make a great movie! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerry White | 2/8/2014

    " I liked the first book in this series quite a bit more than this one. It just sort of dragged in the middle. The ending redeemed the book for me, but I don't know that I'll read the third. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 2/3/2014

    " I liked Boy in the Suitcase better. This one took a long time to get interesting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sharman Egan | 1/18/2014

    " We meet Pitkin and Tamas in the prologue. Then in a section entitled "April", 3 new storylines are introduced, each with its own set of characters and no indication of how they related. And each one is just a few pages, not long enough for you to get the characters set in your head, or to become engaged in the story. By the time I got to the next section ("May" starting on page 29), I was so confused I just gave up. In fairness, I was under the influence of various pharmaceuticals so maybe my brain was dulled. But this book was just way too much work for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Kearney | 1/16/2014

    " 3.5 (I don't know how two people can write so seamlessly). This is a dark and gripping thriller, grim and horribly plausible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juli | 1/12/2014

    " Not as good as her first book in the series. It took longer to get into - but I still ended up enjoying the story and wanting to know who dunnit! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robyn | 12/30/2013

    " I can't wait to read more of Nina Borg. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bobbi D | 12/18/2013

    " This book starts out a little slowly...with many threads to follow. But once it gets going it captures you until the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kenneth Fredette | 12/10/2013

    " Maybe I was impatient reading the first few chapters, or the names flowed together. It took about half way through the book to make sense out of it, but then it started to get good. Sandor, Soren are names but they are short but very similar. My only gripe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Su | 9/19/2013

    " I had earlier read the Boy in the Suitcase and considered it very well written with a great storyline. This book is by the same authors and also very good. The authors are Danish and the setting is Denmark. The bad guys are so bad and I rooted for the main character to remain alive! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally | 3/18/2013

    " An intriguing mystery - worth the read! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ebony | 3/14/2013

    " Hated it. It was a mystery but it read more like a drama. At no point was I excited or enthralled. Kept reading because I wanted it to get better. It didn't. Second disappointing Kaaberbol novel. Never again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 3/9/2013

    " It was a pretty good book -- not as good as her first Nina Borg mystery. It was fast-paced action the whole way through the book, but the ending was sort of a let-down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby Turner | 1/21/2013

    " complicated and creepy. I really love it! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Richard Ward | 10/19/2012

    " Pornographic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Afsheen | 10/14/2012

    " The end twist makes this book excellent . The Silent Murder indeed !! "
