Nina Borg, a Red Cross nurse, wife, and mother of two, is trying to live a quiet life. The last thing her husband wants is for her to go running off on another dangerous mission to help illegal refugees. But when Nina’s estranged friend Karin leaves Nina a key to a public locker in the Copenhagen train station and begs her to take care of its contents, Nina gets suckered into her most dangerous case yet. Because inside the suitcase is a three-year-old boy: naked and drugged, but alive.

Nina’s natural instinct is to rescue the boy, but she knows the situation is risky. 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? In an increasingly desperate trek across Denmark, Nina tries to figure out who the boy is, where he belongs, and who exactly is hunting him down. When Karin is discovered brutally murdered, Nina realizes that her life and the boy’s are in jeopardy, too.

    " I skipped happy hour to read this book. Enough said. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Kylie Porter | 2/8/2014

    " I have enjoyed reading Scandinavian authors of late - despite the challenges of names and descriptions. For a whodunit/murder mystery this book had enough twists and turns to keep you engaged the whole way through. For a good book which doesn't require massive emotional investment . . . this is goodie!

    " Was expecting more based on the praise of this book. Really dragged for me. I guess that puts me in the minority. Definitely doesn't make me want to pick up any of the author's other books.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Shelley | 2/7/2014

    " Good Scandinavian Noir, this time from Denmark. Strong female characters and really bad baddies. Nina Borg is burnt out after nursing in refugee camps. But she's still determined to save the world. And she does--or at least a young three-year-old's life after the boy's trafficked into Denmark in order to ..... (spoiler). "
