Nina Borg, a Red Cross nurse, wife, and mother of two, can't say no when someone asks for help. 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. 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.

A mystery set in Norway.

Aug 10, 2015

Despite its grim title, this novel is a compelling read with a frightening, yet believable plot. There is an interesting interweaving of characters; the two heroines Nina and Sigita under threat from kidnappers Jan and Jucas.What adds depth to this mystery is the added perspective of the 'bad guys' including their motivation and their family connections.
So often in movies we are left with no insight into the behaviour and the background of criminal so this dimension heightens the suspense and gives us a deeper understanding of the kidnapping and its aftermath.
