Once you start this book, you cannot stop.
Social issues raised by Sarah Blædel are not only a backdrop for the crime, but the axis of the plot. The author weaves criminal intrigue with the contemporary problem that seems to be completely distant not only in time, but also not primarily associated with the rich Scandinavia. The reader, page after page, discovers the dark side of the city. Two separate ongoing stories seem to have nothing in common apart from the characters, but from the beginning, somewhere between words, lies the suggestion that something connects them.
I picked up this novel, not realising it was set in Copenhagen, so it was great to feel I was back in the land of ‘The Killing’. I was hooked from the start and I’m looking forward to more from this author.
