4.0 out of 5 stars -- Thrilling police procedural, the second in a series, featuring Assistant Detective Louise Rick of Copenhagen Police Department. Set in Denmark, this novel focuses on the online dating scene and a serial rapist and murderer.
I like the writing and the characters -- Louise is struggling in her personal life and striving to also mange her heavy workload during an intense investigation and manhunt for the rapist. Her friend, Camilla, a reporter, is on the fringe of the story as she writes and publishes a first person account of survival by one of the victims. I am eager to read more in the series to get to know the characters better.
I read book #7, THE FORGOTTEN GIRLS, first and am now trying to go back and find all the English translations of the earlier books in the series. Of course it would be better for me to read in order, but this one worked also as a standalone. I have #3 and #4 on hand and will read them next.
