The Boy in the Suitcase
by Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis
Praise For This Book:
“Here’s something you don’t often see in Nordic noir fiction—a novel written by two women about the criminal mistreatment of women and children, compassionately told from a feminine perspective and featuring female characters you can believe in . . . The first collaborative effort of Lene Kaaberbøl and Agnete Friis, and it packs an almighty punch.” —The New York Times Book Review, Notable Crime Book of 2011

“Fans of Nordic crime fiction, rejoice: Something is rotten in Denmark. But never fear, Red Cross nurse Nina Borg is on the case . . . A wild ride.” —New York Post

“Terrific . . . What’s for sure is that, once you start reading, you can’t stop—it’s as if the poor kid’s life depends on your getting to the end as fast as possible . . . looks like another winning entry in the emotionally lacerating Scandinavian mystery sweepstakes.” —The Washington Post

“Written in that sparse, uniquely Scandinavian style sure to draw comparisons with a certain blockbuster trilogy (this is better), this story packs plenty of emotional suspense and interpersonal friction without veering into melodrama. Kaaberbøl and Friis know when to reveal and when to pull back, presenting just enough back story about Sigita’s upbringing and marriage, just enough about Nina’s relationship with her family and friends, without ever interrupting the action. The disparate perspectives do as much to humanize all the action as they do to disorient—and I mean that in the best possible sense.” —Associated Press

“A frightening and tautly told story of the lengths to which people will go for family and money.” —USA Today
