Performer Alice Barrett Mitchell cuts into this crime thriller with the quick precision of an expert killer’s blade. A young woman is being brutally attacked. This, after all, is author Sara Blaedel’s dark, speedy world. Thrice voted "Most Popular Author" in Denmark, Blaedel, like her fellow Scandinavian, Stieg Larsson, delights in rendering psychosexual mysteries set within the loneliness of contemporary culture.
In Call Me Princess, the heroine, Detective Inspector Louise Rick, tracks an unknown rapist-murderer through the bowels of the Internet and the confounding employment of a false identity. The hardy will listen with the lights off. The squeamish shouldn’t listen at all.
The international best-selling novelist and Denmark’s “Queen of Crime,” Sara Blaedel is “entertaining all the way” (Politiken) in this suspense-packed thriller featuring her acclaimed detective heroine Louise Rick.
An online flirtation can have horrific consequences, as Detective Inspector Louise Rick discovers when she is called to an idyllic Copenhagen neighborhood where a young woman has been left bound and gagged after a profoundly brutal rape attack. Susanne Hansson met her rapist on a popular dating website; fearing the assailant is trolling the site for his next target, Louise is determined to cut him off at the pass. But then a new victim is found - dead this time - and the case becomes even more complex when Susanne attempts suicide.
From scanning seemingly innocent singles’ profiles to exploring a digital window on the city’s dark and dangerous nightlife, to understanding a troubled mother-daughter relationship, Louise races to uncover the shocking truth behind the crimes.

Love my Scandinavian authors! Sara Blaedel has done a great job of keeping me guessing in a unique way. Looking forward to the rest of the series!
After listening to Forgotten Girls I was excited to hear more about Louise Rick and Camilla Lind but was very disappointed with this story. The narrator definitely isn't the same either and at times it was hard to tell when different characters were speaking because her inflections and tone was the same throughout most of the book.
The story never really picked up, there was never any part that was climactic. It just kind of moved along.
