Sara Blaedel, author of the number-one international best seller The Forgotten Girls - which was roundly praised as "gripping" with "uncompromising realism" (Washington Post) and "tautly suspenseful" (BookPage) - returns with the thrilling next book in her series featuring police investigator Louise Rick.
The Killing Forest
Following an extended leave, Louise Rick returns to work at the Special Search Agency, an elite unit of the National Police Department. She's assigned a case involving a 15-year-old who vanished a week earlier. When Louise realizes that the missing teenager is the son of a butcher from Hvalsoe, she seizes the opportunity to combine the search for the teen with her personal investigation of her boyfriend's long-ago death....
Louise's investigation takes her on a journey back through time. She reconnects with figures from her past, including Kim, the principal investigator at the Holbaek Police Department, her former in-laws, fanatic ancient religion believers, and her longtime close friend, journalist Camilla Lind. As she moves through the small town's cramped network of deadly connections, Louise unearths toxic truths left unspoken and dangerous secrets.

I enjoyed the story. The plot was good and kept me to the end. Not sure about the narrator though. I think there were too many characters and making different voices was too challenging for her. But I never fell asleep once and that's saying something! Twisty too...
I am very fond of Denmark and have often visited. I bought this book in anticipation of a bit of historically flavored suspense. Mistake. The narrator's accents varied from East Texan to SoCal. The plot was thin, and the character development very unsatisfying. I've never returned a book before. . . this was a first.
the writer keeps referencing things that happened in previous books but not explaining them. it doesn't make any sense nor does it make me want to read the previous books. it just made me give up in this one.
Not a Nesbo but interesting enough to pass a snowy day. Bad guys and good guys , sone history and mythology come together in this twist on not only who done it but just how many.
