Nina Borg, a Red Cross nurse, wife, and mother of two, is trying to live a quiet life. The last thing her husband wants is for her to go running off on another dangerous mission to help illegal refugees. But when Nina's estranged friend, Karin, leaves her a key to a public locker in the Copenhagen train station, and begs her to take care of its contents, Nina gets suckered into her most dangerous case yet.
"Nice story set in Denmark"
In this feverishly anticipated follow-up to 2011’s critically acclaimed The Boy in the Suitcase, Danish Red Cross nurse Nina Borg doesn’t realize she is putting life and family on the line when she tries to treat a group of sick Hungarian gypsies who are living illegally in a Copenhagen garage. Nina has unwittingly thrown herself into a deadly nest of the unscrupulous and the desperate, and what is at stake is much more terrifying than anyone had realized.
"Lots of thrills!"
Natasha Doroshenko, a Ukrainian woman who has been arrested for murdering her Danish fiancé, escapes police custody on her way to an interrogation in Copenhagen's police headquarters. It isn't the first time Natasha has lost a partner to violent ends: her first husband was also murdered three years earlier, in Kiev, and in the same manner, his hands broken. At the same time, someone tries to abduct Natasha's eight-year-old daughter from the Red Cross center that has been caring for her while her mother, an illegal immigrant, was in jail.
"Bring back Katherine Kellgrin"
Hun lever en stor del af sit liv i en verden andre danskere sjældent ser, selv om den er lige omkring os hele tiden. Det er en verden hvor afpresning, menneskehandel, mishandling og unødvendig død er hverdag; en verden hvor børn forsvinder hver eneste dag uden at nogen stiller spørgsmål. Men Nina er ikke god til at lukke øjnene. Da hun finder drengen i kufferten, forsøger hun at finde ud af hvem han er, og hvor han kommer fra. Hun har bestemt sig for at det her barn ikke får lov til bare at forsvinde.
On her way home from the shops, Nina Borg is attacked. Dazed and half conscious, she hears her assailant ask for her forgiveness. Only later does she understand that this isn't for what he's just done but for what he plans to do to. For the first time, she's the primary target of a hit, and it slowly dawns on her that this case is connected to a surprising and dangerous friendship among three young men from Manila.
