    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.

    Something went wrong for me

    Maybe if I gave this review a few days to simmer I could identify what exactly I didn't like. I can say for starters that the narrator made the men so..Show More »

    Inspector Louise Rick is immediately called out to Holbraek Fjord when a young immigrant girl is found in the watery depths, a piece of concrete tied around her waist and two mysterious circular patches on the back of her neck. Her name was Samra, and Louise soon learns that her short life was a sad story. Her father had already been charged once with assaulting her and her mother, Sada, who makes it clear that her husband would indeed be capable of killing Samra if she brought dishonor to the family. But she maintains that Samra hadn't done anything dishonorable.

    A timely topic

    A good story, on a timely subject. Honor killings, cultural conflicts, anti-Muslim hysteria and the craziness of adolescence. Well-told and recommend..Show More »

    The body of an unidentified woman is discovered in a local forest. A large, unique scar on one side of her face should make the identification easy, but nobody has reported her missing. As the new commander of the Missing Persons Department, Louise risks involving the media by releasing a photo of the victim, hoping to find someone who knew her.
