The international bestselling 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.
