"A young woman's body is found on the street in Copenhagen's Vesterbro district, her throat slit, and the media is clamoring for the grisly details. Detective Louise Rick is investigating the gruesome murder when her friend, Camilla Lind, calls. Louise assumes it is because Camilla, a crime reporter on a morning paper, wants to be the first to hear of any juicy new developments. Instead, her distraught friend reveals that her ten year-old son found an abandoned baby on his way to school. As Louise digs deeper into the murder and the mysterious foundling, every clue uncovered points to organized human trafficking from Eastern Europe, run by ruthless gangsters who despise women and won't hesitate to kill anyone who gets in their way."-- From dust jacket.

Disappointed. There are two story lines, one involving the detective and the other the reporter. The primary focus in the book is on babies being abandoned in a church and prostitutes. The story has a lot of pieces parts that seemed too jumbled to me. I did NOT care for the issue or the unsatisfying conclusion. Perhaps the problem is in a garbled translation?

Not my favorite of hers but it was still a really good read. The ending felt very rushed and actually kinda confusing. Since the bad guy got away maybe there's hope Louise & Bosko will meet again.

Not a terrible book but suffers from a rather awkward translation.
