In an idyllic neighbourhood of Copenhagen, a young woman, Susanne Hansson, is discovered in her apartment bound and gagged, the victim of an extraordinarily brutal rape attack. Detective Inspector Louise Rick soon learns that Susanne met the rapist on a popular online dating site, something Susanne shamefully tries to hide. Events quickly spiral out of control as a horrified Louise realises that the rapist is using the website to target specific women for future attacks.
I picked up this novel, not realising it was set in Copenhagen, so it was great to feel I was back in the land of ‘The Killing’. I was hooked from the start and I’m looking forward to more from this author.
