Praise for the Nina Borg series
"Fans of Nordic crime fiction, rejoice: Something is rotten in
Denmark. But never fear, Red Cross nurse Nina Borg is on the case .
. . A wild ride."
--New York Post "Written in that sparse, uniquely Scandinavian style sure to draw comparisons with a certain blockbuster trilogy (this is better), this story packs plenty of emotional suspense and interpersonal friction."
--Associated Press "A frightening and tautly told story of the lengths to which people will go for family and money."
--USA Today "Terrific . . . What's for sure is that, once you start reading, you can't stop."
--The Washington Post "A terrific central character and a great plot . . . A series to watch."
--The Globe and Mail "Stunning. Hooked me from the beginning. The Danish bourgeoisie and the criminal underworld collide in a moving, fast-paced thriller with psychological depth."
--Cara Black, New York Times bestselling author of Murder in the Marais "A seamless weaving of psychological depth and rocket-paced plotting, the story hooked me in and the strong, complicated, and fascinating women at its center kept me utterly riveted cover-to-cover. Nina Borg is one of my new favorite heroines!"
--Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of In the Blood "Feminist outrage fuels the politically pointed novels of the Danish writing partners Lene Kaaberb l and Agnete Friis . . . Nina is all heart and her efforts to bring justice to women like Natasha are heroic."
--New York Times Book Review
"Moving . . . [Kaaberb l and Friis] tell a socially conscious--and, at times, critical--tale about immigration issues that apply both to Denmark and the U.S. without sacrificing the urgency of the best thrillers."
