The former was a more suspenseful page-turner, but the latter, although slower, had a more rewarding conclusion. When Nina hears that a boy is sick, she goes to the site. Despite Nina's promise to her husband that she won't get involved, she does, though she feels helpless as the condition of the weakest continues to deteriorate. I was not an immediate fan of the Nina Borg series, but after reading Invisible Murder, I will now recommend it whole-heartedly. The writing is high quality, and the credit must be given not only to the writers but also to the translator.
Even when she knows better. Little do they know the toxicity of their find. Jeg kom til verden på Rigshospitalet i København d. It races towards an epic finish, an ending that leaves the reader both shocked and wonderfully satisfied. Tamás knew perfectly well that the chances of finding any valuable leftovers were miniscule. With its intricate plot and revealing glimpses into Roma life, this assured thriller cements its authors' places near the top of the Scandinavian crime fiction pantheon. Carefully packaged and shipped in a box.
Kaaberbøl has been a full-time novelist for some time. Nina and Sandor cross paths and suddenly the bad guys are after them for information. When Pitkin and Tamás find something in the basement of the hospital, they know it's better than drugs or guns to sell on the black market; these two impoverished Roma Gypsy boys have discovered an object that the right person will pay enough for to set their families up for life. Caution: This book with infect you with the need for more Nina Borg! I look forward to picking up the next book in the series, Death of a Nightingale. I recently read a book that contained a chapter on Copenhagen that made me want to know more about this country.
About the Author Lene Kaaberbøl and Agnete Friis are the Danish duo behind the Nina Borg series. Detective thinking is obviously reduced, and the credible heroism of the nurse must be unfortunately stretched, as it is in the concluding pages here.

Reading a few of the mysteries by these illustrious authors will give the reader an indication of the quality associated with Soho Crime: James Benn, Cara Black, Jassy Mackenzie, Leighton Gage, Timothy Hallinan, Martin Limon, Peter Lovesay, Qiu Xiaolong, Helene Tursten, Akimitsu Takagi, Ma This Danish mystery series featuring Red Cross nurse Nina Borg in modern-day Copenhagen follows a long line of deliciously cosmopolitan and yet delightfully local novels translated and published by Soho Crime. But then he caught sight of something that made his greed unfurl like wings. It is only in the last hundred pages that the authors are satisfied with all the descriptive material and settle down to bring it all together. Sometimes Pitkin was just too childish. In an increasingly desperate trek across Denmark, Nina tries to figure out who the boy is, where he belongs, and who exactly is trying to hunt him down. I read Boy in the Suitcase, and enjoyed it.
One of the aspects I like about this genre, Nordic Noir, is that it is often based on crimes against humanity and how easily it is to fall into the trappings of that dark world - it isn't always the most obvious of suspects. Knowing that there are young children involved, Nina consents to visit the group, despite her better judgment and promise to her husband. Together, the two have authored four novels to date in the bestselling Nina Borg series. Formerly worked as a high school teacher, copy writer, publishing company editor, cleaning assistant, and riding teacher. The story starts out with two Roma teenagers finding something abandoned that they think they can sell for a lot of money, unfortunately for them it is radioactive.
I had previously read and enjoyed the author's first book in this series, The Boy in the Suitcase. Probably more than once, and it's been done better. Invisible Murder, the sequel to that outstanding debut, promises to pose equally daunting challenges when Nina agrees to visit an old garage where dozens of illegal Roma Gypsy immigrants are holed up. A tale of Biblical proportions. Thank you again to authors Lene Kaaberbol and Agnes Friis as well as Soho Crime publishers for this GoodRead First Reads win. For this series, with our heroine Nina Borg, I hate to admit that I was disappointed.
She works at a Red Cross facility that offers medical care to immigrants living in Denmark. She has promised her husband that she will not work for the Network while he's doing his two weeks of work on an ocean oil drilling platform and will take care not to put their two children at risk. The consequences that arise out of these chains of events, if not stopped, could be devastating. For several years after the Russians had gone home, it had served as a clinic for the locals, run by one of the various Western aid organizations. But the manner in which all the various pieces of the puzzle finally come together is a believable surprise. I stayed with this second book during the first Clinton trump debate and realized how unsafe we would be if he were elected. And then if I ask.
