Sara Blaedel is the author of the #1 international bestselling series featuring Detective Louise Rick. Her books are published in thirty-seven countries. In 2014 Sara was voted Denmark's most popular novelist for the fourth time. She is also a recipient of the Golden Laurel, Denmark's most prestigious literary award. She lives in New York City.

After a stint hunting missing persons, Blaedel's no-nonsense heroine, Detective Louise Rick (The Lost Woman?, 2017), is now the only female detective in Copenhagen's homicide department and is forced to navigate the department's chauvinism while tackling two high-profile murders. Karoline Wissinge, a young nurse, was strangled in a Copenhagen park a year after her teenage brother died in a highly publicized car accident. The night of Wissinge's murder, veteran crime reporter Frank Sorensen was found dead in a hotel parking lot. At first, police assume Sorensen died of injuries from a drunken fall, but his autopsy unmasks the telltale signs of a hit. Camilla Lind, Rick's best friend and Cophenhagen's hungriest crime reporter, is digging for leads on both cases, driven by ambition and allegiance to her former mentor, Sorensen. Soon, it looks like both murders are linked to Denmark's reigning drug kingpin, and Camilla's muckraking threatens the investigations and her life. The Louise Rick novels are must-reads for fans of Scandinavia's female police detectives, such as Anne Holt's Hanne Wilhelmsen and Helene Tursten's Irene Huss. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
