THE BOY IN THE SUITCASE - A Nina Borg Mystery
Nina Borg's life is a busy one. With two children of her own, her job is to help people; working as a nurse for a secret organization that provides medical care to illegals. When she agrees to meet her longtime friend Karin for lunch, Karin begs her to fetch a package from a public locker at the Copenhagen train station. Unwilling to explain what's in the locker, Karin's parting words send Nina down the rabbit hole.
Nina discovers a drugged and naked young boy in a suitcase inside of the locker. The boy, Mikas, is unable to speak Danish and when Nina discovers that Karin has been murdered, she doesn't know where to turn or who or what she's running from, trying to stay a step ahead of some very dangerous people searching for Mikas.
Another woman is equally desperate; Sigita Ramoskiene, a Lithuanian woman, wakes up in a hospital, the victim of an apparent alcohol overdose. She doesn't have any memory of what happened to her and discovers that her young son Mikas is missing. The tension builds as Nina struggles to identify and protect the boy, while miles away Sigita frantically searches for her son . Unknown to each other, both women become deeply immersed in the horror of human trafficking.
THE BOY IN THE SUITCASE is a taut and satisfying Scandinavian thriller.
