The Boy in the Suitcase by Lene Kaaberbol & Agnete Friis

September 04, 2013

Nina Borg, wife and mother of two, has a compulsory addiction to danger.  As a Red Cross employee, Nina and her colleagues work with illegal immigrants by helping them find asylum from oppressors.  Despite her husband’s pleas to live a simpler, more quiet life with her family, Nina finds herself constantly drawn into dangerous situations.  This is precisely why Nina gets into a very tricky situation involving a three year old Lithuanian boy she discovered drugged and stuffed into a suitcase.  Not knowing how he ended up there, Nina is determined to keep him safe and that means also keeping him away from the police until she knows his full story. With language as a major barrier, Nina seeks to find someone who understands him so she can decide what to do next. 

My Thoughts: 
The Boy in the Suitcase is the first in the series of Nina Borg novels.  As I read this book, I couldn’t help but think of The Girl in the Dragon Tattoo.  While the subject matter is definitely different, both series deal with crime and corruption and offer a good amount of suspense.  My favorite element in this novel is how each chapter is written from a different character’s perspective.  It is a little confusing in the beginning, but as I continued to read, I was able to figure out how they all fit together.  I will be picking up the next book in this series, Invisible Murder, very soon.  If you love crime and suspense, you will definitely enjoy this series!

You guys. I know it’s after the fact and I’ve already had Baby Elias (he came a little earlier than I thought since I figured he’d be two weeks late like his sister), but these pictures are too good not to share. Emma Frances Logan Photography is AMAZING. She takes all of our family pictures and ...
