Following in the tradition of Stieg Larsson and Camilla L\u00e4ckberg-the American debut of Danish crime queen Sara Bl\u00e6delÆs internationally bestselling novel
A young woman in Copenhagen, Susanne Hansson, becomes the victim of an unusually brutal rape attack in her own home. Detective Inspector Louise Rick is summoned to talk to the victim, where she quickly determines that Susanne met the rapist via a dating website, a fact that Susanne shamefully tries to hide, especially from her domineering mother.
The police suspect that the rapist may have been caught on video in the subway, so Louise and a colleague go through the tapes. TheyÆre lucky enough to find him, but unfortunately the image is blurry and shows him only in profile. While the police investigation is making progress, things take a negative turn for Susanne, who tries to commit suicide. The rape is not the only reason.
In the meantime Louise becomes more and more immersed in the online dating world. In her search she comes across the web site \u201cnightwatch.dk,\u201d which allows her to upload images that show people out in the night-time scene and who theyÆre with. She finds a picture of the man, who is now calling himself \u201cPrinzz.\u201d She contacts him using the name \u201cPrincess,\u201d and they agree to meet.
With a climax as suspenseful as it is shocking, Sara Bl\u00e6delÆs American debut confirms her as one of the brightest stars in the new wave of Scandinavian crime novelists that has riveted the attention of readers around the world.
