The description of this book is only the tip of the iceberg of this compelling and amazingly good thriller. The desperate mother trying to find her little boy, and Nina, the woman who found him, simultaneously trying to find out who he is while running from a dangerous murderer.

2 Authors,too many characters.
It took me 200 pages just to get to slightly know who was who.

Disappointing. Stunted prose (lost in translation?) and a heroine who is a pathological 'carer'.
Struggled to finish this one and should not have bothered.

Nina Borg #1

A 3 year old boy is kidnapped in Lithuania and transported to Denmark. This is the central point for the series of interconnected, and converging often colliding stories. It's a very disconcerting story written in staccato fragments in a matter-of-fact often dispassionate language. One of the authors is a children's writer, the other a journalist. It is uncertain if they are just fleshing out a story found in the headlines or if they were making a broader point about society. -

Well written and captivating mystery. It also has an unusual plot. The first few pages were a bit dark but the plot line intriqued me and I wanted to finish the book.

You know, I read through the first few pages, and felt I didn't like it. Then I took it on a trip, and in no time at all, I couldn't put it down. Has the feel and pacing of the recent spate of Scandinavian thrillers, but deals with fundamentally flawed, and ultimately more believable characters.
