"an original and absorbing piece of work"

This Danish novel is about a serial killer who leaves corpses displayed in public locations in Copenhagen, including a fountain. But Engberg has a natural human sympathy that makes the victims more than cardboard cutouts. Her cops could not be less macho, including a detective on maternity leave who can’t bear being left out of the investigation. Engberg’s novels are bestsellers in Denmark and she is a name to look out for.
