Product Details


Praise for The Considerate Killer

“One of the most distinctive characters in contemporary fiction.”
Los Angeles Review of Books

“Powerful . . . As in previous installments, Kaaberbøl and Friis tackle social justice issues head-on.”
—Mystery Scene 

“If this indeed is the finale, the series will end on a high-flying note . . . We have four fine books in a series that demands to be read and re-read.”


—Reviewing the Evidence

“Seldom do readers get to know a character who so wholeheartedly—and blindly—throws herself into the role of White Knight, constantly battling to do right, unceasing in her fight to give a voice to the powerless. Yes, the stories are excellent, but Nina is the reason I recommend this series.”
—Kittling Books

“Chilling and startling . . . A very satisfying conclusion to a gripping series.”
—Fresh Fiction’s Fresh Pick

Praise for Death of a Nightingale

“[Nina] joins the sisterhood of run-amok heroines like Homeland‘s Carrie Mathison and Lisbeth Salander of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Nina doesn’t just have a bee in her bonnet—she has a whole hive. And it’s buzzing away in her latest adventure, Death of a Nightingale, an elaborately plotted page-turner that flits from today’s liberal-minded Denmark and mobbed-up Ukraine to the starvation-racked Soviet Union of the Stalinist ’30s.”
—John Powers, NPR’s Fresh Air

Death of a Nightingale is a gripping and elegant tapestry of a novel. A seamless weaving of psychological depth and rocket-paced plotting, the story hooked me in and the strong, complicated, and fascinating women at its center kept me utterly riveted cover-to-cover. Nina Borg is one of my new favorite heroines!”
—Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of In the Blood

“Feminist outrage fuels the politically pointed novels of the Danish writing partners Lene Kaaberbøl and Agnete Friis . . . Nina is all heart and her efforts to bring justice to women like Natasha are heroic.”
—The New York Times Book Review

“A moving story . . . [Kaaberbøl and Friis] tell a socially conscious—and, at times, critical—tale about immigration issues that apply both to Denmark and the U.S. without sacrificing the urgency of the best thrillers.”
