The first in the Danish Nina Borg series. It's a wonderfully fast-paced and suspenseful tale. Several stories are intertwined and you'll want to keep listening to find out what happens.

Nina Borg, a Red Cross nurse, is a bit of an adrenaline junkie, much to the chagrin of her longsuffering husband, who must hold down the fort and care for the kids whenever she runs off to her latest do-gooder adventure.

The adventure in this book, however, isn't one of Nina's choosing, but one thrust upon her when a desperate friend begs her to pick up a package in a locker. The "package" turns out to be a naked, drugged, three-year-old boy. The friend isn't available to shed any light on the situation, and Nina quickly learns that someone dangerous expected the suitcase to still be in the locker when he came to collect it.

Nina doesn't dare go to the police, and the boy, when he awakes, is of no help because he speaks a language Nina can't identify. Relying on her wits alone, she must try to figure out who wanted the boy and why, while avoiding the danger that now threatens them both.

Meanwhile, the boy's mother, Sigita, only knows that her child has been taken. Without leads and with little help from the police, she, too, must race against time to find and rescue her son.

The story is told from several characters' viewpoints and, while this is somewhat disorienting at first, it also adds to the quality of the mystery. Each character is trying to piece together what he or she knows to get a complete picture. The reader experiences this same sensation as the story moves toward its dynamic conclusion.
