    Kimmie's home is on the streets of Copenhagen. To live she must steal. She has learned to avoid the police and never to stay in one place for long. But now others are trying to find her. And they won't rest until she has stopped moving - for good. Detective Carl of Department Q, the cold cases division, has received a file concerning the brutal murder of a brother and sister 20 years earlier. A group of boarding school students were the suspects at the time - until one of their numbers confessed and was convicted.

    Completely hooked!

    Not quite as dark as Mankell, not quite as horrific or convoluted as Larsson, yet as gripping as either and with superbly rounded characters who leave..Show More »
