Great start to this Scandi-noir police procedural trilogy. Has a strong female protagonist who is kind of a cross between (Kathleen) Mallory & Lisbeth Salander.
Crimes the cops are investigating include child trafficking & abuse of immigrants seeking asylum which gives the plot a chilling relevance to current events.
Only quibble is uneven translation with odd word choices & awkward phrasing that pulls you out of the story periodically. Still an impressive debut & I look forward to reading "Marked for Revenge".

This is the first piece of Nordic crime that I have ever read and I was impressed! The novel mimics a police procedural novel but it’s very unique in the sense that it switches gears during the second half of the novel. It's for sure worth the read!
