    thank you Soho Crime! done. wow. The human randomness and stupid

    thank you Soho Crime!
    done. wow. The human randomness and stupidity of innocence and evil. This book is a little like the fantastic book "Child 44" because when I was done reading it I was glad I lived in the states and I felt the need for a shower and a hug... Nina is one tough lady. Nina and Soren in the future...?
    This book is like the last one these gals wrote "The Boy In The Suitcase" which also was not an easy read. The place and circumstances
    of the people in these books is a hard cold look at poverty, ignorance and the horrendous racism we have in this world.
    What happens when one young man who has had enough and wants something more for himself and his family turns into a tragic story that affects all around him...
    Nina is a Danish Red Cross nurse who can not stop caring for the sick even when she goes home to her family...and there in lies a problem with Nina's long suffering husband Morten, who takes care of home and their two kids while Nina is often out helping after hours in the quasi health care underground she is a part of.
    The story opens as Nina's husband Morten must again go out of town for work and extracts a promise from Nina that no matter what, this time her first priority is her home and children and while he is away to please, please leave the underground work to the other people until he can get back home.
    Nina promises to do just that, and she means it...even as she does exactly what she has promised him she wouldn't do and goes out to help a group of gypsies who have come down with an unusual illness and yet once again finds herself in mortal danger but, this time it involves her daughter and Morten will not be so forgiving this time.
    Two poor, ignorant boys find some radioactive material that an earthquake had brought to the surface in an old abandoned building and what ensues is a harrowing ride into prostitution, illegal immigrants, murder, Geiger counters, a law student, a disgruntled old lady, radiation poisoning, evil men, pissed off policemen and one totally fierce nurse... Nina!
    I am really enjoying this series that Lene and Agnete have created. The books are a wonderful look into other cultures and lands and the themes of love, loyalty, family and the sense of right and wrong are universal to us all. Good on ya ladies!

    A Good Samaritan trying to help others but with dangerous roadblocks.

    Very good story line and visualizing of all the character interaction in a poorer economic setting. The social stigmas of ethnic groups is different from the USA. but has similar ideas. Looking forward to Nina's character in other future books.

    This novel, the second in the Nina Borg series, reminds me of an old MGM epic: A big cast. Broad geographical setting (in this case from Hungary to Germany to Denmark). A tale of Biblical proportions. And yet, despite all this complexity, the plot is pretty simple.

    It all begins when two young gypsy boys break into an abandoned Russian clinic in Hungary looking for some loot to sell. Instead they find a canister of cesium salt, a dangerous radioactive material which can be used to make a dirty bomb. One of the boys takes it to Denmark to sell to a buyer, and after he asks his brother to help, the brother comes to Denmark. But the boy dies of radiation poisoning. Meanwhile Nina, who treats gypsy children who were housed in the same hovel as the boy, is also poisoned by the radiation. It is only in the last hundred pages that the authors are satisfied with all the descriptive material and settle down to bring it all together.

    So in the final pages we have an old-fashioned police procedural, which is a lot more interesting than what has preceded it. It all is very complicated and yet simple. This reader found it slow reading, and the tale quite burdensome, although the idea is a solid one. Having not read the predecessor novel, “The Boy in the Suitcase,” which was highly praised, no comparison can be made. Apparently there is a third novel in the series in the works, so, perhaps, there’s another chance to evaluate on a comparative basis.

    This book was a lot of fun, but one must be able to juggle the story telling style of constantly shifting characters because the authors use the same device as Boy in the Suitcase. However, I think this installment of Nina Borg is much more riveting than the first and on par with the Girl with Dragon Tattoo Trilogy.
