What you need to know before your trail

The body of an unidentified woman has been discovered in a remote forest. A large, unique scar on one side of her face should make the identification easy, but nobody has reported her missing. Louise Rick, the new commander of the Missing Persons Department, waits four long days before pulling off a risky move: releasing a photo of the victim to the media, jeopardizing the integrity of the investigation in hopes of finding anyone who knew her.

The gamble pays off when a woman recognizes the victim as Lisemette, a child she cared for in the state mental institution many years ago. Lisemette was a “forgotten girl,” abandoned by her family and left behind in the institution. But Louise soon discovers something even more disturbing: Lisemette had a twin, and both girls were issued death certificates more than thirty years ago.

The setting for this novel is the chilling forest at the heart of this story. Fictional thank goodness as after reading this, you won’t want to go there! The map shows Copenhagen and the police station in the novel. Sydhaven is where Eik is picked up from Ulla’s in the story. Most of the action takes place in the police autopsy suites and that dark mean forest…..

“Something like that haunts you for the rest of your life.”
