2023: Could there be someone targeting the elderly in Copenhagen?

  • Genre: Crime, Police Procedural

What you need to know before your trail

When ninety-year-old Irene Valborg is found brutally murdered in an affluent suburb of Copenhagen, her diamond necklace missing, it looks like a burglary gone wrong. When two more victims are attacked, the police lament a rise in violence against the elderly, but who is the young girl in the photo found by DI Henrik Jungersen on the scenes of crime? Impatient to claim her inheritance, Irene’s daughter hires former Dagbladet reporter Jensen and her teenage apprentice Gustav to find the necklace. Henrik finds himself once more pitched in a quest for the truth against Jensen – the one woman in Copenhagen he is desperate to avoid.

Travel Guide

Copenhagen tips from Heidi Amsinck

The author says:

“One of the many great features of Copenhagen is its size. The novel opens in a house in the northern suburb of Klampenborg, very like the one my father grew up in. It had a rose garden and a dark basement with a chequerboard floor, and I remember it more vividly than what I did yesterday: its peculiar smell, the sound of its doors opening and closing, its cold terrazzo bathroom floors.”
