The Running Girl by Sara Blaedel

Sara Blaedel's The Running Girl is the latest in her Detective Louise Rick series set in Copenhagen.  

Louise is caring for Jonas, supposedly on a temporary basis, after his father's murder.  They have a good relationship, but Louise still considers her care of Jonas temporary.  

Jonas attends a farewell party for a classmate that is interrupted by a gang of older teenagers and calls Louise in a panic as the violence erupts.  Louise gets there as quickly as possible, but the circumstances have deteriorated, and she arrives at the scene of a traffic accident in which one of Jonas' friends, running for help, has been hit by a car.

Louise is involved in another case, that gradually seems to link up to the party invasion.

Intense and engrossing.

  1. This author is at the top of my list of books to read in 2018. Have you read Call Me Princess? I thought I'd start with that one...unless you have a better suggestion. :D

    1. I've only read 3 books by Blaedel--this is the second Louise Rick. Both were offered by NetGalley. Call Me Princess is the first in the series, right? Yep, I would start there.

      I also enjoyed The Undertaker's Daughter, a stand-alone; my review is scheduled for Jan. 18.

  2. Glad to hear this was another engaging read by Blaedel! Her series is one I plan to follow.

    1. :) I hope to catch up on the earlier books!
