On Sale: August 15, 2011
Featuring: Susanne Hansson; Louise Rick
Add to Wish List
A young woman in Copenhagen, Susanne Hansson, becomes the
victim of an unusually brutal rape attack in her own home.
detective inspector Louise Rick is summoned to talk to the
victim, where she quickly determines that Susanne met the
rapist via a dating website, a fact that Susanne shamefully
tries to hide,
especially from her domineering mother.
The police suspect that the rapist may have been
caught on video in the subway, so Louise and a colleague go
through the tapes. They’re lucky enough to find him, but
unfortunately the image is blurry and shows him only in
profile. While the police investigation is making progress,
things take a negative turn for Susanne,
who tries to
commit suicide. The rape is not the only reason.
the meantime Louise becomes more and more immersed in the
online dating world. In her search she comes across the web
site “nightwatch.dk,” which allows her to upload images that
show people out in the night-time scene and who they’re
with. She finds a picture of the man, who is now calling
She contacts him using the name
"Princess," and they agree to meet.
With a climax as
suspenseful as it is shocking, Sara Blaedel's American debut
confirms her as one of the brightest stars in the new wave
of Scandinavian crime novelists that has riveted the
attention of readers around the world.

Re: Call Me Princess
After the increased interest in Scandinavian authors, it's
good to see a Danish author getting translated.
