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.In 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 himself "Prinzz." 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.

A boring police procedural highlighted by incompetent law enforcement. Too much llama drama by the lead detective. Horrible villains need to be matched by determined heroes. Not so much here. The book has a good PR campaign. But I thought it was a waste of my time. Also, the title of the book is a bizarre disconnect from the story. Seems like the overall translation was ok, but the title could have suffered from that.

Very suspenseful! I couldn't wait for them to catch the guy but didn't want it to end. Just put her next book on hold.
