The Boy in the Suitcase

Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis, read by Katherine Kellgren. AudioGO, unabridged, seven CDs, 9 hrs., $29.95 ISBN 978-1-60998-658-2

Kaaberbol and Friis’s latest installment in the bestselling Nina Borg series finds Nina—a nurse, mother, and wife—working with women and child refugees. One day she receives a call from an estranged friend named Karin who asks her to pick up a suitcase from a public locker. When Nina finds the locker, she discovers a naked three-year-old boy—drugged but alive—inside the case. Thus begins Nina’s effort to help the boy and discover his identity. But when Karin is beaten to death, Nina is sure that her life—and that of the young boy—is in danger. Katherine Kellgren turns in a winning performance in this audio edition. Her gritty, nasal, and vaguely ominous narration perfectly captures the essence of this bizarre thriller. Additionally, she lends Kaaberbol and Friis’s characters a wide range of unique voices and European accents. A Soho hardcover. (Dec.)
