I would like to thank Netgalley for a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.A woman s body is found in the forest, but no one seems to know who she is Louise Rick then discovers that the woman is already dead, or rather that she was a patient in a state mental institution and was declared dead 30 years ago Now Louise and her colleague Eik must find out how a woman can be declared dead and then end up dead for real decades later.This book was far less gruesome and gory than I expect [...]

1 Star for the narration The book is set in Denmark, yet the leading detectives voices are read with an American accent Other characters, however, were read with several different accents US South, and then maybe Wisconsin Then there were characters read with what sounded like a Scottish accent Not sure what was going on here, but I wouldn t recommend the audio version AT ALL Thank goodness this was a library lend or I d have to return the book Needless to say, I won t be listening to the next t [...]
The Forgotten Girls is a good addition to the Scandinavian mysteries that are being translated for English readers currently Blaedel has been writing them prior to their recent popularity and if is accurate it looks like there are a few installments prior to The Forgotten Girls surrounding Louise Rick s friend Camilla Lind we will need to learn about as well I believe this is the first book where Louise Rick is in the spotlight It is a fast paced mystery centered around the story of a mysterious [...]

4.5 starsIt s books like this that give me anxiety at the mere thought of going into the woods This is the seventh book in the series, but the first I ve read from Sara Blaedel I have to say, I m pretty impressed The writing, the characters, the creepy setting I didn t want it to end Something like that haunts you for the rest of your life From the start there s a sad and ominous undertone The best way I can describe the setting and my feelings in the beginning a dreary, rainy day Louise is a de [...]
As Raparigas Esquecidas, livro de Sara Blaedel, mais conhecida como A Rainha Dinamarquesa do Thriller , chegou at mim atrav s de um exemplar de avan o e com a promessa de ser arrepiante, intenso e sociologicamente fascinante Verdade seja dita, eu andava numa letargia irritante no que toca a leituras, principalmente por ter dado conta que o livro que estava a ler tinha um predecessor e que mais valia parar Peguei ent o neste thriller e em coisa de tr s ou quatro dias, com viagens de norte a sul p [...]
This was good It was fast paced and very enjoyable I figured out who the killer was at chapter 8 so that was a little disappointing, but at the same time I had that I FUCKING KNEW IT moment at the end when the author revealed the killer Who doesn t love it when you are the real detective in a murder mystery book

Note I received a copy of this book by the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.Plot Story The Forgotten Girls is a brilliant book with an exciting plotline which engulfs the reader right from the beginning The enjoyed the storyline thoroughly and would definitely love to read from the author This book has so many elements that it ll keep the reader guessing at all times This book is what a real psychological thriller should be The twists and turns were well timed and the intrigue factor [...]
When I read the story line for this ebook, I couldn t wait for it s release The mystery sounded intriguing, unfortunately it failed to deliver There wasn t a single aspect of the story the mystery around the twins and where they were, the romance between the protagonist and her temporary partner that I would consider suspenseful While the crimes against the mentally handicapped children was awful, I felt that way because of my own morals and not because of any narrative by the author I thought t [...]
Just once once, damn it I want to read one of these mysteries wherein the detective isn t berated, stymied, threatened, or prohibited in their investigation by their boss Just once, I would be so impressed if the man who hired the person to do the job he has entrusted them with would actually just trust the person to do the damn job At least in many of these police procedural type mysteries, the protagonist is being condemned because what they want to do is dangerous or wildly outside the bounds [...]
Um policial bastante interessante e do qual gostei Confesso que tinha muitas expectativas cridas e como tal, fico um pouco aqu m do esperado Mas foi uma leitura que apreciei, apesar de achar que existiam muitas pontas soltas De qualquer forma, como penso que se trata de uma saga, provavelmente nos pr ximos livros teremos mais desenvolvimento das situa es

The premise for this mystery is great a body is discovered and then identified by her death certificate saying she died as a teen 30 years ago More intriguing She has a twin, also with a death certificate Is the twin still alive, did she live beyond her 30 year old death certificate and what really happened in the home for forgotten children The story gets grim and probes some ugly history of how the world used to treat children with mental physical deficiencies The author writes fluently and ca [...]

It was Ok I m sure if I read a lot crime mystery it wouldn t rank as high as some others.One mistake I made was not checking GR before I started reading I didn t realize this was book 4 in the series There were references to characters from prior books that probably would have made sense but overall I don t think I missed too much by not reading the prior books I think this will be a series that I can take or leave If I need an easy read I might pick up another one but I m not dying to read an [...]
Thank you to NetGalley and Grand Central Publishing for providing me with a free electronic copy of this book for review I received this book to review little over a year ago It sat on my shelf unread all that time Instead of informing the publisher that I hadn t had time to review the book, I kept re reading the book blurb and thinking that I really wanted to read this one Ultimately, I think the book was pretty much what I expected it to be It was good, some parts better than others, but not g [...]

This took entirely too long to read, but that s the life of a wrestling mom during season.I absolutely loved this book The Forgotten Girls is the first of a trilogy within a series But at no time did I feel lost or confused without reading the books that came before Sara gives enough background on the protagonist, Louise Rick so I felt like I wasn t missing anything vital I thought the mystery was solid and developed slowly There was definitely some creep value, which I loved The writing flowed [...]
