THE BOY IN THE SUITCASE

Author:  Lene Kaaberbol
Genre:  Thriller, Nina Borg Series #1
Published:  2011
Personal Rating:  3.75/5 (good +)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/
Katherine Kellgren
Yearly Count:  91


Nina Borg, a nurse living in Denmark, is asked by an estranged friend to pick up a suitcase from a train station locker.  Once on her way, she is shocked to discover that there is a boy curled up inside.  

I'm still looking forward to the second book in this series (because I know it has potential), but I was a little disappointed in this one.  In the beginning, there were many characters introduced, and I was confused as to how they fit in with the plot.  Another part of my confusion must have stemmed from the narration of the audiobook because chapters weren't crisply defined.  And if they were, it wasn't keeping me glued enough to notice. As the story moved along, some of Nina's actions were incomprehensible, making it unrealistic, as well.  That is probably the worst offense.  However, even with all the negative, I still liked the book.  The plot was intriguing, and I wanted to know the full story.  My hope is that the second will be stronger.
