The Considerate Killer

Author(s): Agnete Friis

Fiction - Thriller

On her way home from grocery shopping, Nina Borg is attacked in a parking lot. Dazed and half-conscious, she hears her assailant ask for her forgiveness. Only later does she understand that this isn't for what he's just done, but for what he plans to do to. As a Red Cross nurse, Nina typically finds herself fighting for others' lives, not her own. For the first time, she's the primary target of a hit, and it slowly dawns on her that this case is connected to a surprising and dangerous friendship among three young men from Manila.

Praise for The Considerate Killer "Powerful... As in previous installments, Kaaberbol and Friis tackle social justice issues head-on." Mystery Scene "One of the most distinctive characters in contemporary fiction." Los Angeles Review of Books "If this indeed is the finale, the series will end on a high-flying note.... [W]e have four fine books in a series that demands to be read and re-read." "Chilling and startling...A very satisfying conclusion to a gripping series." Fresh Fiction's Fresh Pick "Uncompromising." Reviewing the Evidence "Intriguing." Booklist "Seldom do readers get to know a character who so wholeheartedly and blindly throws herself into the role of White Knight, constantly battling to do right, unceasing in her fight to give a voice to the powerless. Yes, the stories are excellent, but Nina is the reason I recommend this series." Kittling BooksPraise forDeath of a Nightingale ABBCFront RowBest Crime Novel of the YearAPublishers WeeklyTop 10 Mystery of the YearABook PageBest Mystery & Thriller of the YearAn IndieNext SelectionA Public Library Association LibraryReads Selection"[Nina] joins the sisterhood of run-amok heroines likeHomeland's Carrie Mathison and Lisbeth Salander ofThe Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Nina doesn't just have a bee in her bonnet she has a whole hive. And it's buzzing away in her latest adventure, Death of a Nightingale, an elaborately plotted page-turner that flits from today's liberal-minded Denmark and mobbed-up Ukraine to the starvation-racked Soviet Union of the Stalinist '30s." John Powers, NPR's Fresh Air "Death of a Nightingale is a gripping and elegant tapestry of a novel. A seamless weaving of psychological depth and rocket-paced plotting, the story hooked me in and the strong, complicated, and fascinating women at its center kept me utterly riveted cover-to-cover. Nina Borg is one of my new favorite heroines!" Lisa Unger, New York Timesbestselling author of In the Blood "Feminist outrage fuels the politically pointed novels of the Danish writing partners Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis . . . Nina is all heart and her efforts to bring justice to women like Natasha are heroic." New York Times Book Review "A moving story . . . [Kaaberbol and Friis] tell a socially conscious and, at times, critical tale about immigration issues that apply both to Denmark and the U.S. without sacrificing the urgency of the best thrillers." From the Hardcover edition."
