Blue Blood opening line: The pain cut into her wrists, and she couldn’t react because her hands were tied so tightly behind her back.
This is the first Sara Blaedel book I have read and I must say, it won’t be my last. The books are translated from Danish and other than the road names which stay the same, you would not know that they were not written in English originally. Usually when choosing a new book to read I would decide based on the blurb on the back cover. This one reads: one by one, he lures them to their deaths….However, this book is not about murder. It is about sadistic rape and has a story line worth reading.
This is my first encounter of Detective Inspector Louise Rick, a homicide detective whose personal life is intertwined with the case, albeit unknowingly. In the world of online dating danger lurks and Louise finds herself in unfamiliar territory when trying to catch a serial rapist, a man who charms women before brutally harming them.
Blue Blood falls into the category of a book worth reading. It took me a week of reading at night only to get through the book which is average for me.
Disclosure: I was sent the book to review by Penguin Books South Africa. I was not required to write a positive review. This is in line with my blogging policy.

I really should find time to read.
I cannot go to sleep without reading!
The Danes are making a lot of brilliant TY dramas as well. Even with subtitles, they get huge viewing figures in the UK.
They clearly have an understanding of drama!
it is a good read!
I must say that blogging has interfered with my regular reading schedule.
Which is why I only read blogs in the morning!
Tandy, I love these kinds of books, and I can never understand why I enjoy them so much. I am a VI Warshawski fan – have you read those – Sara Paretski? This looks a goo read, thanks for the recommendation!
I have not read any of her books – I shall take a look and see if I can download one 🙂 PS The dystopia post had me sounding very intellectual last night when I discussed a young teens book selection with him!
Great review this book has me intrigued 🙂
