    One thought on “Invisible Murder”

    1. Caution: This book with infect you with the need for more Nina Borg!Invisible Murder is an intense look into the treatment of illegal immigrants, mainly Hungarian gypsies, and PET's counter-terrorism officials struggle to keep black market weapon traders from successfully selling items that threaten the Danish national security. Of course, large-hearted nurse Nina Borg is back, getting herself involved in life-threatening situations while treating the illegals denied medical access elsewhere. Ka [...]

    2. 4 stars.This book is an amazing feat for the authors: four wildly disparate plotlines all converge on do-gooder Red Cross nurse, Nina Borg. The plotlines each take a while to develop, so slowly that I wondered how it would all play out, until the exciting, explosive finish.I listened to this book on Audible, and I must say, the production was terrible. The narrator read the book very well, but the post-production editing was not completed. I lost track of the number of times sentences were repea [...]

    3. Love this book even more than the first book by the authors (THE BOY IN THE SUITCASE). I think it's a really, really special thing these authors do in creating thrillers that aren't about crooks or bad guys--they're about real people coming into conflict because of real-world pressures, need, and desperation. The realism makes the edge-of-the-seat action feel that much closer to home.

    4. "Invisible Murder" by Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis is a good thriller. I actually liked it more than the well-known "The Boy in the Suitcase" by the same pair of Danish authors because it reaches deeper into the layer of acute social issues. Without spoiling the plot, let's just say it involves Hungarian Roma (Gypsy) refugees in Denmark. Nina Borg is one of the main characters as is her teenage daughter Ida (a very well drawn portrait of a mixture of natural teenage stupidity and strength of [...]

    5. This is the second book following The Boy in the Suitcase featuring Danish nurse, Nina Borg. She works at a Red Cross facility that offers medical care to immigrants living in Denmark. She also occasionally works for a secret group, called the Network that helps illegal immigrants. She has promised her husband that she will not work for the Network while he's doing his two weeks of work on an ocean oil drilling platform and will take care not to put their two children at risk. Of course she is u [...]

    6. I really like the Boy in the Suitcase, so I was looking forward to this second book, but unfortunately this book is more like a cliche of the first book. the bad guys have no element to explain them, Nina has gone further away from believable. plus- I have trouble with the notion of the book, that Nina is the good guy.what's the point of trying to save the world if you sacrifice your own family?I did like the "surprise" ending, although I saw it coming in some form.

    7. If you're a fan of Stieg Larsson, or if you enjoyed The Killing, I think this book would appeal to you. It has that same dark, realistic, and gritty feel to it. Along with the murder, there is a lot of human drama surrounding the characters, and it was one of those books that I just didn't want to put down. More complete review to come.Full review:The description of this book made me a bit wary, because I'm not a big fan of spy novels or big books about terrorism. I'm more interested in novels t [...]

    8. I don't get it. These Scandinavians, plain and simple, have a flair for the psychological thriller mystery. For this series, with our heroine Nina Borg, I hate to admit that I was disappointed. "Nina Borg, a Red Cross nurse, wife, and mother of two, is a compulsive do-gooder who can't say no when someone asks for help. Even when she knows better." Sorry, but she doesn't seem very appealing. Her "need to do good" may have some psychological roots, but ultimately it feels like an annoying, not-qu [...]

    9. This Danish mystery series featuring Red Cross nurse Nina Borg in modern-day Copenhagen follows a long line of deliciously cosmopolitan and yet delightfully local novels translated and published by Soho Crime. Reading a few of the mysteries by these illustrious authors will give the reader an indication of the quality associated with Soho Crime: James Benn, Cara Black, Jassy Mackenzie, Leighton Gage, Timothy Hallinan, Martin Limon, Peter Lovesay, Qiu Xiaolong, Helene Tursten, Akimitsu Takagi, Ma [...]

    10. This follow up to The Boy in the Suitcase presents an even wider scope of crime and an almost entirely new cast of characters. Nina Borg still plays a large role in the events, but the real shining star is a new, Hungarian Roma character, Sandor. He becomes heartbreakingly entrenched in the plot, through no real fault of his own. Like in their first book, the conclusion doesn’t feel quite complete with most of the main characters’ personal storylines left open to interpretation (or perhaps o [...]

    11. I had previously read and enjoyed the author's first book in this series, The Boy in the Suitcase. I was looking forward to this book but I almost threw in the towel at page 75. The book has so many different plot threads and characters running through dIfferent countries. With so many nationalities and names I was unfamiliar with, it was quite difficult to keep everything straight. I am glad I stuck it out though because once the threads started converging together it made for quite the thrille [...]

    12. This was my first exposure to "Nordic Noir" and it was a fantastically written tale of deceit and family manipulation. The story was written in a style that is sort of Tarantino-like in that several separate story-lines converge bringing relatively normal people into extraordinary circumstances. The character development was top notch, and although it was a little slow to start, it reached a frenetic pace early and kept you on the edge of your seat till the great twist at the end. Perhaps the sl [...]

    13. This book starts out a bit slowly, many different threads to follow. Once they come together though the book really takes off and doesn't let up until the end. What I like most about this book is that it features, for the most part, regular people who get caught up in not so good things. Nina herself, is a character who tries to do the right things and ends up involved in situations that are life changing. Can't wait to find out what the author has in store for Nina next timeC from NetGalley.

    14. Lene Kaaberol and Agnete Friss's first Nina Borg book - The Boy in the Suitcase - was a New York Times bestseller. I've been eagerly waiting for the second book - Invisible Murder - from this Danish writing duo.Nina Borg is a Red Cross nurse living and working in Denmark. She works with the marginalized, the desperate and those who can't help themselves. Her official home base is the Red Cross's Coal House Camp. But Nina also works under the radar, helping out those who have no official status - [...]

    15. There is a mystery in this book, but not exactly a murder mystery. There is crime, but this isn't primarily about crime. What it is has a lot more to do with issues like immigration, prejudice, and the debt we owe to society to try to make things better. At least this is what the main character, Nina Borg, struggles with throughout the story. This book isn't mainly about Nina, however. Intertwined in her story is that of a half-Roma young man and his Roma family and background. I found that as i [...]

    16. Nurse Nina Borg’s compassion and her difficulties making her family understand and accept what she feels she must do are at the heart of this novel which is about ordinary people caught up in situations over which they have little personal control.The story begins in Hungary where two young gypsies scavenging an abandoned Soviet hospital facility stumble on an object promising to lift them and their families from poverty. Unfortunately, their efforts to find a buyer for this object put the lif [...]

    17. Invisible Murder is the second installment in the Nina Borg series and I enjoyed it quite a bit more than the first.In this installment, Nina isn't as "bleeding heart" or annoying (I was a little tired of her by the end of the first book - so many irritatingly irresponsible decisions)! She definitely felt more "real" this time and not as over-the-top with her actions and she garnered more sympathy from me as the reader.This story, like its predecessor, had many characters and the chapters bounce [...]

    18. 4 Stars*advanced reader’s copy*When two poor Roma boys discover an abandoned weapon under an old Soviet hospital they were only thinking about getting the money their families so desperately need, not about what that weapon could unleash on the world. When Danish Red Cross nurse Nina Borg gets a call that there are sick Roma children squatting in an abandoned auto shop she doesn’t think about the danger that being associated with them could bring on her and her family. The consequences that [...]

    19. When a protagonist is a Red Cross nurse and not police, there are some narrative risks and compromises. Detective thinking is obviously reduced, and the credible heroism of the nurse must be unfortunately stretched, as it is in the concluding pages here. So is the ultimate revelation of the crazed criminal, again in the last pages. The real strength of the novel lies in its empathy with the Roma of Eastern Europe, and the integrity of one young man who is tangled up in an attempt to pass into th [...]

    20. The book begins in Northern Hungary. Two teenage Roma boys break into a long abandoned military camp and stumble into discovering a substance of value. Little do they know the toxicity of their find. When nurse Nina Borg answers the call to tend to some sick immigrant Roma children, she neglects her promise to her husband, and rushes to their aid. But what is making them so ill? Where is the young man who seems to be the source of the illness? When Nina herself becomes violently ill, she does no [...]

    21. I just couldn't get into this story. I don't know if it was the terrorist angle or just too many darn characters/plots that I couldn't keep straight. Just like the first one, the action speeds up towards the end and forces you to continue but it's a long, hard journey getting to this point. Of course, everything is tied together but this becomes clear too late and I found myself not caring one way or the other.

    22. GAH this is a good series! Once again, the authors have found the perfect mix between big picture crime and personal motivations. Nina Borg's character continues to develop in heartbreaking and interesting ways. I enjoyed the first book in print, but did this one as an audiobook, and the reading was very good and the Danish words were mostly pronounced correctly. Yay!

    23. First Line: "Maybe we'll find a gun," Pitkin said, aiming his finger at the guardhouse next to the gate.To the teenage boys living near the abandoned Soviet military base in northern Hungary, it is a potential source of hidden treasure, an opportunity to sell what they find and treat themselves and their families to things the rest of the world seems to take for granted. When Pitkin and Tamás find something in the basement of the hospital, they know it's better than drugs or guns to sell on the [...]

    24. Red Cross nurse Nina Borg is a do-gooder who can’t say no regardless of the consequences to her marriage or her two children’s well-being. The older child, a fourteen-year-old girl, has consigned Nina to “Mom Hell. The place reserved for bad mothers, career women, alcoholics, and mentally unstable women where they might suffer for all eternity because they had dared to reproduce despite a complete absence of maternal qualifications.” In The Boy in the Suitcase, Nina found her life in dan [...]

    25. 1.5/5I picked up this book because it was on sale at Chapters for a ridiculously low price and the premise seemed promising. I love a good mystery/thriller so a story of a nurse "treating Hungarian Gypsies living illegally in a Copenhagen garage. What are they hiding? What makes them so sick?" was appealing. I was disappointed. The "mystery" of what is making people sick seemed relatively obvious so that thrill was gone for me. I also found this book to be incredibly violent. There were scenes w [...]

    26. Supplied by Random House New Zealand for reviewTwo Hungarian Roma boys investigate a hospital abandoned by the Russians after the collapse of communism. They find something and take it to sell on the black market. Tamar then steals the passport of Sandor, hi s half Roma brother and travels to Denmark to sell it. Sandor is then questioned by authorities about his terrorist connections and his Roma roots exposed. Sandor then travels to Denmark to find him after being told he’s sick.Nina Borg is [...]

    27. This novel, the second in the Nina Borg series, reminds me of an old MGM epic: A big cast. Broad geographical setting (in this case from Hungary to Germany to Denmark). A tale of Biblical proportions. And yet, despite all this complexity, the plot is pretty simple.It all begins when two young gypsy boys break into an abandoned Russian clinic in Hungary looking for some loot to sell. Instead they find a canister of cesium salt, a dangerous radioactive material which can be used to make a dirty bo [...]

    28. For some reason, I have a real problem getting through these books. Nina is a great character; the conflict that rang most true for me in this book is that within her family. I like the setting and the circumstances; but the way the story is told and the language just doesn't hold my attention! Part of this may be that (at least this book) is kind of derivative - if you read a lot of Scandinavian crime, you've probably been down this plot line before, or at least something similar. Probably more [...]

    29. Another excellent novel in this series, though, like the first, rather dark. And it's true, for many that's the way life is. So I sit here, reading dark novels and thanking my lucky stars that I personally have not had to face the situations that Nina has to, nor have I had to choose whether to risk my marriage because of the needs of others. Nina is a nurse in Copenhagen and helps out at a centre for refugees. She has also helped in the past a chsp who runs an illegal railroad for similar peopl [...]
