It was clearly no ordinary drowning. Inspector Louise Rick is immediately called out to Holbraek Fjord when a young immigrant girl is found in the watery depths, a piece of concrete tied around her waist and two mysterious circular patches on the back of her neck. Her name was Samra. Samra's best friend Dicte thinks it was an honour killing. A few days later Dicte is discovered, bludgeoned to death, and Samra's younger sister has gone missing. Rick must navigate the complex web of family and community ties in Copenhagen's tightly knit ethnic communities to find the answers.

Much better than "Call Me Princess" the previous book I read by the author. It's an ok story, a sort of Nordic Grey, not Noire. The structure seemed meandering at times, and the I guessed the villain about half-way through. It's kind of obvious amidst a parade of red herrings. The story is essentially a police procedural without any heart-thumping tension.
