Review of "Death of a Nightingale" by Lene Kaaberbøl and Agnete Friis

In this third book in the series, Natasha - a Ukrainian woman living is Denmark - is in prison for attempted murder. She escapes police custody and is desperate to reunite with her eight-year-old daughter Katerina. The girl has been living in a refuge, cared for by nurse Nina Borg (the 'star' of the series). Meanwhile, there are a lot of complex things going on and other people want to get their hands on little Katerina.

The book's structure - going back and forth in time - became confusing. And there were so many minor characters that they started to blend together and it was hard to remember who was who.

Still, I would have liked the book better if the ending was more complete and resolved. When I fiinished the book I couldn't quite figure out exactly what happened all those years ago that drove all the components of the story.

Rating: 3 stars
