More About the Author

Sara Blaedel is one of Denmark's most successful crime writers, the author of seven bestselling novels featuring police detective Louise Rick.

Sara has come full circle from her childhood days of hearing her mother read Agatha Christie aloud. "It brings me peace to know that it all began with crime fiction as a child, and that it is there, after a thousand detours, that I have landed again. As a child I found peace in crime novels, and it is with them that I find peace today. There has been some turbulence along the way, but I wouldn't have avoided any of it. I wouldn't have reached the place I have without all of it happening." And that place Sara has reached includes seven published novels with an eighth on the way. Her novels are published in seventeen countries and appear in fifteen languages, and the film rights have been optioned. Her hard work and determination have branded her the "Queen of Crime" in Denmark.

Today, Sara lives north of Copenhagen with her family. She has always loved animals; she still enjoys horse riding and shares her home with her cat and golden retriever. When she isn't busy committing brutal murders on the page, she is an ambassador with Save the Children and serves on the jury of a documentary film competition.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Keris Nine on December 15, 2012
Format: Paperback
Sara Blaedel is one of the most highly rated and bestselling crime writers in Denmark, which means that her work is not only going to have to distinguish itself from the shelves filled with Scandinavian crime fiction, but with a strong female cop as the protagonist in her books, expectations are going to be raised and comparisons made to The Killing. Dealing with a case that is less sensationalised and rather more straightforward as a police procedural, Detective Inspector Louise Rick can't really live up to such expectations, but there are other aspects that make Call Me Princess a good solid thriller, and one that delves into some interesting areas.

That area of interest is the whole area of on-line dating and the dangers associated with rape. In Call Me Princess, a number of women have been tied up and brutally beaten while having consensual sex with a man they met on internet chat-rooms. Using aliases associated with nobility, he manages to appeal to a certain type of woman looking to for a man of old-fashioned charm and sophistication, but what develops in the bedroom is far from what the women expect. Inspector Louise Rick realises that not only are the boundaries blurred when it comes to the whole etiquette of on-line dating, but that there is a whole night-life subculture out there in Copenhagen that she is completely unaware of, and it's one that presents a particular challenge to the police.

Format: Hardcover
This is the first novel of Sara Blædel featuring her detective Louise Rick to be translated into English. Call Me Princess (original title Kald mig prinsesse) was originally published in it's native Denmark in 2005 and is the second in the ongoing series involving Louise. Other, as yet untranslated titles include -
1. Green Dust (Grønt støv 2004)
3. Only One Life (Kun ét liv 2007)
4. Never Free Again (Aldrig mere fri 2008)
5. Goddess of Revenge (Hævnens Gudinde 2009)
6. Angel of Death (Dødsenglen 2010)

The story involves around online dating and the search for a serial rapist who is selecting his victims through an online dating service. Louise's partner, best friend Camilla and her son also feature in the story and add a bit of background to Louise. The novel is a fairly easy read and makes me keen to read her next in the series.
Although based in Copenhagen, the book could be set in any mid-sized / large city. There is little in the book to suggest that the book is particularly Danish.
2011 has provoded us with a wealth of Danish crime fiction with the original The Killing [DVD] [2010], Jussi Adler-Olsen's The Keeper of Lost Causes and Sissel-Jo Gazan's The Dinosaur Feather. Later in 2011 two further Danish authors add to the smörgåsbord - Lene Kaaberbøl's Boy in the Suitcase, The (Nina Borg Mysteries) and Mikkel Birkegaard's Death Sentence.
Roll on the next one please Sara!

Format: Paperback
Oddly, though Blaedel is Danish, this story could as easily been set in any American city rather than Copenhagen. The place names were Danish but there was no wisp of Scandinavia. The plot was so so but only just. I hate the title. It's too twee and only becomes relevant late in the story. Homicide Detective Louise Rick and her partner investigate a rape. Soon the case grows legs when rapist's next victim dies and other women speak out about enduring similar attacks. The plot circles around the dangers of internet dating and its subculture. Blaedel states that there are two types of internet daters. One group post profiles to meet someone for a long term relationship then disappear from the dating sites when they find one. The other group becomes addicted to the online dating process and put profiles up in multiple places for long periods of time. They're serial daters who are not interested in the people they meet but the process of online dating. The rapist belongs to this second group. He's an online predator and knows how to disappear into the ethers after his crimes. Detective Rick's relationships with her best friend Camilla and her live in lover Peter also seem off. There's no evident affection between them and though Rick's well characterized neither Camilla nor Peter are. It wasn't a bad story it just wasn't good. Definitely steer clear of it if you're looking for one of the many great new Scandinavian books.

Format: Hardcover
The hot list of crime writers right now includes many from Sweden, Finland, Norway, Iceland and Denmark. Here's another author from Denmark to add to your list.

Call Me Princess marks Sara Blaedel's North American debut.

Assistant Detective Louise Rick of the Copenhagen P.D. is called in on the case of Susanne Hansson - a woman who has been brutally sexually assaulted. As Rick delves into the case, she discovers that Susanne met her attacker through an online dating site. Susanne's not the only victim of this online Lothario. He know how to hide though - he's left virtually no clues.

I enjoyed the character of Detective Rick and her interactions with her fellow officers. Blaedel has filled the department with an overbearing superior, a quiet family man partner and a publicity seeking chief. They were all comfortable if not original characters. The foray into Louise's personal life was a solid secondary story line. I did not like the best friend, newspaper reporter Camilla at all. She came across as a user of people. The interactions between her and Louse just never rang true as a best friend situation.

Blaedel has peppered her story with lots of red herrings. Many of the male characters seemed they could be the perpetrator at one time or another - the ending provided a good twist.

All in all, a solid police procedural utilizing current events as a effective plot device. It was an easy read - one that I was happy to pick up. For me, enjoyable but not outstanding.

Blaedel has an interesting background. She founded the first publishing house dedicated to crime fiction in Denmark. She was then inspired to write her own detective novels which have landed on the Danish bestseller lists. She has been voted the most popular novelist in Denmark in 2007, 2010 and 2011
