Book Description

Next of Kin is the best-selling European thriller from crime writer Elsebeth Egholm, and the first of her popular ‘Dicte Svendsen’ series available in English.

Why do we fear strangers when often it's those closest to us who pose the greatest threat?

Fear and anxiety have spread to Denmark in the aftermath of the London bombings. Late one evening, journalist Dicte Svendsen receives an anonymous package containing footage of a brutal murder—a beheading carried out by a sabre-wielding figure dressed in black.Dicte and her old friend Inspector John Wagner form an uneasy alliance with the Danish secret intelligence service to identify the killer. As media reports unleash a wave of anti-Muslim hysteria across the country, panic escalates, and when Dicte’s teenage daughter is attacked, the investigation gets personal. Dicte has fought long and hard to put her dark past behind her—so how does the killer seem to know her deepest secrets?

Its a good book , but because its not the first of the series [ 1st translated ] I found that the story relied on what had happened in preceding novels. Definitely will read her next one now that I know what the characters foibles are.
If I had read the preceding books would have given five star. As it is three and a half to four stars.
