The Forgotten Girls

Sara Blaedel’s The Forgotten Girls is a perfect example of Scandinavian mysteries. Its a stark setting, with overworked and dedicated police officers, dealing with a social injustice that penetrates Denmark’s society.

The Forgotten Girls were institutionalized during a time when family kept mental illness a secret. They truly were forgotten until one ends up dead in a forest more than 30 years after her death certificate was signed.

Blaedel’s Inspector Louise Rick and journalist Camilla Lind dive into a defunct mental institution to try to find the identity of a women found dead. The different interests of the two friends come at the mystery with different intentions, but both have the same goal of helping.

This was a great read with a disturbing and horrific ending.
