Review

Dark and chilling as a fjord on a December night. If you like crime fiction that is genuinely scary, then Sara Blaedel should be the next writer you read. If you have yet to discover the Queen Of Danish Crime, then you're in for a treat. (Mark Billingham, internationally bestselling author of RUSH OF BLOOD)

Sara Blaedel is a remarkable crime writer. (Karin Slaughter)

Exciting and thrilling...Louise Rick is a character who will have readers coming back for more. (Camilla Lackberg)

Consistently suspenseful until the very last sentence. (Politiken)

I am a sucker for the Scandinavian thriller craze, and Blaedel is one of the best I've come across. (Michael Connelly)

Book Description

The UK debut from the million copy Danish No.1 crime bestseller and international smash-hit

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid procedural, intriguing subject 20 Dec 2012
By Keris Nine TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
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. Blue Blood - published previously as Call Me Princess - and Detective Inspector Louise Rick, dealing with a case that is less sensationalised and rather more straightforward as a police procedural, can't really live up to such expectations, but there are other aspects that make this 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 Blue Blood, 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.

One of the worst books I've ever read. Poor plot and didn't care for the characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars still quite a good read 10 May 2014
By Cloggie Downunder TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Blue Blood (also titled Call Me Princess) is the second book in the Louise Rick/Camilla Lind series by popular Danish novelist, Sara Blaedel. It is the first book in the series to be translated into English. When Assistant Detective Louise Rick is called to the hospital to talk to Susanna Hansson, the victim of a brutal rape, she is met with some reluctance to reveal all the pertinent facts. When she eventually establishes that Susanna first met her attacker online, Copenhagen’s police force is mobilised to track the perpetrator down. But before much headway is made, the rapist strikes again, and this time, the victim dies. Rick’s friend and Morgenavisen crime journalist, Camilla Lind is hoping for headlines, but her personal use of online dating is more of an issue for Louise. Rick’s focus on the case is also distracted by tensions with her boyfriend. This enthralling crime novel touches on the topical issues of online dating, the aftermath of sexual assault and sexual discrimination in the police force. The plot is gripping, with a few twists and several exciting climaxes, but the execution is sometimes a little clumsy and somewhat tedious in its excessive detail. The translation by Erik J. Macki and Tara F. Chase is generally satisfactory, although some parts are rather clunky. As the main protagonist, Louise Rick is a flawed and occasionally quite abrasive, but nonetheless genuine character, and it will be interesting to see what Blaedel has in store for Louise and Camilla in future instalments. Not a breathless page-turner, but still quite a good read.

This is the second book I have read in the series and I will be reading the rest. I'm obsessed with Nordic crime fiction and this is the first Danish writer I have really liked. Just about to buy the next one.
