Emotionally riveting and filled with unexpected twists, The Midnight Witness is a tour-de-force from international phenomenon Sara Blaedel.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Intrepid Danish police detective, Louise Rick, is back on the job…[and] finds herself juggling both cases, plus the demands of her own longtime boyfriend.” New York Times Book Review
“The Louise Rick novels are must-reads for fans of Scandinavia’s female police detectives, such as Anne Holt’s Hanne Wilhelmsen and Helene Tursten’s Irene Huss.” Booklist
“Denmark’s internationally bestselling Queen of Crime sets Detective Louise Rick a challenging task: even as she’s investigating a young woman’s strangling, she gets caught up in the murder of a male journalist…Blaedel delivers another solid story with a surprise twist ending. Recommended for fans of the series and for those who enjoy contemporary Scandinavian mysteries.” Library Journal
“Two homicide cases provide the procedural backdrop for the emotional trials both women endure to function in worlds still dominated by men. Louise, the only woman on the police homicide team, rebels against office politics and her superior’s prioritization of Frank’s murder over Karoline’s. Camilla clashes with her male boss, who sidelines her and dictates her approach to stories. Readers will relate to the women’s travails.” Publishers Weekly
