My "in a nutshell" summary...
Natasha Doroshenko has been arrested for murdering her fiancé. On her way to her interrogation she escapes. Nina Borg...a nurse...tries to help Natasha and her daughter but much is unknown about this woman and her past.
My thoughts after reading this book...
This book captured my attention in the opening pages. Natasha is being held by the police while her daughter is being cared for at a Red Cross facility und ...more
While an enjoyable read, I do think the novel would have been better served if I had read the previous two books in the series featuring Nina Borg before tackling this one. As it was, there w ...more
Nina is a Red Cross nurse working in a Danish refugee camp. She's passionate about her work and the people she looks after - to the detriment of her own life. Her marriage has broken down and she's lost custody of her children.
Death of a Nightingale continues the story of two of the residents of Coal House Camp - Ukrainian national Natasha and her daughter Katerina. Natasha has ...more
The books take place in Denmark which, like many other Western European Countries, has been faced with an influx of Eastern European refugees trying to find a better life. Nina is now divorced, has a mild case of OCD, is not the most personable of people, but she cares desperately.

Well this time, I made it over 200 pages in and then I realized I just had nothing invested in the book or the characters. The main protagonist Nina Borg is merely there just so they can say its part of ...more
Surprise: DEATH OF A NIGHTINGALE is very good as long as it doesn't bother you that you can't pronounce most characters' names. It also has a slower beginning than lovers of thrillers expect. But it doesn't take long for some mysterie ...more
The book skips back and forth between Nina's present day time and the story of two young women growing up in Stalinist Ukraine in 1934, the time of the terrible famine. The story of the two young girls growing up during the famine is one that keeps the reader fascinated.
As I said previously, this book is the third book in the Nina Borg ser ...more
This is (I think) the third Nina Borg book from authors Lene Kaaberbol and Agnete Friis. Their first was The Boy in the Suitcase, which was very well received, and their second was Invisible Murder, which I just found right now while trying to figure out the backstory here.

Shaped by the past
This is yet another story of crisis as lives intersect. It is told from the point of view of the past, in Ukraine, and the present, in Denmark. Nina continues her work with refugees, becoming over-involved in the lives of Natasha and her young daughter Katerina. She is in the process of recovering from her divorce and the loss of her own family, and uses Katerina's needs as a way to comfort herself.
But the connection to the Ukrainian refugees will become very complicated and...more
