Book 1 in the best-selling Roland Benito series.
On a humid and rain-filled summer day in the Danish suburb of Brabrand, the body of a ten-year-old girl is found lifeless in a dumpster. Detective Inspector Roland Benito has recently moved from Italy to Denmark and is immediately put on the case.
Anne Larsen, reporter, and freelance photographer, Kamilla Holm, are covering the case for The Daily News and the deeper they look into the story, the more entangled they become. It quickly becomes apparent to all involved, that the crime is linked to an internet chat site where the murdered girl had a profile. The hunt for the killer is on.
But things start to get complicated when the victim’s best friend mysteriously disappears. She too had a profile on the chat site. She too lied about her age.
‘Doll Child’ is the chilling story of the dark side to the internet, where no-one knows who is hiding behind that email address.
For fans of Lynda La Plante and Ian Rankin.
