I read this on Kindle, and there were some formatting issues (accented letters not appearing correctly) and choices (the first few words of new sections/chapters were a lighter color than the rest) that were a bit distracting, but I am not considering them in this review. There are also a few odd choices of phrase, which I attribute to this being a translated book (the story takes place primarily in Denmark, where it was originally published).

I was a bit lost at the beginning of the book, as it does take a nonlinear approach to storytelling, but quickly fell into the story of a woman, Nina Borg, who agrees to help out a friend with whom she’s sort of fallen out of touch by picking up a suitcase for her from a locker. Nina is shocked when she opens the suitcase and finds a naked toddler inside.

The rest of the book mainly consists of Nina trying to uncover the boy’s identity and how he came to be in the suitcase. I think the less you know about the mystery, the better you will enjoy watching it unfold.

The story hops around to viewpoints of several different characters, but aside from the spotty beginning, it really isn’t hard to differentiate them. The voices are unique, which I appreciated.

The pacing was handled well. This is a very intense read, and the stakes get higher and higher as time goes on. It is a very gripping thriller.

My main complaint with the novel is that several times we are told things about Nina and her past that are never fully explained. I’m not sure if this is something that was lost in translation, or if it is a part of her character that is more fully explored in later books in the series, but it is the reason I can only give this 4 out of 5 stars.

I would recommend to people who enjoy crime thrillers, translated works, and books involving children in peril.

The Boy in the Suitcase is a crime mystery set mostly in Denmark. The opening chapter has the heroine of a series of these books go to the train station to retrieve a suitcase for a friend of hers. When she opens the suitcase, she finds a naked, drugged, three year old boy in there. And from there, we are off on an adventure of figuring out who the child is, where he came from, and why was he in the suitcase in the first place. The main background theme of this book, in my opinion, are the relationships of four couples with their desires for children. We read about Nina Borg and her relationships with her two children and husbad; Jan and Anne Marquat and their son; and Janucs and Barbara and their desire for a life for themselves and children; and finally Sigita and Darius and their convoluted relationship.

As the story goes along we read of each of the couples and their desires for children and what it means to them. The books is structure with each short chapter taking a look at one of the couples in either the current time, or in the past, to give the reader some sense of how all these characters happen to come together in this story. This can be somewhat confusing in the beginning of the book as each chapter bounces around to someone else, but eventually the reader gets enough of the back story to start making sense of it all and at that point the chapters focus on the current events - from the viewpoint of each different protagonist. While I, as the reader, formed some opinions about the characters and what they were doing throughout the book, I was taken by surprise by some plot twists that were introduced. Without giving these major plot twists away, there is one in the middle of the book, and another towards the far end which really make the whole story come together in a way that makes sense. By the end of the book, everything comes together in a coherent whole and when things get resolved, they are resolved in a way that makes sense. The bad guy, or guys, get their due, and we find out not only who the boy in the suitcase is, but why he was there. There is a small epilogue in which it is clear that Nina Borg is the hero of a series of stories and sets the stage for other such stories in the future.

I found this book to be an interesting read. It is written by two female writers so perhaps that explains why it appears that most of the story is told from the women's point of view while the males are mere cartoonish characters. Nonetheless, the story holds together and the way the plot evolves and gets resolved makes sense for the most part. The writing is engaging and it's a book that - once you get going in it - you will want to finish just to see how it ends. One of the interesting things for me was that it was set amongst various European countries and cultures from Denmark to Lithuania with a bit of Polish thrown in to boot. While the cultural differences did not come into play, there were some comments about the different lifestyles and how the Westerners and Easterners reacted to it all. This is a good book and deserves a four star rating , which is what I am giving it.

This turned into a page turner for me. It started a bit slow but the tension builds.
Nina is a complex and, at times, an exasperating character but very likeable. One can see how she would be the type of person to end up in a situation like this.
She handled the various situations in a believable manner. The internal thought processes of the different characters were in line with their actions.
The only thing I wish had been included was closure with Jan and Anne, Sigita, and Barbara. It would have been nice to know how the criminal issues were resolved instead of just jumping forward to Nina at home with next emergency unfolding.
I don't want to give away the story so other readers can discover it themselves. I will say I did not see the real motive until the denouement. It made me feel like a detective trying to find a resolution based on the clues and the ending was a real stunner.

Multiple plot scenarios going on. Switches between various scenes left gaps, was confusing and not well done. Abrupt ending that did not complete the many character's stories.
Felt like you ran into a brick wall. I almost wondered if my Kindle had not download the entire book!!!

I had to stop forcing myself to read after the 5th chapter. Too confusing and too difficult to follow. Maybe if I had several solid hours in a row I wanted to devote to this book I could get into it. But I found it sad and depressing. I don't even know what it was about after 5 chapters although there were hints of child kidnapping, domestic abuse and violence to women. I would rather have my time reading a less depressing book. Maybe it got better, but not worth my limited time. I have never returned a Kindle book, but would have like to return this one, but I found out that can only be done within 7 days of purchase and not always allowed. No problem since this was a very inexpensive book.
