An Italian detective in Denmark must stop a deadly Internet predator in this thrilling series debut available for the first time in English.
On a rainy summer day in the Danish suburb of Brabrand, the body of a ten-year-old girl is found in a dumpster. Detective Inspector Roland Benito, having recently moved from Italy to Denmark, is immediately put on the case. When the crime is linked to an online chatroom where the murdered girl had a profile, the hunt for the killer is on.
Reporter Anne Larsen and photographer Kamilla Holm are covering the investigation for the Daily News, but the closer they look, the more entangled they become. And things only get more complicated when a second child—the original victim’s best friend—suddenly disappears. She too had a profile on the mysterious website. She too lied about her age.
Dead in the Skip is a chilling story about the dark side of the Internet, where no one knows who’s hiding behind that username . . . or what they’re capable of.
