The Forgotten Girls - Sara Bl├Ždel

3.5 Two young girls, both mentally challenged, are institutionalized as their mother died in childbirth and their father can no longer care for them. At the institution, the father is told that his visits upset them and is told to forget about them and get on with his life. When the girls are eighteen the father is told that they have both died from pneumonia. How then to explain when the body of one of the girls, 30 years later, is found. Where has she been all these years? Where is her twin?

Louise has taken over a new police unit and this is the first in a planned series featuring her new unit. Very suspenseful, more than one case that eventually will come together and finely written. The plot is
full of surprises personal ones and processional. Very good start to this new series. What they find in a barn is very creepy and will effect Louise in personal ways. To find out though, you will have to read this book.
