The Boy in the Suitcase (A Nina Borg Novel)


The Boy in the Suitcase: Holocaust

When security unzipped the insides, they found a boy smuggled in the suitcase. Fortunately, the young boy named Abou was still alive, and he told officers that he was from Africa’s Ivory Coast. The teen woman, who was not related to the boy, was arrested on the spot.

It later emerged that the woman who attempted to smuggle the boy through customs was not a relative and had been paid by the father to bring the boy in the suitcase across the border.

Ivory Coast boy smuggled to Spain inside suitcase - BBC

the boy's father said he did not know putting the boy in the suitcase would be the method of bringing him across the border. The man had reportedly applied for family reunification but had been denied, El Pais reports.

"The Boy in the Suitcase," by Lene Kaaberbøl and Agnete Fris, is set in and around Denmark, and definitely falls under the "Scandinavian Mystery/Thriller" genre in setting and style. For the record, I really enjoy this genre.
