Previously Ms. Blædel explored drugs, honor killings, online dating and more. This time however the author turns her sights on prostitution and trafficking women. The book is very well written and it seemed to me that the author has upped a notch her research and storytelling. I was surprised that instead of writing fallacies and inaccuracies, as many others do, Ms. Blædel examined the issues objectively and inserted them into her novel. For example, the point that few prostitutes are…

The book touches on some relevant topics, such as honor killing, social intolerance and sexual based crimes. The author explores these subjects, and more, without forcing her own morality or ideology down the readers’ throats, which is a big plus for me. I love to read about…

About: “Call Me Princess” by Sara Blædel is a crime fiction book taking place in Denmark. This is the first book translated by this successful and popular Scandinavian author. 352 pages Publisher: Pegasus ISBN-10: 1605982512 My rating for Call Me Princess – 4 Buy & Save on “Call Me Princess” through the ManOfLa­Book affil­i­ate account on: Ama­zon | Kin­dle | Book Depos­i­tory US | Book Depos­i­tory UK Thoughts: “Call Me Princess” by Sara Blædel (website | Facebook | Twitter) is a good, solid crime fiction book. I requested this book because I’ve read several crime-fiction novels from Scandinavian authors and sincerely liked them so I figured I’ll read as much as I can before I am forced to learn Danish.
