Black Notice by Lotte Petri Summary

Elegant, trumpet-like lilies, she thought. But there was something off. Something not right. It was the colour. It was strange, sort of pale and flesh-coloured... In a sleepy seaside town outside Copenhagen, a strange light at the bottom of the harbour has the police call in a military diver with a speciality in wet crime scenes. Deep down in the dark water sits a car, with the dead body of a young woman in the driver’s seat. The dead woman seems to have been the victim of a sadistic surgery. On some jagged cliffs off of a rural town in the south of Norway, a dog walker finds a partly skeletal corpse wearing a wetsuit. In their search for the identity of the victim, local police send out a black notice through Interpol, and before long another dead girl in a similar wetsuit is found all the way down in Holland. But when a woman bearing a scar similar to the others is found lifeless and icy cold in a forest lake, she could be the most important witness for the police — if only they are able to bring her back from the dead. Partly based on actual events, Black Notice is a thrilling Scandi Noir following the international hunt for a ruthless serial killer. Perfect for fans of Jo Nesbo, Samuel Bjork and Cara Hunter. Lotte Petri is a Danish crime fiction author. In 2009, her first book was nominated for Danske Bank’s Newcomer of the Year Award. Her Selma Eliassen series was lauded by critics, and in 2017, the first book in the series starring bone expert Josefine Jespersen, "The Devil’s Work", was released.

Black Notice: Episode 3 by Lotte Petri Summary

With the help of a surveillance camera in a French sports equipment shop, investigators manage to identify the wetsuit victims. They turn out to be two, young, Syrian twin sisters living in an infamous refugee camp in Calais, France. But the surveillance tape also shows a suspicious man who seems to be very interested in the young girls. Another murder of a Syrian refugee in Denmark prompts Norwegian and French investigators to agree that the killer is motivated by racism. But Felix Jørgensen’s gut instinct has him doubting that theory. He cannot say exactly why, but something isn’t right. But when an important witness manages to provide valuable information, Felix is now on the hunt for a man with lopsided pupils. Black Notice is a crime story told in five parts.

Satama-altaan pohjassa näkyy outo valo. Poliisi kutsuu paikalle puolustusvoimien sukeltajan, joka löytää veden syvyyksistä auton. Kuljettajanpenkillä on nuoren naisen ruumis, jolla on alavatsassaan pitkä leikkaushaava. Tapauksen tutkinnan saa vastuulleen Kööpenhaminan poliisi Felix Jørgensen.

Interpolin kautta annetaan hälytys – musta hälytys. Poliisi ei saa selville norjalaisen märkäpuku-uhrin henkilöllisyyttä. Silti on selvää, että nuoren naisen kuolema liittyy jollakin tavalla Felixin ja Kathrinen tutkimaan murhaan. Myös Kööpenhaminan pohjoispuolella olevasta metsäjärvestä löytyy eloton, jääkylmä nainen. Hänellä on samanlainen leikkausjälki kuin muilla uhreilla. Hänestä saattaa tulla poliisin tärkein todistaja – mikäli hänet pystytään herättämään henkiin kuolleista. Sitten maihin huuhtoutuu toinen nuori nainen märkäpuvussa. Tällä kertaa Hollannissa. Tositapahtumiin perustuva Black Notice on viisiosainen rikostarina.

Dziwne światło dochodzące z morskiego dna przy porcie Dragør skłania policję do wezwania specjalisty od mokrych miejsc zbrodni. W wodzie znajduje się samochód ze zwłokami młodej kobiety. Do sprawy zostaje przydzielony śledczy z wydziału zabójstw Felix Jørgensen, a jego nowa asystentka Kathrine Nymark musi przejść chrzest bojowy. Wydaje się oczywiste, że morderca znajduje się na wolności. Z badania zwłok wynika, że kobietę poddano sadystycznemu zabiegowi. Na urwistym, skalistym wybrzeżu najbardziej na południe wysuniętego skrawka Norwegii pewien mężczyzna znajduje fragment ludzkiego szkieletu w stroju płetwonurka. Początkowo policja sądzi, że chodzi o typowe utonięcie, ale opis nie pasuje do nikogo z miejscowych, a po dokładniejszych oględzinach na jaw wychodzi chirurgiczna interwencja w okolicach podbrzusza ofiary. Black notice jest powieścią kryminalną składającą się z pięciu rozdziałów. Historia została częściowo oparta na prawdziwych wydarzeniach.

Aby określić tożsamość znalezionych w Norwegii zwłok w skafandrze do nurkowania, policja decyduje się nadać komunikat przez Interpol – tak zwany black notice. Jednocześnie to morderstwo zostaje połączone z tym w porcie Dragør, gdyż obie ofiary zostały poddane identycznemu zabiegowi chirurgicznemu. Gdy przypadkowy biegacz odnajduje w leśnym jeziorze, w pobliżu Holte, martwą kobietę z takim samym nacięciem, staje się jasne, że policja ma do czynienia z nordyckim seryjnym przestępcą. Wyłowionej kobiecie cudem udaje się przeżyć, ale jest mocno wychłodzona i w śpiączce, dlatego śledczy z wydziału zabójstw, Felix Jørgensen, musi poczekać z jej przesłuchaniem. Gdy w końcu zostaje wybudzona, opisuje swojego oprawcę jednym, niezrozumiałym słowem. Wkrótce, w odpowiedzi na rozesłany black notice, pojawia się kolejne zgłoszenie – z Holandii. Szczególny rodzaj chipu wszytego w znaleziony skafander pozwala ustalić, że strój został zakupiony w sklepie w Calais, we Francji.

Red Notice by Bill Browder Summary

New York Times bestseller THE BOOK THAT EXPLAINS WHY RUSSIANS WANTED TO MEET WITH THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN “Part John Grisham-like thriller, part business and political memoir.” —The New York Times “[Red Notice] does for investing in Russia and the former Soviet Union what Liar’s Poker did for our understanding of Salomon Brothers, Wall Street, and the mortgage-backed securities business in the 1980s. Browder’s business saga meshes well with the story of corruption and murder in Vladimir Putin’s Russia, making Red Notice an early candidate for any list of the year’s best books” (Fortune). This is a story about an accidental activist. Bill Browder started out his adult life as the Wall Street maverick whose instincts led him to Russia just after the breakup of the Soviet Union, where he made his fortune. Along the way he exposed corruption, and when he did, he barely escaped with his life. His Russian lawyer Sergei Magnitsky wasn’t so lucky: he ended up in jail, where he was tortured to death. That changed Browder forever. He saw the murderous heart of the Putin regime and has spent the last half decade on a campaign to expose it. Because of that, he became Putin’s number one enemy, especially after Browder succeeded in having a law passed in the United States—The Magnitsky Act—that punishes a list of Russians implicated in the lawyer’s murder. Putin famously retaliated with a law that bans Americans from adopting Russian orphans. A financial caper, a crime thriller, and a political crusade, Red Notice is the story of one man taking on overpowering odds to change the world, and also the story of how, without intending to, he found meaning in his life.

Southern Cross by Patricia Cornwell Summary

Patricia Cornwell has a sixth sense about the men and women in blue. In Hornet's Nest, her page-turning novel about crime and police in Charlotte, North Carolina, Cornwell moved behind the badges of these real-life heroes to uncover flesh-and-blood characters who strode through her pages to reveal vulnerable, passionate, brave, sometimes doubting, always fascinating figures. In Southern Cross, Cornwell takes us even closer to the personal and professional lives of big-city police, in a story of corruption, scandal, and robberies that escalate to murder. This time, her setting is Richmond, Virginia, where Charlotte Police Chief Judy Hammer has been brought by an NIJ grant to clean up the police force. Reeling from the recent death of her husband, and resented by the police force, city manager, and mayor of Richmond, Hammer is joined by her deputy chief Virginia West and rookie Andy Brazil on the most difficult assignment of her career. In the face of overwhelming public scrutiny, the trio must bring truth, order, and sanity to a city in trouble.

The Invisible Gorilla by Christopher Chabris,Daniel Simons Summary

Reading this book will make you less sure of yourself—and that’s a good thing. In The Invisible Gorilla, Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons, creators of one of psychology’s most famous experiments, use remarkable stories and counterintuitive scientific findings to demonstrate an important truth: Our minds don’t work the way we think they do. We think we see ourselves and the world as they really are, but we’re actually missing a whole lot. Chabris and Simons combine the work of other researchers with their own findings on attention, perception, memory, and reasoning to reveal how faulty intuitions often get us into trouble. In the process, they explain: • Why a company would spend billions to launch a product that its own analysts know will fail • How a police officer could run right past a brutal assault without seeing it • Why award-winning movies are full of editing mistakes • What criminals have in common with chess masters • Why measles and other childhood diseases are making a comeback • Why money managers could learn a lot from weather forecasters Again and again, we think we experience and understand the world as it is, but our thoughts are beset by everyday illusions. We write traffic laws and build criminal cases on the assumption that people will notice when something unusual happens right in front of them. We’re sure we know where we were on 9/11, falsely believing that vivid memories are seared into our minds with perfect fidelity. And as a society, we spend billions on devices to train our brains because we’re continually tempted by the lure of quick fixes and effortless self-improvement. The Invisible Gorilla reveals the myriad ways that our intuitions can deceive us, but it’s much more than a catalog of human failings. Chabris and Simons explain why we succumb to these everyday illusions and what we can do to inoculate ourselves against their effects. Ultimately, the book provides a kind of x-ray vision into our own minds, making it possible to pierce the veil of illusions that clouds our thoughts and to think clearly for perhaps the first time.
