Suddenly, Nina’s past catches up with her in a dark alley, and she only escapes thanks to her quick reflexes and hard knuckles. Then, she gets a call from the institution where Gabriela is still imprisoned, and it’s not good news …Steffen Jacobsen’s debut novel The Passenger (Passageren in Danish) came out in 2008, but his big break came in 2013 with Trophy.
