The House Of Dolls

British author David Hewson is better known for writing two novels based on the hit Danish television show, The Killing, but this time, he’s in Amsterdam. The novel follows a retired police detective who left the force after his own daughter was kidnapped and is still missing. When another girl is kidnapped in a similar fashion, he’s reinstated to solve the crime.

Though the book doesn’t focus at all on the international experience, the vivid portrayal of Amsterdam and Dutch culture make for a great read for any newcomer to the country.
