Danish Head of Homicide on the Maddie Case: The parents' explanation doesn't quite add up BT (Danish)

One of the most experienced homicide detectives in the Danish police force finds it entirely reasonable and natural for the Portuguese police to suspect the parents of four-year-old Madeleine McCann of being involved in her disappearance five years ago.

This is revealed by the former head of the Flying Squad's Homicide Section, Police Inspector Bent Isager-Nielsen in his latest book "The Homicide Detectives", which will be published next week.

"The police have been criticised by the McCann family and the British media for having interviewed Madeleine's parents at great length and for having said that they were suspects. Here I have to say that I agree with the Portuguese police," writes Bent Isager-Nielsen, who is currently Chief Detective at Copenhagen Vestegn Police.

The Madeleine McCan case has become one of the most spectacular disappearance puzzles after the little girl disappeared from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz in the Algarve, southern Portugal, on 3rd May 2007. It took place while her parents had allegedly left the girl and her two younger siblings asleep in the evening in order to dine alone at a nearby restaurant.

After some months of detective work the mother of the girl was officially charged and subjected to an 11-hour interrogation by the Portuguese police. It was suspected that the parents had accidentally killed their daughter by giving her too much sleep medication and had subsequently attempted to cover up the facts by pretending that their daughter had been abducted.

In spite of a reward of over 23 million kroner the case has still not been solved.

"There are all sorts of different types of parent, but there is something mysterious about their explanation that they had left the children asleep on their own while they went to a restaurant. I have no idea whether they killed Madeleine or whether she was indeed abducted, but for any police officer the parents in such a case shoud be obvious potential suspects," says Bent Isager-Nielsen.

In the book he emphasises that he only knows the Madeleine case from the press; and the experienced head of homicide is not unaware that the Portuguese police apparently made a number of mistakes during the fruitless preliminary investigations.

Bent Isager-Nielsen's new book is a sequel to the experienced Chief Detective's bestseller from 2008 "You Hunt Down a Beast and Catch a Human Being". This time he has collaborated with two other experts in the hunt for murderers ľ forensic pathologist Hans Petter Hougen and forensic anthropologist Niels Lynnerup ľ who have contributed their experiences.

The common theme of the book is an examination of investigative work in the case of the 29-year-old Iranian woman Mahnaz Keyvanipour, whose burnt remains were found in 1999 in a forest near K°ge. The killer turned out to be her Iranian ex-husband, who was convicted of murder the following year and deported from Denmark.

Perhaps he should read the files before he assumes that he doesn't know if she was abducted or not .

Perhaps his not coming to any conclusions sells his books.
