Description

A Booklist Best Crime Novel Debut

“Don’t miss this one.”—USA Today
"A masterful job." -Michael Connelly


It is called kaamos--two weeks of unrelenting darkness and soul-numbing cold that falls upon Finnish Lapland, a hundred miles into the Arctic Circle, just before Christmas. Some get through it with the help of cheap Russian alcohol; some sink into depression.

This year, it may have driven someone mad enough to commit murder. The brutalized body of a beautiful Somali woman has been found in the snow, and Inspector Kari Vaara must find her killer. It will be a challenge in a place where ugly things lurk under frozen surfaces, and silence is a way of life.

    Kept me guessing until the very end. Characters were well described, and the scenery was so descriptive that I felt pulled into the story. A must read for anyone who enjoys a suspenseful mystery!
