Described by Kirkus Reviews:
“Nazi collaboration, government cover-ups, kinky sex, a baby daughter waiting impatiently to be born and a vigilante-minded hero who talks back to his boss more irreverently than Dirty Harry.
What more could you want?”
Booklist: starred review
”…these plots form an impossible-to-put down read. Thompson’ second book, even better than the first, will surely be one of the best Nordic mysteries published in 2011. Essential reading for all fans of Arnaldur Indridason, Steig Larsson, Henning Mankell, and Jo Nesbo.”
Publishers Weekly: starred review
The review calls the book “stellar” and says “Thompson elegantly threads Finland’s compelling national history with Vaara’s own demons in this taut, emotionally wrought novel.”
