Snow Angels is an excellent and very noir crime fiction – well plotted, well written in a style that perfectly suits the mood and tempo of the story, with well drawn characters, is very suspenseful, and a real, utterly fascinating, treat.

Synopsis

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.
