9780099546436: The Winter of the Lions (Detective Kimmo Joentaa)

In this haunting, atmospheric "snow-noir" tale, one of Finnish detective Kimmo Joentaa's colleagues has been found murdered

Every year since the death of his wife, Detective Kimmo Joentaa prepares a glass of milk and a bottle of vodka to arm himself against the isolation of Christmas and the harsh Finnish winter. But this Christmas Eve, his lonely routine is interrupted: first by the unexpected arrival of a damaged young woman and then by the murder of two men—one of them Joentaa's colleague on the police force.

About the Author:

Jan Costin Wagner is the author of three previous crime novels featuring Detective Kimmo Joentaa. The first, Ice Moon, was shortlisted for a Los Angeles Times Book Prize, while Silence, the second in the series, won the German Crime Prize and was the basis of a feature film.

Review:

"The way the crimes are solved is intriguing, if unorthodox, as is Joentaa's relationship with a mysterious prostitute who follows him home from the police station." --Laura Wilson, Guardian

"Excellent... this may be down to good translation, but Wagner's terse style is as crispy delineated as the figures he describes in the blank Finnish landscape. Snow-noir of the highest order." --Financial Times

"With its neatly drawn Finnish settings this tale is unshowy but very good." --Mail on Sunday
