Review:

" Excellent ... Wagner's terse style is as crisply delineated as the figures he describes in the blank Finnish landscape. Snow-noir of the highest order" ( Financial Times)

"Many authors claim to be influenced by Raymond Chandler but Jan Costin Wagner's work actually shows the master's touch" ( Globe and Mail)

"Wagner is excellent at letting us peer into the abyss of grief powering this story and the build of its finale has you flicking anxiously through the pages" ( Metro)

"Ethereal...a haunting book" (Maxine Clarke Eurocrime)

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

Book Description:

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