Description

If you’re a fan of Jo Nesbo’s Harry Hole, you’ll love Inspector Vaara.

‘We don’t talk about hatred, we hate in silence. It’s our way. We do everything in silence.’

One hundred miles inside the Arctic Circle, Sufia Elmi, a beautiful and enchanting Somali movie star, is found dead – her body stripped naked and mutilated.

Detective Kari Vaara is determined to get right to the heart of the hate crime. As the media reaches fever pitch, suspects emerge. Among them a past figure Vaara would rather forget.

Meanwhile, his American wife Kate is struggling to cope, pregnant and isolated in her new home.

In the thick of a cruel, endless winter, who is cold enough to kill?

From Publishers Weekly

19 October 2009 – American-born Thompson, who's lived in Finland for the past decade, offers a bleak look at the ravages of that country's long, dark winter as well as intriguing glimpses of Finnish culture in his solid U.S. debut, the first in a new crime series. Shortly before Christmas, Kari Vaara, the police chief of the Lapland town of Kittilä, gets a phone call informing him that the body of Sufia Elmi, a Somali refugee and minor film star, has been found in a snowfield on a reindeer farm. The victim has also been mutilated, perhaps raped, and a racial slur carved into her flesh. When Kari's ex-wife's lover becomes the prime suspect, Kari spurns the chance to recuse himself and presses on. The winter hazards of alcoholism, suicide and murder all play a part as Kari uncovers more suspects. Sufia's imperious father, Abdi Barre, who was a doctor in his native country and now runs a cleaning service, puts added pressure on Kari. Tangled smalltown relationships and lust also fuel this noirish thriller.

Not bad

An ok read. My first iPad purchase and an easy read for on the train type of thing. Predictable though and characters a bit shallow.
