Helsinki Homicide: Vengeance
6 journalers for this copy...
From the back:
"Tapani Larsson, a Finnish crime boss, walks out of prison with one thought on his mind: Vengeance. Wanting to reclaim his gang's honor and avenge those who have wronged him, Larsson targets Suhonen, the undercover detective who put him in prison. Meanwhile, Suhonen's best friend, an ex-con himself, wants to wash his hands of crime, but in the process, is driven deeper into it.
With the help of his boss, Liutenant Takamäki, and the National Bureau of Investigation, Suhonen hunts the loose thread that could unravel the entire gang. But with every string he pulls, he flirts with death itself.
Helsinki Homicide: Vengeance is another thrilling read from Sipilä. It is the second of his books to be translated into English. The first, Helsinki Homicide: Against the Wall, won the 2009 Finnish Crime Novel of the Year Award.
Jarkko Sipilä is a Finnish author and journalist. He has been reporting on Finnish crime for 20 years, has written 11 books, and co-wrote a TV series based on the Takamäki books. Through realistic characters and story lines, he explores current topics surrounding life in contemporary Finland."

Just returned from the August meet up at Cravings and have just about as many books as I brought. I have been enjoying some of the Finnish/Swedish mysteries I have read.

I enjoy reading mysteries from other countries. This one was especially interesting due to the issues regarding nearby Estonia and the drug importing happening from there. Liked his writing style. I made an error and picked up the book close to 11, thinking I would read for a few minutes before bed and ---- it was too close to the end. Had to stay up until close to1 to finish it!!
