Description
‘An exceptionally promising debut' Seura Anna Fekete, who fled the Yugoslavian wars as a child, has a past. Just beginning her career as a criminal investigator in a northern Finnish coastal town, she is thrust into a high-profile, seemingly unsolvable case that has riveted the nation. It doesn't help that her middle-aged new partner, Esko, doesn't bother hiding his racist prejudices, and Anna becomes the target of a systematic campaign to unsettle her. A young woman has been killed on a running trail, and a pendant depicting an Aztec god has been found in her possession. Another murder soon follows. All signs point to a serial killer, but can Anna catch the Hummingbird before he – or she – strikes again? And at what personal cost? Dark, gritty and filled with contemporary themes, this is a chilling, unforgettable book that you will find impossible to put down. Or forget. ‘Hiekkapelto knows how to get under people's skin' MTV3; ‘If you're a fan of Swedish crime queen Camilla Läckberg, you'll love Hiekkapelto' Kaleva; ‘Here is an author who, with her first detective novel, trounces the Swedes. Läckberg & Co. feel clunky once you've had a chance to devour the realistic, engrossing and vitally topical story about Yugoslav Hungarian Anna Fekete, a criminal investigator from a northern Finnish coastal town' Viva
