Jarkko Sipilän uusin rikosromaani pureutuu ajankohtaiseen todistajansuojelun ongelmaan.

Alatason kokaiinikauppias on ammuttu asuntonsa eteiseen Helsingin Alppilassa. Tappaja on saatu kiinni, mutta murharyhmä on varma, että taustalta löytyy jotakin muuta. Kenen käskystä nuori mies sai luodin otsaansa? Kuka oli keikkakuskina?

Ahmaisin kirjan kerralla enkä malttanut laskea käsistäni ennen kuin paha sai palkkansa.

For the most part, this is a standard police procedural with a focus upon the working of the witness protection system in contemporary Finland. The writing is too dry for my taste.

The ending of the novel also seems rather unlikely to me, but maybe I just don't understand the Finns.

Originally reviewed in Crime Fiction Lover

In the past ten years, the overwhelming success of Scandinavian crime fiction has seen Sweden, Denmark and Norway lead the way. Yet Finnish noir is still hard to come by, with just a few exceptions. Publisher Ice Cold Crime aims to rectify this deficit by translating the Helsinki Homicide series by Jarkko Sipilä.

Fans of Scandinavian detective figures like Harry Hole and Inspector Sejer are used to series being translated out of order, and Helsinki Homici

While the rest of the Scandinavian and Nordic crime is insanely popular, there just isn't just enough Finnish crime out there in English.
Sipilä has had some books out here in the US published by his brother's Ice Cold Crime Llc, which is a good start. Yet it takes quite a while before you find a copy anywhere in the bookstores, and even longer if you hope to find a copy in a library.
But finally...
And all three Helsinki Homicide books. Now where did I get the correct order again? This one is th

Shelves: crime
Tässä sarjan kuudennessa kirjassa oli juuri sopiva näkökulman muutos, joka piristi sarjaa pikakelauksena ahmivaa. Itse rikos ei sinänsä ollut keskiössä vaan pääosassa oli vakavan rikoksen todistaja ja hänen asemansa systeemissä. Ja se, mitä oikeusvaltiossa voidaan todistajan suojelemiseksi tehdä. Tämä olisi voinut saada neljä tähteä, jos loppuratkaisu ei olisi ollut liian sarjakuvamainen.

Shelves: dekkarit
Ehkä vähän tylsä Takamäki-kirja, jossa murhan syytä ei oikeastaan sen tarkemmin eritelty ja jossa osa henkilöhahmoista oli todella typeriä ja naiiveja, kuten vanginvartija... Lisäksi ihmetytti päähenkilön yhtäkkinen mielenmuutos suojelun suhteen. Ei niin uskottava kuin jotkut aiemmista Sipilän kirjoista.

Gritty Finnish Noir that seems to run out of steam but then intelligently brings everything together.
