I actually really liked this mystery set in Finland, and I especially love finding new series to follow! This debut exceeded my expectations. The relaxed, and laid-back writing style belied the novel's twisting plot. It was a fast read, and a surprisingly brief novel, but in this shorter span of pages, Thompson crammed in a lot of interesting elements and it all worked so well. By the end, I grew to really like all the characters and am utterly fascinated with the Finland that Thompson has presented here. The sequel will be released in one week from finishing this, and I am already looking forward to reading it - I am glad that I don't have too long to wait! It was unpredictable and completely absorbing!
