I have enjoyed this mystery series, set in Finland, since its very first installment. Each book has had something of an ominous ending, making me eager to read the next in the series as Kari Vaara continues to develop. This book, however, was a much darker read than any in this already fairly grim series. His career takes quite a turn, and as the plot builds, one thing leads to another, making Vaara a different man than the one I at least first grew to like in the series' debut, Snow Angels.
The ending was a bit more hopeful than some of the others, and I will definitely continue to read this series where the Finnish setting is perhaps even a larger character than Vaara himself. I just hope that the next one is a mystery with a bit less of a political focus... Race relations in Finland are certainly interesting, but the mystery behind this plot was not as well developed as the other two installments in the series.
