Danita L (ladygoshawke) | 657 comments Add the following description:

Hella Mauzer, the first female Helsinki murder squad detective, is dispatched to a remote Lapland village near the Soviet border by her chauvinistic boss to investigate an old man’s disappearance.

Embittered by the death of her entire immediate family during WWII and her recent breakup with her married lover, the 30ish, stiletto-tongued Hella tries to behave professionally like a man, but she defies male authority by using her instinct for detecting half-truths and her compassion for the weak to try to solve what initially appears to be a minor missing person case.

With the discovery of the body of a Soviet doctor, it mushrooms into something much more complex involving institutional corruption and international intrigue.
