Book Description

April 3 2013
Lorsque Timo Korvenso apprend qu'on a trouvé une bicyclette rouge à l'endroit exact où, trente ans plus tôt, une adolescente retrouvée morte dans un lac voisin avait laissé la sienne, le silence sous lequel il avait cru enterrer son passé devient tout à coup assourdissant. Poussé comme par une force irrépressible, il laisse derrière lui le bonheur familial qu'il avait patiemment construit et part sur les traces d'un crime pour lequel personne n'a jamais payé. Dans la lumière blanche de l'été nordique, derrière la gaieté trompeuse des lacs finlandais, le commissaire Kimmo Joentaa va devoir mener une enquête sans cesse parasitée par les fantômes du passé... Maître des incertitudes morales, Jan Costin Wagner nous emmène dans un voyage fascinant au coeur des pulsions interdites.

Amazon.com: 4.5 out of 5 stars  2 reviews
5.0 out of 5 stars intriguing procedural set in Finland Feb. 1 2014
By audrey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the second book in a series about police detective Kimmo Joentaa, though it's the first I've read.

The story focuses on two detectives, recent widower Joentaa and his retired colleague Ketola, who worked on the abduction-murder case of a young girl 33 years ago. Now another girl has disappeared in exactly the same spot, and Joentaa asks his old boss for help. The writing is very good and the case is interesting, though this is a warning that there are some graphic descriptions of child molestation that are not easy to read. I enjoyed reading a book set in Finland; I search out Scandinavian thrillers and have found that those from Finland are harder to find, and the culture and even language seem quite distinct from other Scandinavian countries, all of which made this book more interesting. I would describe this book as quite psychological in nature, and the writing about various characters is really good, as is the dialogue.

In order the series includes: Ice Moon, Silence, Winter of the Lions, and The Light in the Dark House (not translated as of 01/2014).

The author accomplished what he set out to do -- he poses so many conundrums, so many ethical issues -- well worth reading
