5.0 out of 5 stars Kimmo Joentaa - somber and haunting April 4 2015
By L. .G. avid reader - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Another Kimmo Joentaa detective mystery. Kimmo is a loner and depressed after the death of his wife 2 years previously. He is a man of few words, very introspective and insightful. The atmosphere of his books is a quiet, sadness with a curious desire to understand - to put the pieces together
In this story his boss Ketola has retired - but a crime occur which involves a crime that occurred back in his (Ketola's) early days - 33 years ago. A young girl was killed and the perpetrator was never found. Now, at the time of this story, another young girl has disappeared - and her bicycle is found in the same place as the bicycle was found in the case 33 years ago.
We get to see the unraveling from the perspectives of Kimmo, Ketola, and the person who was there 33 years ago
5.0 out of 5 stars intriguing procedural set in Finland Feb. 1 2014
By audrey frances - Published on
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 Light in a Dark House.

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