Lumikki Andersson, the main character in The Snow White Trilogy, is a 17-year-old girl who has learned to defend herself and to trust no one. She is a lonely wolf and a lonesome survivor. Like Lisbeth Salander for the YA!
Book 1 As Red as Blood (Punainen kuin veri; Tammi February 2013):
The Trilogy kicks off as Lumikki stumbles upon a money laundering operation in her school’s darkroom and is swept into a whirlpool of unpredictable events.
Book 2 As White as Snow (Valkea kuin lumi; Tammi August 2013):
Lumikki goes backpacking and joins a religious cult in Prague. When it turns out that the cult leaders are planning a mass suicide, Lumikki has to run for her life.
Book 3 As Black as Ebony (Musta kuin eebenpuu; Tammi February 2014):
Lumikki has to find a way to outwit her stalker before her premiere in the modern-day version of Snow White.
