Financial Times praises Salla Simukka’s As Red as Blood!

Simukka newsletter Aug202014Rave U.S and UK reviews keep coming in for Salla Simukka’s As Red as Blood (Punainen kuin veri, Tammi 2013), Book 1 in the Snow White Trilogy. Most recently the book was featured in the Financial Times! Read the full review here.

”Lumikki is fit, resourceful and a mistress of disguise, able to transform her appearance at a moment’s notice…With its sex, drugs and violence, the world Lumikki infiltrates is amoral and cynical; a sophisticated tale, then, suavely translated by Owen F. Witesman.”
Financial Times, August 15th

The book has previously received starred reviews from Publishers Weekly, Kirkus Reviews and Booklist.

Next week, on August 28th, Simukka will visit Politics and Prose bookstore in Washington, D.C with Memory of Water author Emmi Itäranta. See here for information.

A Dream of Books, a blog by a UK librarian, has also praised As Red as Blood:

”Every chapter is brilliantly written, combining intrigue, deceit, danger and fear. An enticing blend of crime thriller and mystery, this was a fantastic read…I was swept away by the fantastic plot and the kick-ass heroine and I can’t wait to read more by this very talented author.”
A Dream of Books literature blog, the UK

Salla Simukka (b. 1981) is the winner of the 2013 Topelius Prize for the best Finnish youth novel for Without a Trace (Jäljellä, Tammi 2012) and Elsewhere (Toisaalla, Tammi 2012), as well as the 2013 Finland Prize. The Snow White Trilogy comprises As Red as Blood (Punainen kuin veri, Tammi 2013), As White as Snow (Valkea kuin lumi, Tammi 2013) and As Black as Ebony (Musta kuin eebenpuu, Tammi 2014).
