Class/genre: Crime & Thriller
Maria Kallio has left the Helsinki crime squad to work for a law office in Espoo, headquarters of the cell phone giant Nokia. Police work isn’t her job now, but when a new acquaintance, Armi Mäenpää, is found strangled in her home and the case is labeled a sex crime, Maria can’t keep her hands off. The unofficial inquiries of our willful redhead push her old enemy, Inspector Pertti Ström, to the verge of apoplexy. Maria will stop at nothing to push behind the curtains of Espoo high society—and almost loses everything in the process.
