Reviews : Her Enemy by Leena Lehtolainen
“A strong lead character—obstinate, fearless, smart Maria Kallio—makes up for the rocky plot of Lehtolainen’s second mystery featuring the former cop and novice lawyer (after 2012’s My First Murder). Kallio, who practices near Helsinki, gets deeply involved in the murder of Armi Mäenpää, a recent acquaintance strangled outside her own home.“

“This book is awesome and intense it has action and adventure but also has some mystery in it and kind of keeps you thinking like what’s going to happen next. If you’re the kind of person who loves mystery or action adventure then get this book it is incredible. You might become addicted! (…) Has a flowing writing style, interweaving the different characters and subplots, to a suspenseful finale. Would recommend.”

“There’s a lot going on, making this a fast, absorbing crime novel. I’m hoping the rest of this series is translated into English soon! Owen Whitesman has done an excellent job with the translation, making the book easily readable by an American audience.“

“I read this book in 2 days and very much enjoyed it. I found the pace tight and the character development nicely textured for a mystery novel. I would definitely seek out this author and buy her works once translated into English. I can usually figure out an ending of a mystery and I was surprised.”
