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.

Author bio: Salla Simukka (b. 1981) is a translator and author of juvenile fiction. In January 2013 she was awarded with the Topelius Prize for her novels Without a Trace (Jäljellä, Tammi Spring 2012) and Elsewhere (Toisaalla, Tammi Fall 2012), in recognition of the best Finnish youth novel.
