The Jessica Niemi series

THE WITCH HUNTER, THE ICE COVEN, THE LAST GRUDGE and GHOST ISLAND
Max Seeck

New York Times Bestseller!
Winner of the Glass Key award! 

In The Witch Hunter, book 1 of the Jessica Niemi series, Helsinki Police Detective Jessica Niemi hunts an occultist serial killer. In The Ice Coven, Jessica and her team follow clues hidden on Instagram to solve the disappearance of a young influencer and a manga artist. In The Last Grudge, a prominent business executive Eliel Zetterborg is found brutally murdered in his home in Helsinki. In Ghost Island, Jessica Niemi is ordered on paid leave after an altercation, and she decides to travel to a small island in the Aland archipelago to escape the attention and find some peace.

“THE WITCH HUNTER, translated with icy precision by Kristian London, is written in short, sharp, present tense chapters, a technique which adds to its relentless tension. Flashbacks to earlier episodes in Jessica’s life suggest that the strangeness currently unfolding is tied to her personal history. Discovering the how and why of it brings a resolution as bleak as anything Poe might have conjured.”
– The Wall Street Journal

“An intricate, beautifully written, character-driven page-turner with some shocking twists.”
– Kirkus Reviews
