Laura

What happened to Laura Anderson?

In the first part of the Palokaski Trilogy, Miia Pohjavirta, a former internet cop, begins a new career as a counselor at her former high school. Nikke is her younger brother, a broad-minded school psychologist. Laura Anderson, a high school student and Nikke’s client, has gone missing as the school year begins. When Laura’s parents start a Facebook page to try and find their daughter, they open up a Pandora’s box.

Laura is an intelligent and unabashedly entertaining book. A reader feels a fondness for its characters like one does for friends or family members – loveable and infuriating, impossible to put aside. You simply have to read one more chapter

Noora

The second part in the Palokaski Trilogy focuses on Noora, a desperately lonely girl with no friends. Once having desperately sought Laura’s friendship, Noora has followed the case and is prepared to do almost anything, including creating a second identity, to get even a fraction of the attention Laura received. Miia Pohjavirta is trying to move on, but is plagued by new suspicions as the people closest to her begin displaying strange behaviours and old traumas are brought to the surface.

Noora soon comes up with an elaborate and dangerous plan, and both Miia and Noora find out that the evil Laura encountered is closer than they could ever have imagined.
