The Call of Hades

Hades Calling is the ‘Daniel Kuisma’ trilogy’s final installment that begins with four executed men found in a Zagreb apartment. The place is owned by the U.K. government, but no one seems to know anything about the case. When Daniel Kuisma receives an unexpected guest from Southern Europe he hears something that makes him board the next plane to Zagreb: the lives of thousands of people might be at risk. Meanwhile Annika Lehto is recovering from an assault, but offers him all the help she can from her sickbed.

The Mephisto Touch

The hotly-anticipated second novel by Finland’s bestselling, ‘Debut Thriller of the Year Award’ 2017 winning author, Max Seeck.

Missing-presumed-dead Finnish diplomat, Jare Westerlund has fled from Croatia on a forged passport, leaving behind a decapitated body and his trail goes cold at Stockholm airport.

When Interpol officer Annika Lehto hears of his escape, she abandons her sick leave to go off in pursuit of Westerlund, with the aid of special forces specialist Daniel Kuisma. What follows is a dramatic chain of events, from northern Norway, to San Francisco, to The Hague, as the pair continue the chase.  The further their investigations go, the clearer it becomes that the man they are after has not merely gone astray; his true nature is far worse than anyone had imagined . . .

A gripping, international game of cat and mouse that began in The Angels of Hammurabi, which reads both as a standalone or sequel to the first installment.

The Angels of Hammurabi

Jo Nesbø meets Apocalypse Now in the Balkans: An action-packed page-turner about revenge, war, international crime – and love

Jare Westerlund, an employee of the Finnish Embassy in Zagreb goes missing. The local police has no leads, except for the anonymous threats Westerlund has received before his disappearance. Daniel Kuisma from the Finnish Defence Forces is sent to investigate, along with Annika Lehto from the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.

The investigation gets unexpectedly complicated when the mysteries of the past start to unravel on the stony shores of the Adriatic Sea.

Kuisma knows Croatia like the back of his hand from his days as a peacekeeper during the Yugoslav Wars, and it seems he has been waging a war of his own ever since. What really happened twenty years ago?

In the same war fought the Italian Antonio Franzo, who dodges a murder attempt in Dubrovnik. Soon he finds out that also the other men who took part in a secret operation during the war are in danger, amongst them one Finn.

The ministry has insisted on sending Lehto, a relatively inexperienced young official, on the mission. Is there more than meets the eye in the woman who stops the show with her beauty?

It all seems to boil down to a group called The Angels of Hammurabi. Who are they – and who is killing them off, one by one?
