Beginning of a new detective series – already an international hit! A fresh new voice in Scandinavian crime in the vein of Jø Nesbo, Camilla Läckberg, and Tana French!
Saana Havas is a strong female character who is a journalist in Finland solving crime cases, setting up true crime podcasts and more. Saana has been fired from her job as a click-bait journalist, so she decides to spend a summer with her aunt in a small town named Hartola. It sounds like a perfect opportunity to take it easy and recover. But when Saana begins to dig into a case of a teenage girl who died 30 years earlier, the peace of the small town is shaken.
Meanwhile in Helsinki a fire-marked body is found at Suomenlinna Sea Fortress, and crime investigator Jan Leino and his team have a new case in their hands. However, the investigation isn’t going anywhere, and Jan fears that the murder at King’s Gate is just the beginning…
Saana and Jan continue working on their own cases until their paths cross – for more than one reason.
