The fourth entry in the Ariel Kafka series.
In the neighbourhood of Töölö in Helsinki, a dead female is discovered with religious texts written onto her body. This is not a murder victim, however, but a body stolen from the morgue. Soon after its discovery, the body is stolen once more and ceremoniously burned in Helsinki’s Central Park.
Ariel Kafka’s investigation leads him to the enigmatic Brotherhood of the Holy Vault and one of its members Reijo Laurén, who is also suspected of stealing the body. Before Kafka begins to put together the mystery piece by piece, many people have to pay for their past sins with their lives
