Original title: Lukitut
Author: Salla Simukka
Genre: Young Adult (13 or 14+)
Nobody should be punished for crimes they didn’t commit. What about crimes they were going to commit in the future?
Fifty teenagers aged 16-17 are introduced to a fully automated prison with no guards or other staff. Probability calculations have shown that each of them will commit a crime at some time in their lives that will send them to prison.
This is their last chance. They must solve their future crimes, confess them in the prison’s Confession Room, and demonstrate remorse. If they do, they will be set free. If they fail to discover their crimes before they reach age eighteen, they will remain in prison to serve their full sentences.
A new YA hit by bestselling author Salla Simukka, whose previous Snow White trilogy sold to 52 countries around the world.
”Simukka writes the strory with confidence and is psychologically attentive. Once again her novel earns a place as the best of Finnish YA literature.” – Helsingin Sanomat newspaper
