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.
