Inspector Kari Vaara returns, more haunted than ever, in the follow- up to Snow Angels, “a must for fans of the international crime novel.” (Booklist) ,The Sufia Elmi case left Kari Vaara with a scarred face, chronic insomnia, a constant migraine, and a full body count’s worth of ghosts. Now it’s a year later, in Helsinki, and Kari is working the graveyard shift in the homicide unit, terrified that his heavily pregnant wife will miscarry again after she lost the twins just after Christmas. ,Kari is pushed into investigating a ninety-year-old national hero for war crimes committed during World War II. The Interior Minister demands a conclusion of innocence, preserving Finland’s heroic perception about itself and its role in the war, but Germany wants extradition. ,In a seeming coincidence, Kari is drawn into the murder-by-torture case of Iisa Filippov, the philandering wife of a Russian businessman. Her lover is clearly being framed for the crime-and Ivan Filippov’s arrogance and nonchalance point the finger at him. But he’s being protected from above, leading Kari to the corrupt corridors of power. Soon the past and present collide in ways no one could have anticipated.

Mancano pochi giorni a Natale e nello squallido seminterrato di un grande albergo di Reykjavik viene ritrovato il cadavere di un uomo vestito da Babbo Natale e con i pantaloni abbassati. Si tratta del portiere dell’albergo, che sotto le feste si travestiva per divertire i piccoli ospiti. Nella sua misera stanzetta vengono rinvenuti alcuni vecchi dischi in vinile e un poster di Shirley Temple. L’indagine si rivela molto difficile fin da subito per l’agente Erlendur, costretto a confrontarsi con la serie di grotteschi personaggi che popolano l’albergo, e con il marcio nascosto dietro la facciata di irreprensibilità ed eleganza. Ma la rivelazione più scioccante sarà il passato della vittima, un ex bambino prodigio, solista nel coro delle voci bianche di Hafnarfjòrdur, che aveva anche inciso due quarantacinque giri a tiratura limitata, diventati ora una rarità di inestimabile valore per i collezionisti.

On the floor of a church in northern Sweden, the body of a man lies mutilated and defiled–and in the night sky, the aurora borealis dances as the snow begins to fall….So begins Åsa Larsson’s spellbinding thriller, winner of Sweden’s Best First Crime Novel Award and an international literary sensation.,Rebecka Martinsson is heading home to Kiruna, the town she’d left in disgrace years before. A Stockholm attorney, Rebecka has a good reason to return: her friend Sanna, whose brother has been horrifically murdered in the revivalist church his charisma helped create. Beautiful and fragile, Sanna needs someone like Rebecka to remove the shadow of guilt that is engulfing her, to forestall an ambitious prosecutor and a dogged policewoman. But to help her friend, and to find the real killer of a man she once adored and is now not sure she ever knew, Rebecka must relive the darkness she left behind in Kiruna, delve into a sordid conspiracy of deceit, and confront a killer whose motives are dark, wrenching, and impossible to guess….,,From the Hardcover edition.
