Summary
Earth is losing its battle against climate change and people around the world are flocking north to Finland where the temperatures are still tolerable. Tapani Lehtinen is a failed poet still living in the increasingly dangerous city of Helsinki. When his wife, newspaper journalist Johanna, goes missing, her disappearance seems linked to her ongoing story about a serial killer called “The Healer.” Desperate to find Johanna, Tapani’s search begins to uncover secrets from her past--secrets connecting her to the very suspect she was investigating.
Critique
This slim novel is an eerie read. Hard to put down, this mix of crime fiction and dystopian fiction stays with the reader long after it's been read.
