After recovering from surgery, he gets to work.The black-ops unit is small, and reports directly to Finlands national chief of police. They have secrecy, autonomy, and the cash to buy all the high-tech gear. Soon the unit is cleaning house, robbing Helsinkis mobsters blind of their cash, dope, and illegal firearms. But Karis team is too good, and their actions have unintended consequences. . . .Meanhile, Finland roils with hatred as its most extreme right political party gains popularity despite having no agenda besides xenophobia.
