From the Publisher:
The Sufia Elmi case left Inspector Kari Vaara with a scarred face, insomnia, migraines, and a full body count's worth of ghosts. A year later, he and his wife have relocated to Helsinki at her urging - but it's a city where Kari has only bad memories. Working the graveyard shift with a team that resents him and a brilliant rookie partner who has a few screws loose, Kari is ordered to investigate a ninety-year-old national hero for alleged war crimes during World War II. And the interior minister demands a conculsion of innocence.
Annotation:
Months after the conclusion of his last big case, police detective Kari Vaara is still feeling repercussions. But the intrepid Icelander nevertheless takes on one, and then another, dangerous case. One involves the brutal murder of the wife of a shady Russian businessman, who Vaara suspects of organized crime connections. The second is a politically loaded war-crimes investigation of a national hero. Meanwhile, Vaara's home life continues to complicate, as author James Thompson seems to be digging in his heels to make this into a long-running, top-notch.

Praise

"Nazi collaboration, government cover-ups, kinky sex, a baby daughter waiting to be born and a vigilante-minded hero who talks back to his boss more irreverently than Dirty Harry. What more could you want?" (starred review) 01/01/2011

"[A]n impossible-to-put-down read...." (starred review) - Jessica Moyer 01/02/2011
