HELSINKI HOMICIDE: AGAINST THE WALL

The 2009 Winner of the Best Finnish Crime Novel:

An abandoned house in Northern Helsinki, a dead body in the garage. Detective Lieutenant Kari TakamAki's homicide team gets a case that looks like a professional hit but they are perplexed by the crime scene.

TakamAki's trusted man Suhonen goes undercover as Suikkanen, a gangster full of action. In pursuit of the murderer, he must operate within the grey area of the law. But, will the end justify the means?

Following in the footsteps of popular Scandinavian writers, Jarkko Sipila is introducing his critically acclaimed TakamAki series in the United States.

Jarkko Sipila, 45, is a Finnish author and journalist. He has been reporting Finnish crime news for MTV3 TV News and the Helsingin Sanomat newspaper for almost 20 years. He has written 11 novels and co-wrote a TV- series "Detectives Don't Sing" based on the TakamAki-books. The pilot episode drew almost a million Finnish viewers.

Helsinki Homicide: Against The Wall, the winner of the 2009 Finnish Crime Novel of the Year Award, is the first of Jarkko Sipila's nine TakamAki-novels to be translated into English. Through realistic characters and complex plots, the author discusses current topics surrounding Finnish society and unveils glimpses into his esoteric homeland.

Minnesota-based Ice Cold Crime published the paperback in the summer of 2009.

Review:

"Skillful plot construction, a narrative that sticks closely to its subject, and straight-faced humor hidden in the text make Sipila's newest a fine crime novel." - Turun Sanomat "Jarkko Sipila writes naked, unrelenting crime fiction." - Ilkka

Takamkis trusted man Suhonen goes undercover as Suikkanen, a gangster full of action. In pursuit of the murderer, he must operate within the grey area of the law. But, will the end justify the meansFollowing in the footsteps of popular Scandinavian writers, Jarkko Sipila is introducing his critically acclaimed Takamki series in the United States.

Through realistic characters and complex plots, the author discusses current topics surrounding Finnish society and unveils glimpses into his homeland. Review by Ulla Suokko for New World Finn: . . . this book is skillfully composed and intelligently written in its slow-moving tough-guy tenor. True to his genre, Mr. Sipila hooks the reader by zooming through the windows of a tight timeline and feeding the pieces of the murder puzzle bit by bit through the eyes and minds of his characters. . . Peter Ohlsson - Scandinavianbooks dot com: . . . . Against the Wall is very well plotted. It is written is a slow-moving and direct style. Pieces of the puzzle and the larger plot become visible gradually, and this serves to build the excitement towards a plausible and interesting ending. As well, the characters, while not being fully drawn, are realistic and very interesting. I enjoyed reading it, and strongly recommend it. This item ships from multiple locations.
