'Matti Joensuu is a serial novelist and a criminal investigator for Helsinki PD. Priest of Evil centres on a fantastical priest who brainwashes teenagers into carrying bomb-filled backpacks. Joensuu, who believes the police officer's 'ringside seat' on society can lend prescience, says "the priest believes there is only one way to think. So do suicide bombers and superpowers' - MAYA JAGGI, Guardian'In Priest of Evil by the Finnish CID man Matti Joensuu the hero is a police sergeant against a religious fundamentalist brainwashing teenagers into carrying bombs on the Helsinki metro' - The Times'After a bizarre succession of deaths at Helsinki tube stations, there are few clues: CCTV reveals nothing. Detective Sergeant Timo Harjunpaa of the Helsinki Violent Crimes Unit begins to realise that his opponent is a very dangerous creature indeed. The undercurrents that the author is able to touch upon here render this a truly disturbing experience' - Crime Time'Joensuu plays on our suspicions of moral righteousness and religious fanaticism, along with current apprehensions regarding Tube travellers bearing backpacks. Plays along nicely'- Amanda Hopkinson, Independent
