Anna Fekete, who fled the Yugoslavian wars as a child, starts working as a criminal investigator in a northern Finnish coastal town, with her new partner, Esko, who doesn't bother hiding his racist prejudices. Anna's work as a criminal investigator barely gets off the ground before she is thrust into a high-profile, seemingly unsolvable case that has riveted the nation. A young woman has been killed on a running trail, and a pendant depicting an Aztec god has been found in her possession. Another murder soon follows. All signs point to a serial killer, but can Anna catch the Hummingbird before he - or she - strikes again? Kati Hiekkapelto is a special needs teacher by training. She lives on an old farm on the island of Hailuoto in Northern Finland. This is her first novel. Translated from the Finnish by David Hackston. "Heikkapelto's brooding debut, a large-scale police procedural set in a small Finnish town. . . Promises tough and powerful crime fiction to come."--Publishers Weekly "A beautifully written and many-layered mystery novel that illuminates the dangers of prejudice, while still providing a major thrill ride."--Mystery Scene Magazine "Exceptionally well written and deftly crafted with a profusion of unexpected twists and turns."--The Midwest Book Review
