About this product
- DescriptionJames Thompson's incomparable Inspector Vaara is back in a new chilling Nordic mystery. An Estonian woman begs Inspector Kari Vaara to find her daughter, Loviise, a young woman with Down syndrome who was promised work and a better life in Finland and has since disappeared. One more missing girl is a drop in the barrel for a police department that is understaffed and overburdened, but for Kari, the case is personal: it s a chance for redemption, to help the victims his failed black-ops unit was intended to save, and to prove to his estranged wife, Kate, that he s still the man he once was. His search will lead him from the glittering world of Helsinki s high-class clubs to the darkest circles of Finland s underground trade in trafficked women and straight into the path of Loviise s captors, who may be some of the most untouchable people in the country.
