The Aosawa Murders
Behind God's Back119Skickas inom 7-10 vardagar.
Gratis frakt inom Sverige över 159 kr för privatpersoner.There are two Jewish cops in all of Helsinki. One of them, Ariel Kafka, a lieutenant in the Violent Crime Unit, identifies himself as a policeman first, then a Finn, and lastly a Jew. Kafka is a religiously non-observant 40-something bachelor who is such a stubborn, dedicated policeman that he's willing to risk his career to get an answer. Murky circumstances surround his investigation of a Jewish businessman's murder. Neo-Nazi violence, intergenerational intrigue, shady loans - predictable lines of investigation lead to unpredictable culprits. But a second killing strikes closer to home, and the Finnish Security Police come knocking. The tentacles of Israeli politics and Mossad reach surprisingly far, once again wrapping Kafka in their sticky embrace.

Recensioner i media
Praise for Nights of Awe, first in the series: "Ariel Kafka wins the award for most intriguing name for a fictional detective, and it suits this impressively labyrinthine mystery series." Time Out "An interesting plot told in an entertaining, straight-forward style by a welcome new voice.' Literary Review "Overall, it's a great Finnish crime fiction novel from Harri Nykanen, very different from the style in most Swedish crime fiction novels, for instance. Recommended!" Nordic Bookblog
Harri Nykanen, born in Helsinki in 1953, was a well-known crime journalist and is now dedicated to writing fiction. The first in the Ariel Kafka series was Nights of Awe. Nykanen's work exposes the local underworld through the eyes of the criminal, the terrorist and now from the point of view of an eccentric Helsinki police inspector.
