Matti Joensuu, To Steal Her Love (2008)

Finnish police procedural – the third in the Harjunpää series.

The only minus:

As I read so little these days, I found it a bit difficult to remember the characters. Harjunpää, Kontio and Luukkanen are not exactly household names in Denmark 🙂

The book is a fine police procedural. Strongly recommended if you want to try something different. The book is marketed as ´an important forerunner of Wallander´, but this universe was not as dark and violent as that of Henning Mankell.

Is there something like an engaging stalker? Read the book, meet Tweety, and answer the question for yourself.

Maxine very kindly sent me the book.

    That’s how I was with all the names and places when I read the “Dragon Tattoo” books.

  4. This one looks fantastic. Sorry, I haven’t been around, I’ve been sick. Glad to hear that things are going well with you. I promise to get to the latest in your book ASAP!

  5. Amanda: I hope you´ll get it. Great but very special story.
    Margot: it is not often I feel sorry for one of the perps, but…
    Kelly: well, at least English and Danish have the same origins. Finnish is another story altogether.
    Clarissa: I´m sorry you have been ill. And don´t push yourself; I am just happy that you will help me.
