Inhalt

<div>When an old man is found dead on the road seemingly run over by a Hungarian au pair police investigator Anna Fekete is certain that there is more to the incident than meets the eye. As she begins to unravel an increasingly complex case, sheâEuros led on a deadly trail where illegal immigration, drugs and, ultimately, murder threaten not only her beliefs, but her life. AnnaâEuros partner Esko is entrenched in a separate but equally dangerous investigation into the activities of an immigrant gang, where deportation orders and raids cause increasing tension and result in desperate measures by gang members and the police themselves. Then a bloody knife is found in the snow, and the two cases come together in ways that no one could have predicted. As pressure mounts, it becomes clear that having the law on their side may not be enough for Anna and Esko. Chilling, disturbing and terrifyingly believable, The Defenceless is an extraordinary, vivid and gripping thriller by one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction. WINNER: Best Finnish Crime Novel 2014 ItâEuros like reading Henning Mankell, when Senior Constable Anna Fekete works on several tricky cases in the icy-cold winter of Northern Finland while contemplating the harshness of lifeâEuro Helsingin Sanomat As the plot keeps deepening, Hiekkapelto turns out to be incredibly skilful at carrying off a complicated story the suspense feels real and the writing flows nicelyâEuro Savon Sanomat Hiekkapelto really treats her readers like royalty. The plot with all its twists, its humorous yet wise narration guarantees a perfect reading experience. IâEurom sorry for the superlatives, but I believe The Defenceless is the Book of the Year for meâEuro Literary Blog Rakkaudesta Kirjoihin</div>
