Helsinki Noir - darkside of Helsinki

“Readers should be prepared to keep the lights on at night after finishing this unnerving collection.” - Publishers Weekly   Helsinki Noir introduction by James Thompson: “Finland, the myths and truths. Internationally, it has a reputation as perhaps the best place in the world to live. A great economy. A low crime rate. Good and nearly cost-free health care. The needy are provided for by the state and live in reasonable comfort. Finns: peaceful and quiet people, living in the perfect example of a social democracy functioning as it should. A tourist, or even a person who has lived here for a length of time, might well view Finland as such. There is some truth to this, but like every country, Finland has many truths . . . Finland is, like the theme so often explored in Star Trek , a parallel universe in which, on the surface, all seems normal, but under that shell lie vast differences . . .  As this book demonstrates, Finland is a noir nation [and] this anthology is, I believe, the best representation of Finnish noir ever offered to the international community. Every word rings true. It holds Finland up in a way that not only exposes this wonderful and fascinating country to the world, but acts as a mirror that reflects its people and culture in a way every Finn will recognize, vocalizing those truths that are so seldom spoken here amongst ourselves.” Purchase online: Akashicbooks.com   ## ## View and comment this article at http://finnhits.blogspot.com
