Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The excitement around Scandinavian crime fiction coming in the wake of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo has focused largely on Sweden, but Finland—as poignantly revealed here—is equally strong in the noir department.

Featuring brand-new stories by Leena Lehtolainen, Johanna Holmström, James Thompson, Antti Tuomainen, Jesse Itkonen, Joel Kuntonen, Jukka Petäjä, Tapani Bagge, Pekka Hiltunen, Teemu Käskinen, Tuomas Lius, Riikka Ala-Harja, and Jarkko Sipilä.

James Thompson has lived in Finland for over fifteen years and is one of the most popular representatives of Nordic noir, with his work being published in a dozen countries. His novel Snow Angels was one of Booklist's Best Crime Novel Debuts of the Year and was nominated for Edgar, Anthony, and a Strand Critics awards. G.P. Putnam's Sons will release Helsinki Dead, the fifth installment in the series, in 2014.

Synopsis:

Helsinki Noir joins Copenhagen Noir in representing the Akashic Noir Series in the far north of Europe.

Synopsis:

Launched with the summer '04 award-winning best seller Brooklyn Noir, Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies. Each book is comprised of all-new stories, each one set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book.
