Another good Scandi-noir that is engaging and interesting

The Exiled - Kati Hiekkapelto,  David Hackston (Translator)

 

 

A Finnish thriller, this deals with a police officer going to the Serbian-Hungarian border to see her family and have a holiday. There her handbag is stolen and this leads to a murder case which she cannot resist investigating

 

This is a story of characters as well as hard-boiled detective work and it works well. It's an easy read and drags the reader in to the plot quickly and efficiently

 

The book is engaging and well worth a read, only bleak regarding the weather and the cold.

 

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
