_____________


When Elina makes her annual summer pilgrimage to the remote family farm in Lapland, she has three days to catch the pike in a local pond, or she and the love of her life will both die.


This year her task is made even more difficult by a host of deadly supernatural creatures and the homicide detective on her trail.


Can Elina catch the pike and lay to rest the curse that has been hanging over her head ever since a youthful love affair turned sour?


Can Sergeant Janatuinen make it back to civilization in one piece?


And just why is Lapland in summer so weird?

Anmeldelser

«Immediately enticing, endlessly charming, full of wit, magic and deep, moving humanity. It transported me to a world both familiar and utterly unknown, keeping me enthralled on every page»

Claire North, author of The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August

«Full of natural wonders [and a] wonderfully zany energy»

Independent

«Wonderful weirdness... Manages to make both Lapland and its inhabitants seem both unutterably enchanting and utterly bonkers»

Financial Times

«Spiced with multiple storylines and all kinds of mythical creatures, this rich novel is a delight»

Helsingin Sanomat

«I feel like giving him 6 stars out of 5 - and this is exactly what I will do. Juhani Karila stretches the limits and borders of the world so wildly, that it seems only right for this literature critic to do the same»

Lapin Kansa

«A fix of love story and thriller, realism and fantasy, folk comedy and all sorts of popular beliefs sufficient to cure the worst case of humourlessness»

Raijan kirjareppu

«Karila's imagination is beyond words! The story is wild, absurd and crazy funny, written in a brilliant language and charged with a great sense of humour»

Kirja vieköön
