The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo  meets Six of Crows --this international bestseller is an edge-of-your-seat thriller that chills to the bone, and not just because of the icy winter setting.
Lumikki Andersson has made it a rule to stay out of things that do not involve her. She knows all too well that trouble comes to those who stick their nose where it doesn't belong. But Lumikki's rule is put to the test when she uncovers thousands of washed Euro notes hung to dry in her school's darkroom and three of her classmates with blood on their hands. Literally. 
A web of lies and deception now has Lumikki on the run from those determined to get the money back--no matter the cost. At the center of the chaos: Polar Bear, the mythical drug lord who has managed to remain anonymous despite his lavish parties and notorious reputation. If Lumikki hopes to make it out alive, she'll have to uncover the entire operation.
Even the cold Finnish winter can't hide a culprit determined to stain the streets red.

I was literally on edge the entire time. The pacing and suspension is perfect and you root for Lumikki so hard!! Very strong heroine and very good story.

Great story-telling style with a wonderful main character. This was a page turning, super-quick read, somewhat gritty, and a good choice for fans of Holly Black.

This book was not that good. It was barely interesting. I don't know if having it translated into English made it lose some of its interesting flavor, but I really didn't like this. I kept with it to see if it would pay off later, but it was rough.

Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy in exchange for my honest review.
