One ordinary summer's day, a young girl disappears while cycling to volleyball practice. Her abandoned bike is found in exactly the same place that another girl was assaulted and murdered thirty-three years previously. The perpetrator was never brought to justice, so the authorities suspect the same killer has struck again. The eeriness of the crime unsettles not only the police and public, but also someone who has been carrying a burden of guilt for many years. Detective Kimmo Joentaa calls upon the help of his older colleague Ketola, who worked on the original murder, in the hope that they can solve both cases. While they are following up leads, the ripples from the impact of the new disappearance spread and Kimmo discovers that the truth is not always what you expect.

This was the second book by Jan Costin Wagner that featured Detective Kimmo Joentaa and I was a bit disappointed as it didn't seem to have the same thrill that his first book, Ice Moon, had. He wasn't as featured throughout as he was in first book, but still a good read. I'm looking forward to reading his next two books still featuring Detective Kimmo Joentaa.

A very good book, even if it is quite somber and dark. Easy going read. The unraveling is surprising and the last few pages tend to suggest a sequel? But I don't thing there will be any. The murder will have remained unsolved. What tickles me is why did Timo felt guilty while the wrong doer, Parssinen, had no remorse at all and continuend to mow the lawn in a very serene way.

Finnish cop Kimmo investigates missing girl case which is just like a case 33 years ago that was unsolved. Turns out that the cop who never solved original case set the newer case in motion.
