How much should you have to sacrifice?

A young cocaine dealer is gunned down at the door of his apartment on the outskirts of downtown Helsinki. Detective Lieutenant Kari Takamaki and his homicide team find the trigger man - but who was working behind the scenes?

A woman from a neighboring building comes forward with an image of the getaway driver's face burned into her memory. After testifying in the trial, she finds herself the target of an escalating spiral of threats. Not wishing to uproot her life, she and her twelve-year-old daughter risk death by spurning the police's offer of a safe house. As the threats mount, the witness is torn between her principles and her desire to keep her family safe. How much should an ordinary citizen sacrifice for the benefit of society as a whole?

Helsinki Homicide: Nothing but the Truth is yet another thrilling read from Sipila. A prequel to previously published Against the Wall and Vengeance, this is the third of his books to be translated into English. Against the Wall won Finland's 2009 Crime Novel of the Year Award.

Jarkko Sipila is a Finnish author and journalist. He has reported on Finnish crime for more than 20 years, has written 13 books, and co-wrote a TV-series based on the Takamaki books. Through realistic characters and story lines, he explores current topics surrounding life in contemporary Finland.
