(The second book in the Helsinki homicide series)
A novel by

Tapani Larsson, a Finnish crime boss, walks out of prison with one thought on his mind: Vengeance. Wanting to reclaim his gang's honor and avenge those who have wronged him, Larsson targets Suhonen, the undercover detective who put him in prison.
Meanwhile, Suhonen's best friend, an ex-con himself, wants to wash his hands of crime, but in the process, is driven deeper into it. With the help of his boss, Lieutenant Takamaki, and the National Bureau of Investigation, Suhonen hunts for the loose thread that could unravel the entire gang. But with every string he pulls, he flirts with death itself.

Helsinki Homicide: Vengeance is yet another thrilling read from Sipila. It is the second of his books to be translated into English. The first, Helsinki Homicide: Against the Wall, won the 2009 Finnish Crime Novel of the Year Award.
