Trafika Europe 2 - Polish Nocturne
Kiss of Santa (a short story)
Leena Lehtolainen, born in Vesanto in 1964, is Finland's most successful female crime author, with her titles consistently
topping the country’s best-seller lists. More than two million copies of her books have been sold worldwide, and her works have been translated into twenty-nine languages. In addition to her career as an author, Lehtolainen has worked as a literary researcher, columnist, and critic. Her best-known character is the tough, down-to-earth, and emotionally intelligent police officer Maria Kallio. To celebrate the season, we end with this taut thriller of a woman in a fat Santa suit, set on a very special department store mission. You can find this new story, and so much more, in the tingling collection, Helsinki Noir , just out by Akashic Press.
