It's two days before Christmas and Helsinki is battling ruthless climate catastrophe: subway tunnels are flooded; the streets are full of abandoned vehicles; the social order is crumbling and private security firms have undermined the police force. Tapani Lehtinen, a struggling poet, is among the few still willing to live in the city.

When Tapani's journalist wife Johanna goes missing, he embarks on a frantic hunt for her. Johanna's disappearance seems to be connected to a story she was researching about a serial killer known as 'The Healer'. Determined to find Johanna, Tapani's search leads him to uncover secrets from her past: secrets that connect her to the very murders she was investigating...

Tuomainen's book is set in the near future, but nothing here is less than frighteningly plausible" Independent "In this Finnish blend of thriller and dystopia, Tuomainen adds a new, an almost Ballardian flavour of SF apocalypse to the much-loved recipes of Nordic noir" i
