The Priest of Evil

by Matti Joensuu

What is it with Scandinavians and detective stories? If you enjoy murder, mayhem, psychotic killers, innocent victims, not so innocent victims, heroic policemen, corrupt policemen, then this is the book for you. And there are not many books set in Finland, which does give it an unusual flavour.


There was another knock at the door. This time it sounded as if someone had kicked it, someone in a hurry. Piiponen appeared in the doorway, quick and nimble as the finest acrobat. In one hand he was carrying a bulging paper bag, while in the other he had managed to pick up three paper cups of coffee without spilling a drop.
