>James Thompson – Snow Angels


>Has it ever happen to you before that you have been chosen by a book in stead of the other way around?
It has happened to me in some rare occasions.
Recently I’ve been chosen by Snow Angels.
During the last months every time I’ve search the Internet there was a review of Snow Angels and therefore I’ve been chosen by this book and the book itself has found its way into my TBR list.

Snow Angels by James Thompson.

Although Finland has a population of only five and a half million, its rate of violent crime rivals that of most American cities. Perhaps it’s the long, dark, frigid days that spawn depression, suicide, and murder.

Now the police inspector in a small town in rural Finland, faced with the murder of a black actress, is determined to solve the crime without big city help, and to keep the potentially explosive case out of the national news.

Through the eyes of Inspector Kari Vaara and his American-born wife, who is struggling to come to terms with her new home, James Thompson explores the culture and psyche of a people living at the edge of the Arctic Circle.

James Thompson is an American who has lived in Finland for many years. SNOW ANGELS was published first by Finland’s WSOY.

  2. >Carmina gracias por tu esfuerzo, me hizo gracia la coincidencia con tu comentario en el blog aunque parto de un presupuesto un poco diferente, algo así como que hay libros que tienen vida propia y se te aparecen constantemente. Luego no tienes casi más remedio que leerlos vista la insistencia del libro.
