Dark as My Heart, Paperback


The latest thriller from the 'King of Helsinki Noir' and award-winning author of The Healer, Antti Tuomainen.

Aleksi lost his mother on a rainy October day when he was thirteen years old.

Twenty years later, he is certain that he knows who's responsible.

Everything points to millionaire Henrik Saarinen. The police don't agree. He has only one option: to get close to Saarinen and find out the truth about his mother's fate on his own.

But as Aleksi soon discovers, delving into Saarinen and his alluring daughter's family secrets is a confusing and dangerous enterprise.

Dark As My Heart tells the story of a mother and son and the search for justice.

It's a story about the cost of obsessions, the price of vengeance and the power of love.

A crime novel written by an acclaimed poet, Dark As My Heart is both a Hitchcockian mystery tale and a modern Greek tragedy.
