Anna's work as a criminal investigator barely gets off the ground before she is thrust into a case that has riveted the nation. A young woman has been killed on a running trail, and a pendant depicting an Aztec god has been found in her possession. Another murder soon follows. All signs point to a serial killer. But can Anna catch the Hummingbird before he - or she - strikes again?

Press Reviews

'Exceptionally well written and deftly crafted with a profusion of unexpected twists and turns.'

'Heikkapelto's brooding debut, a large-scale police procedural set in a small Finnish town. . . Promises tough and powerful crime fiction to come.'

'A beautifully written and many-layered mystery novel that illuminates the dangers of prejudice, while still providing a major thrill ride.'
