Overview

Following from The Defenceless, can Anna solve a terrifying case that's become personal?

Anna Fekete returns to the Balkan village of her birth for a relaxing summer holiday. But when her purse is stolen and the thief is found dead on the banks of the river, Anna is pulled into a murder case. Her investigation leads straight to her own family, to closely guarded secrets concealing a horrendous travesty of justice that threatens them all. As layer after layer of corruption, deceit and guilt are revealed, Anna is caught up in the refugee crisis spreading like wildfire across Europe. How long will it take before everything explodes? Chilling, taut and relevant, The Exiled is an electrifying thriller from one of Finland's most celebrated crime writers.

Reviews

"Without a shadow of a doubt Kati Hiekkapelto has taken a firm place in the Nordic Noir sphere, creating tense, vivid and compelling stories, with strong characterisation . . . and a very contemporary social commentary. The novel, in perfect translation by David Hackston, is so beautifully multifaceted that I'm already rereading it." —Crime Review on The Defenceless

"intriguing."  —Publishers Weekly

"[A]uthor Kati Hiekkapelto . . . has quickly elbowed her way into must-read status for fans of elegantly written, socially conscious mystery writing." —Mystery Scene
