Read full description of the books Tappaja, toivoakseni:I heard so many things about this author and his works and how excellent they are that my expectations were basically through the roof when I started reading this one. And boy, I don't remember the last time I've been let down so badly. Here's the thing: the premise of this book is great, the prologue has everything you need for a brilliant story. And then the plot starts going in ten different directions and eventually you're just so confused that you start wishing it ended sooner so you didn't have to go through one more chapter about drinking and alcoholism and meeting someone and waffling over things that only create completely unnecessary sub-plot. It was impossible to identify with any of the characters and I feel like their actions weren't justified in any way. The writing style is also very grating. I can deal with spoken-like language when it's indeed spoken, but reading it just feels like someone who's never heard of proofreading got published. I know there are plenty of people who like that style, but it's not for me. It's such a shame that book with a good idea and interesting and important thoughts on morals and right and wrong and good and bad ended up being such a mess.
Read information about the authorFinnish Antti Tuomainen (b. 1971) was an award-winning copywriter in the advertising industry before he made his literary debut in 2007 as a suspense author. The critically acclaimed Veljeni vartija (My Brother's Keeper) was published two years later. In 2011 Tuomainen's third novel, Parantaja (The Healer), was awarded the Clue Award for 'Best Finnish Crime Novel 2011'. Thus emerged a bright new star in the field of crime and noir. The Finnish press labeled Parantaja – the story of a writer who is desperately searching for his missing wife in a post-apocalyptic Helsinki – as "unputdownable". With a piercing and evocative style, Tuomainen is one of the first to challenge the Scandinavian crime genre formula. Antti Tuomainen lives in Helsinki and is currently working on his fourth novel.
