Inspector Kari Vaara has left the Arctic Circle and returned--reluctantly--to Helsinki, where he has two cases on his plate: the brutal murder of a Russian businessman's wife, and--more secretively--an investigation into an elderly Finnish national hero who may have played a darker role in World War II than the public knows.
