Review: As Red as Blood

As Red as Blood As Red as Blood by Salla Simukka
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I love all Scandinavian authors and Nordic Noir is one of my favorite genres.

The first in the Lumikki Andersson trilogy, "As Red as Blood" introduces us to Lumikki (Snow White), a young girl who has been through a bad time at school at home. She now lives alone in the city of Tampere, where she studies.

We know something bad happened to her at home, but we'll have to wait until the end of the book to find out what it is.

When she finds thousand of euro banknotes hanging to dry in the school's photo lab, her curiosity plunges her into a series of violent events complete with Russian mobsters and corrupt cops.

This is a well written and translated book, but although I love YA books, it felt a bit too light for me.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
