"A young cocaine dealer is gunned down at the door of his apartment on the outskirts of downtown Helsinki.

A woman from a neighboring building comes forward with an image of the getaway driver's face burned into her memory. After testifying in the trial, she finds herself the target of an escalating spiral of threats. Not wishing to uproot her life, she and her twelve-year-old daughter risk death by spurning the police's offer of a safe house. As the threats mount, the witness is torn between her principles and her desire to keep her family safe.

Raid and the kid by Harri Nykänen( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hard-nosed hit man Raid is lying low at his farmhouse in northern Finland when the son of a local shopkeeper stumbles onto his property with bloodthirsty Bolivian drug traffickers on his heels. Raid comes to the boy's aid, and arouses the ire of the Bolivian cartel. Further south, Detective Lieutenant Jansson and his colleagues find the bodies of a Bolivian warehouse worker and a Finnish flight attendant in a Helsinki home, along with a closet brimming with stolen goods. In this twisting tale of cops, criminals, and those who blur the lines, Jansson and his team struggle to connect the dots behind the case. Were the killings the work of a jealous lover, the result of a theft racket gone awry, or something else entirely? And how might a shady PI and a decades-old prostitution case be linked to the murders?"--Page 4 of cover
