The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets Six of Crows in this international bestseller, an edge-of-your-seat thriller that chills to the bone—and not just because of the icy winter setting.

Lumikki Andersson has made it a rule to stay out of things that do not involve her. She knows all too well that trouble comes to those who stick their nose where it doesn’t belong. But Lumikki’s rule is put to the test when she uncovers thousands of washed Euro notes hung to dry in her school’s darkroom and three of her classmates with blood on their hands. Literally.

A web of lies and deception now has Lumikki on the run from those determined to get the money back, no matter the cost. At the center of the chaos is Polar Bear, the mythical drug lord who has managed to remain anonymous despite his lavish parties and notorious reputation. If Lumikki hopes to make it out alive, she will have to uncover the entire operation.

Even the cold Finnish winter can’t hide a culprit determined to stain the streets red.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ann Marie Lee narrates the opening book of this Snow White trilogy…Lee’s reading is as active and dramatic as the quick-paced story. She is facile at shifting between viewpoints and accents, dialogue, and narrative.”


  • “This cold, delicate snowflake of a tale sparkles with icy magic.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Readers should be prepared for stark imagery (red blood seeping into fresh snow) and some mature themes in this suspenseful page-turner.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “Simukka creates a tough, self-sufficient heroine in seventeen-year-old Lumikki Andersson.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “A compelling start, a strong female character, the rich background setting of Finland, and a hint of a Snow White retelling.”

    School Library Journal

  • “The Arctic setting of this import is used to full advantage, evoking a chilling mood and strewing genuine frigid weather obstacles in Lumikki’s way.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

  • “A teen read-alike for the popular and gritty Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series by Stieg Larsson..Written for older teens and adults, the book delves into drugs and sex and uses language associated with the criminal underworld.”
