Flora Hansen calls herself a medium and makes a living by pretending to commune with the dead. But after a gruesome murder at a rural home for wayward girls, Hansen begins to suffer visions that are all too real. She calls the police, claiming to have seen a ghost, but only one detective puts aside his skepticism long enough to listen: Joona Linna.

Linna has spent more time at the scene of the crime than any other detective would. The case seems obvious on the face of it: One of the girls at the home escaped in the middle of the night, leaving behind a bloody bed with a hammer under the pillow. But why does Hansen insist that the murder instrument was a stone, not a hammer? And what’s the story behind the dark red grain of sand, almost like a splinter from a ruby, stuck beneath the dead girl’s fingernail? As Linna refuses to accept easy answers, his search leads him into darker, more violent territory, and finally to a shocking confrontation with a figure from his past.

Quotes & Awards

  • “False leads, administrative difficulties, and hints of a case involving Linna’s own family keep the pages flying by. ”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “It’s the kind of jet-propelled read that leads to making squirrelly excuses to get back to your earbuds…Mark Bramhall gives a faultless, taut, and sympathetic performance, and that coupled with complex but controlled and fast-paced plotting and a silky-smooth translation makes this a completely absorbing production. Bramhall’s timbre is attractively roughened, and his range of character voices is truly impressive.”


  • “Superb, spooky whodunit…A rich, nuanced tale, ideal for beach reading, just as long as the beach doesn’t harbor too many shadows.”
