ALL THE KINGS MEN

I started to write my first crime novel 2012 when I heard an interesting story. I got a pair of old pearl earrings from my mother in law as a birthday gift and asked their origin. These are from my god father, my mother in law told. When I asked more about this god father I instantly new that I had found something worth investigating.

 

He lived in a mansion in Hartola, a small town that calls itself a Kingdom. In the end of 70´s he was invited to a dinner party but he never came. He was found dead in his mansion. The case is still unsolved. I visited Hartola and interviewed people who could remember something. Soon I fell in love with the Hartola atmosphere. Koskipää mansion with its darks waters. Silent Hartola that calls itself a Kingdom. In the end, cause I couldn´t solve the old case, I created a fiction story.

The Plot:

Saana has been fired from her job as a click-bait journalist, so she decides to spend a summer with her aunt in a small-town Hartola. It sounds like a perfect opportunity to take it easy and recover. But when Saana begins to dig into a case of a teenage girl who died 30 years earlier, the peace of the small town is shaken.

Meanwhile in Helsinki a fire-marked body is found at Suomenlinna Sea Fortress, and crime investigator Jan Leino and his team have a new case in their hands. However, the investigation isn’t going anywhere, and Jan fears that the murder at King’s Gate a is just the beginning…

Saana and Jan continue working on their own cases until their paths cross – for more than one reason.
