Reviews of The Rabbit Factor:

Readers might think they know what to expect from Nordic noir: a tortured detective, a bleak setting, a brutal crime that shakes a small community. Finnish crime novelist Tuomainen turns all of this on its head … The ear of a giant plastic rabbit becomes a key weapon. It only gets darker and funnierThe GuardianFull of refreshing wit and wisdom … a treatPublishers Weekly STARRED REVIEWA dark and delightful novel with an intelligent, brave, and persnickety heroForeword ReviewsTuomainen is the funniest writer in EuropeThe Times of London

You don’t expect to laugh when you’re reading about terrible crimes, but that’s what you’ll do when you pick up one of Tuomainen’s decidedly quirky thrillersThe New York Times
