As Black as Ebony The Snow White Trilogy (Book 3) by Salla Simukka Translated by Owen F. Witesman Published by Hot Key …
Lumikki Andersson may be innocent, but she’s no Snow White…Three and a half months have passed since she was left for dead in a snowdrift, and the scorching hot streets of Prague in summer provide a welcome contrast to that terrifying time. However, when she is approached on the street by a nervous young woman who claims to be Lumikki’s long-lost sister, the holiday quickly ends.
In the midst of the freezing Nordic winter, seventeen-year-old Lumikki Andersson walks into her school’s dark room and finds a stash of wet, crimson-colored money. Thousands of euros left to dry—splattered with someone’s blood.
“Limned in stark red, white and black, this cold, delicate snowflake of a tale sparkles with icy magic.” — Kirkus starred review
A Finnish commuter plane vanishes after taking off from Tallinn, a bank is robbed in Kerava, and riots flare in Helsinki with protesters demanding peace and brotherhood between Finland and the Soviet Union. The year is 1940, the war is on, and Agent Mujunen is in the middle of it all.
