Antti Tuomainen

Dark As My Heart
  • Dark As My Heart

  • From Finland's top crime-writer, the prize-winning author of The Healer

    Aleksi lost his mother on a rainy October day when he was 13 years old. 20 years later, he is certain that he knows who's responsible. Everything points to millionaire Henrik Saarinen. The police don't agree. Aleksi has only one option: to get close to Henrik Saarinen and find out the truth about his mother's fate on his own. But as Aleksi soon discovers, delving into Saarinen and his beautiful daughter’s family secrets is a confusing and dangerous enterprise.

    Dark As My Heart tells the story of a mother and son and the search for justice. It's a story about the cost of obsessions, the price of vengeance and the power of love. Set against a vividly conjured bleak and beautiful Finnish landscape, Dark As My Heart is both a Hitchcockian mystery tale and a modern Greek tragedy.

Antti Tuomainen was born in Finland in 1971 and lives in Helsinki. His novel The Healer was awarded the Clue Award for Best Finnish Crime Novel. Bestselling author Sofi Oksanen has said of Tuomainen’s work: ‘The ability to use all the tricks of crime fiction and all the tools of poetry makes Tuomainen's work unique.'
