Palm Beach, Finland

Fargo meets Baywatch in a mesmerisingly dark, poignant comedy-thriller by the King of Helsinki Noir

`A roller-coaster read and extraordinarily poignant' Guardian

`Tuomainen is the funniest writer in Europe' Marcel Berlins, The Times

Sex, lies and ill-fitting swimwear ... Sun Protection Factor 100

Jan Nyman, the ace detective of the covert operations unit of the National Central Police, is sent to a sleepy seaside town to investigate a mysterious death. Nyman arrives in the town dominated by a bizarre holiday village - the `hottest beach in Finland'. The suspect: Olivia Koski, who has only recently returned to her old hometown. The mission: find out what happened, by any means necessary.

With a nod to Fargo, and dark noir, Palm Beach, Finland is both a page-turning thriller and a black comedy about lust for money, fleeing dreams and people struggling at turning points in their lives - chasing their fantasies regardless of reason.

`A roller-coaster read and extraordinarily poignant' Guardian

`Inspired meld of crime and dark comedy ... Colorful characters and awkward situations, as when Nyman becomes a person of interest to the locals, enhance the zany plot. Tim Dorsey fans will have fun' Publishers Weekly

`A sort of Fargo in Finland, if you can imagine such a thing' Crime Reads

`Finnish criminal chucklemeister Tuomainen is channelling Carl Hiaasen in this hilarious novel set in a bizarre Florida-style beach resort on Finland's chilly shore. There are comically inept dim-crims, inventive psychos, a hot babe and even a blow-up pink flamingo - which is a lot for ace detective Jan Nyman to deal with when he arrives, undercover, to investigate a mysterious death' The Times Crime Club

`Tuomainen's crime comedy is frequently compared to Fargo-era Coen Brothers, but Florida's Carl Hiaasen is likely a strong influence too ... A full-blooded, off-kilter caper-gone-wrong that also serves as an acerbic commentary on the crime genre' Irish Times

`Right up there with the best' TLS

`Tuomainen's dark story manages to be as delicious as it is toxic' Sunday Express

'A tightly paced Scandinavian thriller with a wicked sense of humour' Foreword Reviews

`Like Fargo before it, unfortunate events take place and people get in over their heads ... The off kilter, black comedy tone is perfect for such a far-fetched story, guaranteeing plenty of spontaneous bouts of laughter' Culture Fly

`You'll laugh, you'll cry with laughter, what is there not to like? Welcome to a classic new holiday resort!' Crime Time

`A quirky, smirky, entertaining slice of fabulous ... A wonderful wave of dark humour rolls through this novel gathering raised eyebrows and snorts' Liz Robinson, LoveReading

`Antti Tuomainen always steps into the new with each novel and PALM BEACH FINLAND, in this assured translation by David Hackston, takes a Finnish slice from the comic, crazy, greedy, crime world of the likes of Get Shorty or Fargo. Where will Tuomainen's imagination take us next? I don't know but before that - read this one. Absolutely recommended' EuroCrime

`Tuomainen is one of those authors whose books are an automatic must-read so pick up or download a copy as soon as you can' Crime Fiction Lover
