Dystopian space opera meets
sci-fi thriller somewhere between
the Earth, Mars and the Moon!

                                                                                                                                         Humor

Lumi is an Earth-born healer whose Mars-born spouse Sol
disappears unexpectedly on a work trip. As Lumi begins her
quest through space to find Sol, she delves gradually deeper
into Sol’s secrets and into her own past — finding that their
fates may have been connected for much longer than she
thought.

The Blackbird

A heart-gripping story of loss, letting
go, and of hope that won’t fade away —
based on a true story.

In August 1989 a young man goes on a cruise boat with his friends,
and disappears. The only thing that returns is a yellow backpack and
endless sorrow. The tragedy changes the lives of the whole family.
Uncertainty of the brother’s fate makes his little sister ask even years
later, what happened on that night on M/S Fennia?

The sister, grown up with the trauma, returns to the memories of past
with hope to finally be able to say goodbye.

and identity. layful, brilliant,

Natalia starts to see a therapist to help solve the problems in her sex
life. It is clear from the beginning that she is not going to play by the
rules of the therapy. The weekly sessions combine art, philosophy,
literature, childhood memories, and erotic experiences as a method of
treatment, and slowly they make Natalia lose all her inhibitions.
She starts to enjoy the therapy – maybe too much?

The novel takes a deconstructive approach to the self-help narratives
of our time and drives the tools of autofiction into a dead end, asking
what is concealed, when everything is revealed.                                            Y     ä ä      N            Teos

     Seven women meet in a white, undefined space, moments after their deaths. Time, as we
     understand it, has ceased to exist, and all bodily sensations seem to have disappeared. In
     turn they try to remember, to piece together the fragments of their lives, their identities,
     their lost loves, and to pinpoint the moment they left their former lives behind.
     Lindstedt plays with genres from essay to poetry, transitioning from humor to rage – while
     asking the reader to contemplate the question of death’s inevitability and what follows it.

     Scissors by Laura Lindstedt
     A gripping story of a mother’s love – or the lack of it for an adopted child.
     Maria adopts a little girl from China. Great expectations and the desire to love turn into
     inadequacies before the child’s blank stare. What happens if a child doesn’t respond at
     all? What if the mother and the child are afraid of each other?
     Lindstedt writes boldly about a woman’s life and the need to love one’s child. The novel
     discusses sensitive matters that are not often talked about: the distance between child
     and parent, the fear of failure, and finally a mother’s mental instability.

     A story of family conflicts, the ethics of science, and the search for identity in a commer-
     cialized society. When professor Joe Chayefski’s neuroscience lab in Baltimore is attacked by
     animal rights activists, he doesn’t connect the dots at first. But when he receives a phone call
     from Alina, his Finnish ex-wife, he begins to realize that the threats to his career and to his
     new family may be connected to Samuel, the son he left behind in Finland two decades ago.

                                                   Berlin-based Finnish mathematician, Erika leads a controlled, ordered life trying to
                                                   purge herself of superfluous emotions and needs. Yet when the worst thing imaginable

                                                   Meanwhile, in Helsinki, a young man named Tuovi is looking online for love in a
                                                   desperate attempt to soothe his fears. These two lost souls find salvation in each other
                                                   in unexpected ways. Sex and Mathematics is a frighteningly intelligent and visceral novel
                                                   about people in crisis, environmental disasters, about a confusing and erratic life, and the
                                                   beauty and logic of mathematics, while also exploring the agonies and ecstasies of sex.

                                                   The Bystander is a journey of one year in the life of its writer. When the narrator’s
                                                   debut novel is published, she feels like everything has changed. Strangely enough, no
                                                   one else seems to notice this.
                                                   At the same time ironic and earnest, the novel burrows into the issues of art, identity
                                                   and social norms. The text glows in the depiction of everyday details, it shifts between

     How did Finland turn into the North Korea of Europe?
     The Eusistocratic Republic of Finland has prioritized social stability and national health,
     and outlawed practically everything that might give one pleasure or cause addiction. Well,
     almost everything: the distribution of sex, an essential commodity of pleasure, is made as
     efficient as possible. In order to achieve this, the state has bred a new human subspecies:
     one that is receptive, submissive, and always willing. They used to be called “women”.

     Mikael, a young gay photographer, finds in the courtyard of his apartment block a small, man-
     like creature. It is a young troll, familiar from Scandinavian mythology – a demonic, wild beast –
     and it is the most beautiful thing he has ever seen. Mikael gives the troll a name, Pessi, and
     takes him home and hides him.
     What Mikael does not know is that trolls exude pheromones that have a profound aphrodisiac
     effect on all those around it. With tragic consequences, Mikael learns that the troll is the
     interpreter of man’s darkest, most forbidden impulses…

Facelift
by Miika Nousiainen

Tragicomic tale of life’s biggest
questions and their surprisingly
simple answers.
#humour #problems #wellbeing #socialmedia #fake #facelift

What connects a 70-year old widow, a guy from a motorbike club, a
single-father, and a personal carer? — They are all looking for an easy
solution for their problems.

In this case, the solution is Sanni, a wellbeing blogger with a perfect life.

But can every day be filled with freshly-baked spelt bread and rustic
pottery arrangements? It takes 3 seconds to get a perfect picture for
Instagram, but perhaps one should focus a little more on the rest of
the day, beyond those three seconds?

                                                                                German i hts sold

The Faithful Reader
by Max Seeck

A book-inspired serial killer is on the
loose. Jessica Niemi - a detective with
a mysterious past - steps up. A chase
for the faithful reader has begun!
#serialkiller #rituals #copycat #femaledetective #catandmouse #nordicnoir

Detective Jessica Niemi is called to investigate a murder case that is
unordinary. The wife of a famous writer, Roger Koponen, seems to have
been killed in a bizarre ritual. As more ritual murders occur, it becomes
obvious that Jessica is after a serial killer.

But the murders are not random – they follow a pattern taken from
Roger’s bestselling trilogy. Has a fan gone mad, or is this case more
personal? How can Jessica stop a criminal who knows every detail of the
book even better than the author?

and left to die in the winter.
He survives and an international
journey for answers begins!
#crime #revenge #espace #secretsfromthepast

A new novel by Finland’s #1 female crime writer
Aino is a ranger, located at a distant corner of the Finnish
wilderness. One day she finds a man fighting for his final breath.
The man, Tomas, has been abducted at the airport, drugged,
and abandoned to die. Aino saves his life, and when Tomas
recovers, together they hope to find out what happened and why.
Tomas learns that he has gotten involved in a murderous plot by
bloodthirsty motorbike gang.

Do they stand a chance against their new enemies? Can they find
a way out of the nightmare that someone else has started? Or is it
time to break the oaths, made so long ago...                                                 VALAPATTO

Henrik Valli despises his drug addict son, Niko. They’ve been an
unhappy family as long as they can remember. Henrik has done his
