  • Q & A
Hard-nosed hit man Raid is driving toward the Arctic Circle with Nygren, a career criminal in the twilight of his life. As they journey northward, Nygren puts his affairs in order, wreaking vengeance on those who have wronged him and paying penance to those he has wronged. Their first stop is at a church, where a sham preacher is fleecing his congregation for money. Soon, both cops and crooks are on the trail of the mysterious pair. Detective Lieutenant Jansson and his colleagues are interested in any potential jobs the notorious criminals might be planning. A couple of accomplices from Nygren's past believe he has a hidden stash of cash, and want a share for themselves. In the end, the pilgrimage leaves a trail of wounded and dead in its wake.About the Author: Harri Nykanen, born in 1953, is a Finnish author who has written nearly 30 books, the best known of which are his Raid novels. Nykanen's work has been translated into several languages, but only recently has it become available in English, first with Raid and the Blackest Sheep, and now with Raid and the Kid. A TV series based on the Raid character has appeared in Finland and select U.S. markets, and a Raid movie screened in theaters across Finland.

"Raid has a lot of the same quiet vengeance as the characters that Clint Eastwood creates on the silver screen; both have the ability to make even murder seem justified." - Länsi-Suomi

"Two honest criminals contemplate the meaning of life... Nykanen writes clever dialogue and his laconic humour is an enjoyment for every reader." - Aamulehti
