My First Murder

Leena Lehtolainen (Author) Owen F Witesman (Translator)


After a student choir's practice session at a Helsinki villa turns deadly, Detective Maria Kallio finds herself in the middle of the action -- and her first murder case. Someone in the group wanted playboy Tommi Peltonen dead, but that's one song these suspects refuse to sing. Behind the choir's jovial facade lies bitter passion, and the victim's seemingly perfect life hid a host of sins that made him a target of almost everyone in the villa. As a young female -- and a redhead to boot -- Maria knows that solving this case will help her overcome her perceived shortcoming in the eyes of her colleagues. But as the case takes startling twists and turns, and friends and foes become interchangeable, will she be able to piece together the clues before the killer strikes again?

About the Author

Leena Lehtolainen was born in Vesanto, Finland, to parents who taught language and literature. As a child, she made up stories in her head before she could even write. At the age of ten, she wrote her first book, a young adult novel, which was published two years later. Besides writing, Leena is fond of classical singing, her beloved cats, and--her greatest passion--figure skating. She attends many competitions as a skating journalist and writes for a Finnish figure-skating magazine, Taitoluistelu. Snow Woman is the fourth installment in the bestselling Maria Kallio series, which debuted in English in 2012 with My First Murder and continued in 2013 with Her Enemy and Copper Heart. Leena lives in Finland with her husband and two sons.
