Silence

A Novel

Jan Costin Wagner

A prize-winning psychological crime novel featuring the melancholy Finnish detective Kimmo Joentaa.

One ordinary summer’s day, a young girl disappears while cycling to volleyball practice. Her abandoned bike is found in exactly the same place that another girl was assaulted and murdered thirty-three years previously. The perpetrator was never brought to justice, so the authorities suspect the same killer has struck again. The eeriness of the crime unsettles not only the police and public, but also someone who has been carrying a burden of guilt for many years. . . .

Detective Kimmo Joentaa calls upon the help of his older colleague Ketola, who worked on the original murder, in the hope that they can solve both cases. While they are following up leads, the ripples from the impact of the new disappearance spread and Kimmo discovers that the truth is not always what you expect.

Jan Costin Wagner was born in 1972 near Frankfurt. He divides his time between Germany and Finland (the home country of his wife). His novels include Silence and Ice Moon.
