A hitman. A journalist. A shattered family. A mine spewing toxic secrets that threaten to poison them all.

In the dead of winter, investigative reporter Janne Vuori sets out to uncover the truth about a mining company, whose illegal activities have created an environmental disaster in a small town in Northern Finland. When the company's executives begin to die in a string of mysterious accidents, and Janne's personal life starts to unravel, past meets present in a catastrophic series of events that could cost him his life.

A traumatic story of family, a study in corruption, and a shocking reminder that secrets from the past can return to haunt us, with deadly results... The Mine is a gripping, beautifully written, terrifying and explosive thriller by the King of Helsinki Noir.

`Tuomainen writes beautifully' Publishers Weekly

`Clever, atmospheric and wonderfully imaginative' Sunday Mirror

`A simple story told with passion and elegant sadness' Times

'Tersely written, full of twists and sudden violence, this is nothing less than the birth of a new genre: dystopian detection' Sunday Telegraph

`Tuomainen's spare style suits the depressing subject and raises a serious question: how do you hope when law and order break down?' Financial Times

'Antti Tuomainen is a wonderful writer, whose characters, plots and atmosphere are masterfully drawn' Yrsa Sigurdardottir
