Waiting on Wednesday is a book meme held over at Breaking the Spine where bloggers share the titles they’re looking forward to. This week my choice is: As Red as Blood, and I may be a wee bit biased because I’ve interviewed Salla Simukka and she’s kind of fabulous! I’m so glad this is out!
A Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for teens? How brilliant does that sound? And, here’s the blurb:
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for teens—this international bestseller is a thrilling, edge-of-your-seat Nordic noir that chills to the bone, and not just because of the bleak winter setting.
Lumikki Andersson has made it a rule to stay out of things that do not involve her. She knows all too well that trouble comes to those who stick their nose where it doesn’t belong. But Lumikki’s rule is put to the test when she uncovers thousands of washed Euro notes hung to dry in her school’s darkroom and three of her classmates with blood on their hands. Literally.
A web of lies and deception now has Lumikki on the run from those determined to get the money back—no matter the cost. At the center of the chaos: Polar Bear, the mythical drug lord who has managed to remain anonymous despite hosting lavish parties and having a notorious reputation. If Lumikki hopes to make it out alive, she’ll have to uncover the entire operation.
Even the cold Finnish winter can’t hide a culprit determined to stain the streets red.
SEE? Good right? Now go read my interview with her. Nods.
What are you waiting on this week?
