The Man Who Died by Antti Tuomainen - Cover Reveal

Today, I'm delighted and excited to be hosting the cover reveal for The Man Who Died by Antti Tuomainen, which is being published by Orenda Books in October 2017.

The Man Who Died: Read the blurb

A successful entrepreneur in the mushroom industry, Jaakko Kaunismaa is a man in his prime. At just 37 years of age, he is shocked when his doctor tells him that he’s dying. What is more, the cause is discovered to be prolonged exposure to toxins; in other words, someone has slowly but surely been poisoning him. Determined to find out who wants him dead, Jaakko embarks on a suspenseful rollercoaster journey full of unusual characters, bizarre situations and unexpected twists.
With a nod to Fargo and the best elements of the Scandinavian noir tradition, The Man Who Died is a page-turning thriller brimming with the blackest comedy surrounding life and death, and love and betrayal, marking a stunning new departure for the King of Helsinki Noir.

LOVE the sound of this!!! Can't wait to read it!

The Man Who Died: Read about author Antti Tuomainen

Finnish Antti Tuomainen (b. 1971) was an award-winning copywriter when he made his literary debut in 2007 as a suspense author. The critically acclaimed My Brother’s Keeper was published two years later. In 2011 Tuomainen’s third novel, The Healer,  won Best Finnish Crime Novel of the Year,  and was shortlisted for the Glass Key Award. The Finnish press labelled The Healer – the story of a writer desperately searching for his missing wife in a post-apocalyptic Helsinki – ‘unputdownable’. Two years later in 2013 they crowned Tuomainen ‘The King of Helsinki Noir’ when Dark as My Heart was published. His third book published in English, The Mine, has confirmed his place at the heart of the genre. With a piercing and evocative style, Tuomainen is one of the first to challenge the Scandinavian crime genre formula, and his books are published in 29 countries. The Man Who Died marks yet another departure, and rights have been sold at auction internationally.
