The Man Who Died

1 Mins read

The Man Who Died brings an uncharacteristically humorous but beguiling departure for Finnish writer Antti Tuomainen, as he once again makes our Recommended page. What would you do if you discovered that you only had a few more weeks to live, that your wife was cheating on you and your mushroom business was in danger of being decimated by rivals? If you are the memorable main protagonist of this novel, Jaakko Kaunismaa, you would try to figure out if the three elements are connected. The results are often hilarious, if bloody, in this crime caper novel with a big heart. Read the full review here.
