Product description

Review

"Set in a stifling Hungarian Serbia, the birthplace of a police officer who has taken refuge in Finland after the war in Yugoslavia.On a trip to visit her family village (with its quota of generational secrets and dysfunctionality) she finds herself caught up in a tense conflict between Hungarian nationalism and anti-Roma prejudice. Here, everyone is exiled. Hiekkapelto's political stance puts her alongside the early work of Henning Mankell and aligns her with the many Nordic writers exploring the effects of multiculturalism and globalisation on what were once largely monoethnic societies." -- The TLS

"Hiekkapelto shackles this serpentine tale to a frame of moral and social outrage at the dismissive attitude of much of Europe to the plight of refugees, and in particular the Roma community. A gut-punch of a book." --The Metro

"Probably Hiekkapelto's best book to date, The Exiled looks with insight and compassion at the lot of displaced people migrating through Europe and depressingly familiar attitudes to Roma." --Crime Pieces

Praise for The Defenceless

"Without a shadow of a doubt Kati Hiekkapelto has taken a firm place in the Nordic Noir sphere, creating tense, vivid and compelling stories, with strong characterisation . . . and a very contemporary social commentary. The novel, in perfect translation by David Hackston, is so beautifully multifaceted that I'm already rereading it." --Crime Review

About the Author

Kati Hiekkapelto was born in 1970 in Oulu, Finland. She wrote her first stories at the age of two and recorded them on cassette tapes. The main characters in these early tales were elephants, elves and little girls, so she's moved on a little from that. Kati worked as a local private detective between 1979 and 1982, and solved many serious crimes committed by her neighbours. By the age of twelve she had read all Agatha Christie's novels, and was sure that her mother is going to poison her. In 1984 she had a bad hairdresser experience and became a punker. She's been punker, environmental and human rights activist since then.Kati has studied Fine Arts in Liminka Art School and Special Education at the University of Jyvaskyla. The subject of her final thesis/dissertation was racist bullying in Finnish schools. She went on to work as a special-needs teacher for immigrant children. Today Kati is an international crime writer, punk singer and performance artist. Her books Kolibri (The Hummingbird) was published in Finland by Otava in 2013 and Suojattomat (The Defenceless) in 2014. To date, they have been translated into seven languages. The Hummingbird was shortlisted for the Petrona Award in the UK in 2015 and The Defenceless won the prize for the best Finnish Crime Novel of the Year 2014. The Defenceless was also one of the top ten bestselling books in Finland last year, across all genres.She lives and writes in her 200-year-old farmhouse in Hailuoto, an island in the Gulf of Bothnia, North Finland. In her free time she rehearses with her band, runs, hunts, picks berries and mushrooms, and gardens. During long, dark winter months she chops wood to heat her house, shovels snow and skis. Writing seems fairly easy, after all that.
