Product description


Alright, hold on tight, because this is the best novel you will read this fall * Femina (Denmark) * Sofi Oksanen is one of the brightest shining stars in Nordic literature. I want to devour Norma whole. * Norrkoepings Tidningar (Sweden) * Norma is addictive, lucid, breathtakingly suspenseful, and on top of this it is stunningly observant, eerily well-researched, critical, with feminist overtones and very, very relatable * Affarsmagasinet Forum (Finland) * A phenomenon * The Times on PURGE * Powerful, passionately wrought, emotionally shattering, extraordinary * Independent on PURGE * Purge stands out. Murder, sexual violence and political history combine to place Oksanen in the front rank of crime novelists. * Sunday Times on PURGE * Finland's hottest crime writer will soon be as well-known as Stieg Larsson * The Times on PURGE * Essential reading: Purge is not a book to read last thing at night. * Economist on PURGE *

From the Inside Flap

From the internationally best-selling author of Purge and When the Doves Disappeared, a spellbinding new novel set in present-day Helsinki, about a young woman with a fantastical secret who is trying to solve the mystery of her mother's death.
When Anita Naakka jumps in front of an oncoming train, her daughter, Norma, is left alone with the secret they have spent their lives hiding: Norma has supernatural hair, sensitive to the slightest changes in her mood--and the moods of those around her--moving of its own accord, corkscrewing when danger is near. And so it is her hair that alerts her, while she talks with a strange man at her mother's funeral, that her mother may not have taken her own life. Setting out to reconstruct Anita's final months--sifting through puzzling cell phone records, bank statements, video files--Norma begins to realize that her mother knew more about her hair's powers than she let on: a sinister truth beyond Norma's imagining. As Sofi Oksanen leads us ever more deeply into Norma's world, weaving together past and present, she gives us a dark family drama that is a searing portrait of both the exploitation of women's bodies and the extremes to which people will go for the sake of beauty. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
