Summary

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 roller-coaster 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 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.

Knew it was good right from 1st page

Original. Interesting how time slows when you are in critical moments. How you notice many simultaneous minutiae. Well described here. Good yarn. Loved it. Narrator hit just the right type of delivery.

A murder with some humour.


Humorous and sometimes irreverent, but never boring, a crime story with a difference that will not disappoint especially if you are not a person who reads the genre all the time, and a breath of fresh air if you do.

A very entertaining read with a good plot and a likeable character that keeps you engaged and smiling.

A fresh story line albeit a bit slow

Not a fast mover but a good story with good characters. New storyline that I haven’t heard before.
