In the midst of the freezing Arctic winter, seventeen-year-old Lumikki Andersson walks into her school's dark room and finds a stash of wet, crimson-colored money. Thousands of Euros left to dry--splattered with someone's blood.

Lumikki lives alone in a studio apartment far from her parents and the past she left behind. She transferred into a prestigious art school, and she's singularly focused on studying and graduating. Lumikki ignores the cliques, the gossip, and the parties held by the school's most popular and beautiful boys and girls.

But finding the blood-stained money changes everything. Suddenly, Lumikki is swept into a whirlpool of events as she finds herself helping to trace the origins of the money. Events turn even more deadly when evidence points to dirty cops and a notorious drug kingpin best known for the brutality with which he runs his business.

As Lumikki loses control of her carefully constructed world, she discovers that she's been blind to the forces swirling around her--and she's running out of time to set them right. When she sees the stark red of blood on snow, it may be too late to save her friends or herself.

This is one of my favorite books of all time. Good storytelling and a strong character to lead the plot. I recommend this to everyone.

I was literally on edge the entire time. The pacing and suspension is perfect and you root for Lumikki so hard!! Very strong heroine and very good story.

Great story-telling style with a wonderful main character. This was a page turning, super-quick read, somewhat gritty, and a good choice for fans of Holly Black.

This book was not that good. It was barely interesting. I don't know if having it translated into English made it lose some of its interesting flavor, but I really didn't like this. I kept with it to see if it would pay off later, but it was rough.

Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy in exchange for my honest review.
