4/5


Goodreads Description:
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo for teens—this international bestseller is a thrilling, edge-of-your-seat Nordic noir that chills to the bone, and not just because of the bleak winter setting.

Lumikki Andersson has made it a rule to stay out of things that do not involve her. She knows all too well that trouble comes to those who stick their nose where it doesn’t belong. But Lumikki’s rule is put to the test when she uncovers thousands of washed Euro notes hung to dry in her school’s darkroom and three of her classmates with blood on their hands. Literally.

A web of lies and deception now has Lumikki on the run from those determined to get the money back—no matter the cost. At the center of the chaos: Polar Bear, the mythical drug lord who has managed to remain anonymous despite hosting lavish parties and having a notorious reputation. If Lumikki hopes to make it out alive, she’ll have to uncover the entire operation.

Even the cold Finnish winter can’t hide a culprit determined to stain the streets red.
 


Holy shit guys.
This is a book you either swear by or hate.
I swear by it. The book was fast paced and the type that if it was a movie you would be jumping up and down, chewing your lip and possibly screaming at the screen. There where something that where lacking or where a bit confusing about what exactly was happening but I shall go ahead and blame that to the Finnish to English translation. The main character, Lumikki was a bit hard to like, as much as I like what was going on around, I simply couldn't really root for her. She was the type of character that just appears to try too hard to be relatable.

Recommend it?
Yup
