Summary

The arrival of a meteorite in a small Finnish town causes chaos and crime in this poignant, chilling and hilarious new thriller from the King of Helsinki Noir.

A man with dark thoughts on his mind is racing along the remote snowy roads of Hurmevaara in Finland when there is flash in the sky and something crashes into the car. That something turns about to be a highly valuable meteorite. With euro signs lighting up the eyes of the locals, the unexpected treasure is temporarily placed in a neighbourhood museum, under the watchful eye of a priest named Joel.   

But Joel has a lot more on his mind than simply protecting the riches that have apparently rained down from heaven. His wife has just revealed that she is pregnant. Unfortunately Joel has strong reason to think the baby isn’t his. As Joel tries to fend off repeated and bungled attempts to steal the meteorite, he must also come to terms with his own situation and discover who the father of the baby really is.   

Transporting the listener to the culture, landscape and mores of northern Finland, Little Siberia is both a crime novel and a hilarious, blacker-than-black comedy about faith and disbelief, love and death, and what to do when bolts from the blue - both literal and figurative - turn your life upside down.

Quirky black humour

I had read the “man who died “ and enjoyed a mystery story in a different style, different landscape and cultural setting. Little Siberia did not disappoint.

tepid, no theme

Simple, like something a high schooler would write. nothing unique. Most frustrating is that it's a thriller that offers no clues, so the conclusions may as well be random. Repeats details throughout instead of moving story forward. Found myself rolling my eyes a few times and laughing at 'serious' parts.
But its an easy listen if you just need something on in the background or to fall asleep.
