Snow Woman

Leena Lehtolainen’s Snow Woman is centered on a FinnishDetective Maria Kallio’s investigation of a possible murder at a feminist retreat center. Many misogynistic stories are told through the possible suspects who are staying at the retreat center. Child abuse, religious oppression, rape, statutory rape, amongst others. Kallio is an interesting choice as a detective and I really enjoyed seeing how a woman police officer would handle early pregnancy while working such a demanding job.

The ending was unexpected but well set up. Good read.
