Summary, etc.:
What makes life perfect? Insurance mathematician Henri Koskinen knows the answer because he calculates everything down to the very last decimal. And then, for the first time, Henri is faced with the incalculable. After suddenly losing his job, Henri inherits an adventure park from his brother - its peculiar employees and troubling financial problems included. The worst of the financial issues appear to originate from big loans taken from criminal quarters... and some dangerous men are very keen to get their money back. But what Henri really can't compute is love. In the adventure park, Henri crosses paths with Laura, an artist with a chequered past, and a joie de vivre and erratic lifestyle that bewilders him. As the criminals go to extreme lengths to collect their debts and as Henri's relationship with Laura deepens, he finds himself faced with situations and emotions that simply cannot be pinned down on his spreadsheets...

Translated from the Finnish.
Author Notes

With a piercing and evocative style, Antti Tuomainen was one of the first to challenge the Scandinavian crime genre formula, and his poignant, dark, and hilarious The Man Who Died became an international bestseller, shortlisting for the Petrona and Last Laugh Awards. Palm Beach Finland was an immense success, with The Times calling Tuomainen ‘the funniest writer in Europe,’ and Little Siberia was shortlisted for the Capital Crime/Amazon Publishing Readers Awards, the Last Laugh Award, and the CWA International Dagger, and won the Petrona Award for Best Scandinavian Crime Novel.

David Hackston is a British translator of Finnish and Swedish literature and drama.
