When an old man is found dead on the road - seemingly run over by a Hungarian au pair - police investigator Anna Fekete is certain that there is more to the incident than meets the eye. As she begins to unravel an increasingly complex case, she’s led on a deadly trail where illegal immigration, drugs and, ultimately, murder threaten not only her beliefs, but her life. Anna’s partner Esko is entrenched in a separate but equally dangerous investigation into the activities of an immigrant gang, where deportation orders and raids cause increasing tension and result in desperate measures by gang members - and the police themselves. Then a bloody knife is found in the snow, and the two cases come together in ways that no one could have predicted. As pressure mounts, it becomes clear that having the law on their side may not be enough for Anna and Esko. Chilling, disturbing and terrifyingly believable, The Defenceless is an extraordinary, vivid and gripping thriller by one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction. WINNER: Best Finnish Crime Novel 2014 ‘It’s like reading Henning Mankell, when Senior Constable Anna Fekete works on several tricky cases in the icy-cold winter of Northern Finland while contemplating the harshness of life’ Helsingin Sanomat ‘As the plot keeps deepening, Hiekkapelto turns out to be incredibly skilful at carrying off a complicated story ... the suspense feels real and the writing flows nicely’ Savon Sanomat ‘Hiekkapelto really treats her readers like royalty. The plot - with all its twists, its humorous yet wise narration - guarantees a perfect reading experience. I’m sorry for the superlatives, but I believe The Defenceless is the Book of the Year for me’ Literary Blog Rakkaudesta Kirjoihin

Ο υποδιοικητής χαμογέλασε όταν σκέφτηκε την ομοιότητα που ένιωθε ότι υπήρχε ανάμεσα σ’ εκείνον και στον ιχνηλάτη σκύλο».Ο Ρόκκο Σκιαβόνε είχε μανία να παρομοιάζει με ζώο κάθε ανθρώπινη φυσιογνωμία που συναντούσε μπροστά του. Περισσότερο όμως από το σέτερ που προκάλεσε τη σκέψη, ο υποδιοικητής θύμιζε μάλλον κυνηγόσκυλο σπινόνε, δασύτριχο, απεριποίητο και όχι ιδιαίτερα κοινωνικό όπως είναι, πάντα όμως πειθαρχημένο στο ένστικτο του κυνηγού. Ο Σκιαβόνε είναι εριστικός μπάτσος, κάθε άλλο παρά άσπιλος και αμόλυντος, από τη Ρώμη και πιο συγκεκριμένα από το Τραστέβερε, με πληγωμένη ψυχή και αθεράπευτες ενοχές. Στην Αόστα που τον έχουν μεταθέσει, θα προτιμούσε να προφυλάσσει από τη βροχή τα αγαπημένα του Clarks και ν’ απολαμβάνει τις εφήμερες ερωτικές του σχέσεις παρά ν’ αρχίσει άλλη μια έρευνα στις χιονισμένες Άλπεις.Μια γυναίκα, μια σύζυγος που πλησίαζε στο φθινόπωρο της ζωής, βρέθηκε πεθαμένη από την οικιακή βοηθό. Κρεμασμένη από το πολύφωτο ενός δωματίου βυθισμένου στο σκοτάδι. Οι καταστροφές τριγύρω φανερώνουν κλοπή. Ο Ρόκκο δεν πείθεται. Μια σειρά από συμπτώσεις και αποκλίσεις, όπως και το αμφιλεγόμενο πολλών χαρακτήρων, μετατρέπουν σιγά σιγά την εικόνα της ληστείας σε ομιχλώδες τοπίο ανθρώπινου, περιβαλλοντικού και εγκληματικού μυστηρίου.
