REVIEW: BEHIND GOD'S BACK
REVIEW BEHIND GOD'S BACK An exciting and intriguing mystery from a land fairly new to crime and noir fiction, Finland. Additionally, this book and its precursor, NIGHTS OF AWE, both "starring" police detective Ariel Kafka (what a special name!), carry ethnic overtones: Kafka is a Helsinki Jew, non-observant, and BEHIND GOD'S BACK focuses on crimes against Jews, which may be ethnically related. Kafka is a bit of a bumbler in his personal and social life, but endeavors himself to the reader through his humility.
