As Red As Blood - Salla Simukka

Thanks Amazon Publishing and Net Galley for providing me with an free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.

I really liked this book. The first couple of chapters were a little like wth, but I figured out very soon what was actually going on. Three kids find 30k in euros covered in blood in a bag. Little did they know it was drug money and the drug dealers were ruthless. Lumikki gets involved and her life is on the line throughout the story.

For me, this kind of reminded me of a young Lizbeth Salander. Kind of like The Girl With the Dragon Tatoo in a YA version. Not sure if it's because of the authors coming from the same part of the world or what.

Anyhow, I really enjoyed this book. I was glad that I had the second in the trilogy on stand by to carry on the story.
