Finished In the Name and Blood by Ilkka Remes, it was trash. The first 5 pages gave off that it would have been a great hard-boiled story but it ended up being shit with alot of wool over it. the culprit was lmao and they wasted 200 out of 460 pages on a side story that they wanted to make seem like it mattered in the grand scheme of things, but it didn’t. It was stupid as fuck, and I was rolling my eyes when the paper that the side story was about got destroyed at the end by an asspulled Irakian agent in a finnish church at the right time that the bus kidnapping and attempted bombing took place. Also the cast CRAP, only 2 character are portrayed as the heroes and the rest as shit and some kind of racists and haters of religion.
The book is some kind of best seller but I think I know better than to just say popularity=good nowadays.


The coolest part has to be the beginning of the 2nd part of the story (3+epilogue, the story transitioned from place to place in like 65 chapters all the time) where the crime inspector Johanna Vahtera is going to one of the vic’s friends house after being called and the friend gets killed and Johanna comes there. That’s the most suspensful part and as you can tell, it’s not even that good sadly.

Filler dialogue is everywhere in this story also. Who cares about some coffee cup and the inspectors nonexistant love life while terrorists are supposedly kidnapping people and the first serial killer around these parts is still around?

Yeah it was something that I should have never done but I returned the book immediately after finishing it and I’m never going to touch this author’s works ever again.

Did you get any money back, or was it from a libary?

LOL I would too. Or use it for target practice

Aparantly the author had written 14 other books as well. Not sure if they would be any better though.

There were some teaser type of shit at the end of the book for like the last 9 pages and it seems around 5 of those books are crime stories starring a 14 year old kid as the main character that gets into problems one after another so idk.

By the look of the cover, I definitly agree. The movies were great, hopefully the book is just as good.

I’m not going to keep reading Remes’s books.. too much pretentious stuff related to religion and global fiction about other countries

Gotcha. Doesn’t seem like a good author anyways.

I, initially, thought this was a troll thread by just reading the title- if you add: by x(Ilkka Remes)person, that would avoid confusion and more people would probably see the thread.

Anyway, most modern popular books are trash in my opinion, unless they are educational.
That’s why I mostly read older books that are legitimate good.
