New Book: The Mine

In the space of a few snowy January days, journalist Janne Vuori's life becomes unhinged. First he receives an anonymous tip: a nickel mine in Northern Finland supposedly engages in illegal activities that could lead to an environmental disaster. Then – for the first time in thirty years – he meets his father who has unexpectedly returned to Helsinki.

As Janne investigates the mine and the dubious business practices behind it, the relationship with his mysterious and strangely knowing father deepens. To complicate things further, various people connected to Janne’s investigation and the mining company turn up dead.

THE MINE tells the story of father and son, of two driven men and one unusual family. It digs hungrily into the earth and under the skin, asks topical questions and demands eternal answers. THE MINE is a story about greed and secrets, blood ties and blood work, murder and redemption. And, ultimately, about how far you would go to protect the ones you love and the things you value.

THE MINE will be published in Finland in August 2015.
