Salla Simukka: Valkea kuin lumi (Lumikki Andersson, #2)
(As White as Snow, Snow White, #2)

Lumikki Andersson is backpacking in Prague, where the weather is scorching hot. A girl approaches her in a small café and claims to be her half sister. Lumikki’s parents seem to be hiding a secret concerning the family’s past, so the girl’s claim rouses Lumikki’s interest. Despite her erratic behaviour, the girl manages to persuade Lumikki to join a religious family community. Later it turns out that the members are no relation to each other, after all. But it is not until Lumikki learns that the cult leaders are planning mass suicide that she understands just how dangerous the cult is. Furthermore, someone is planning to profit from the tragedy. Lumikki gets acquainted with the streets and graveyards of Prague when she is forced to run for her life to prevent the tragedy. The religion of the cult is not pure; and innocence is not as white as snow.

Once upon a time, there was a girl who had a secret.

Lumikki's story continues. This time freezing Tampere has switched to scorching hot Prague. This time the story feels more real when it's not happening in Finland.

I love Simukka's writing style, it's so detailed that I could really imagine being there and seeing what Lumikki is seeing. After reading this book, Prague is in my "must visit someday"-list.

The second book wasn't as difficult to read or as confusing as the first one. Maybe it was 'cos I got used to Simukka's writing style or maybe this was just more straightforward-type of book. I donät know whick one, but I really loved this book and finished it in only few hours.

The book wasn't too long, story progression was just perfect. There were enough details, but things also happened pretty fast and you couldn't get bored. This was one of those book that I needed to finish in one sitting. I just couldn't put it down, there were always something exciting happening. I must say that I'm really looking forward to reading next and final book in this series that will be published in couple weeks.
