Publisher's Summary

Noora Nieminen was destined to become a world champion. But when the sixteen-year-old skating sensation is found slain with her own skates, her promising career is unexpectedly cut short.

Detective Maria Kallio is seven months pregnant, but that isn't going to stop her from putting everything she has into solving the murder. With a promotion on the line and her arrogant adversary, Pertti Ström, vying for the new job, Maria is determined to make an arrest. Could it be the deviant criminal who's lately been terrorizing the city? Is it the former lover of Noora's mother, who has been stalking the family since she rejected him? Or might the killer be someone even closer than that? With so much riding on Noora's success - and so many people with motives to murder - the detective must sift through the long list of suspects before the case turns ice cold.

Death Spiral, the fifth book in Lehtolainen's international bestselling Nordic crime series, is a chilling tale of hot tempers, high stakes, and the untimely death of a rising star.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Great murder mystery!"

    A 16 year old wold class figure skater is brutally murdered near her home in Finland. Her body is placed in the trunk of a car in a parking deck. Sargent Maria Callio, 4 weeks before the start of her maternity leave, is assigned the case. The murder case is set in the figure skating world in Finland. The potential murders are many.

    Death Spiral is a well written and narrated murder mystery.
