Inspector Kari Vaara, recovering from brain surgery, is back to doing police work - under circumstances most cops only dream of. Reporting directly to the national chief, Vaara and his partners Milo and Sulo have been granted secrecy and autonomy for their new black-ops unit, and plenty of cash to work with, including whatever they can steal from Helsinki's mobsters. But the president of Finland outranks even the police chief, and he wants Vaara on a new case: the vicious assassination of a prominent immigrants' rights activist. Against a backdrop of simmering hatred spreading across the county, Vaara must solve a case that involves the kidnapping of a billionaire's children, a Faustian bargain with a former French Legionnaire, and Vaara's own wife.

Wow, inspector Kari Vaara really has a lot on his plate in this novel. Apparently no one told him you don't make life-changing decisions during a health crisis (especially one involving your brain!). Kari agrees to head a black ops unit of the Helsinki police in return for making major crime rings such as white slavery a top priority. Even I didn't believe that! Kari (fresh off brain surgery with some troubling lingering effects) along with Milo and Sweetness steal tons of money and cut off the drug trade but where is all the money going? Kari gets in deeper and deeper when he agrees to investigate some high profile race-related crimes. This book was kind of a blood-bath and ultimately kind of depressing for our hero and his family but sure kept the pages turning. How in the world is he going to right things?

see oldproof's comment on Lucifers Tears pretty well fits the books I've read and the others I've just checked over.
