The Day of a Wrong Cat: my new novel (only in Finnish, for now)

So, I am to publish my new, fourth novel Väärän kissan päivä (in English its title would be The Day of a Wrong Cat) very soon, in August 2017. It’s going to look like this:

 

It’s kind of a detective story of a man whose mother escapes from a nursing home during highly experimental treatment for her dementia. The novel takes place in a single day during which the protagonist must face several strange and frightening truths (or are they lies?) about his own and his mother’s life – and numerous creepy cats that seem to lurk everywhere in the city of Marrasvirta that is celebrating its annual Great Autumn Festival. He and his mother used to so close in his early childhood but then something happened and somehow soul mates became strangers that barely could talk to each other anymore. In spite of all the scary things and revealing secrets he must face, this is his very last and best opportunity to learn to know his mother once again…

Probably this fourth novel of mine will be translated sooner or later but meanwhile you, my dear English speaking readers, will have an opportunity to read my second novel Secret Passages in a Hillside Town (originally published in 2010 under the Finnish title Harjukaupungin salakäytävät). Pushkin Press is going to publish it in 7th of December 2017.
