Antti Tuomainen was an award-winning copywriter when he made his literary debut in 2007. In 2013, the Finnish press crowned Tuomainen the ‘King of Helsinki Noir’ when Dark as My Heart was published. With a piercing and evocative style, Tuomainen was one of the first to challenge the Scandinavian crime genre formula, and his poignant, dark and hilarious The Man Who Died became an international bestseller (with a TV adaptation in the works). His thriller Little Siberia won the Petrona Award for Best Scandinavian Crime Novel of the Year. In total, Tuomainen has been short- and longlisted for 12 UK awards.
