It's two days before Christmas and Helsinki is battling a ruthless climate catastrophe: subway tunnels are flooded; abandoned vehicles are left burning in the streets; the authorities have issued warnings for malaria, tuberculosis, Ebola, and the plague. People are fleeing to the far north of Finland and Norway, where conditions are still tolerable. Social order is crumbling and private secruity firms have undermined the police force. Tapani Lehtinen, a struggling poet, is among the few still able and willing to live in the city. When Tapani's beloved wife, Johanna, a newpaper journalist, goes missing, he embarks on a frantic hunt for her. Johanna's disappearance seems to be connected to a story she was researching about a politically motivated serial killer know as "The Healer."

But as Aleksi soon discovers, delving into Saarinen and his alluring daughter's family secrets is a confusing and dangerous enterprise.

Dramatiske klimaforandringer preger verden og millioner av mennesker er på flukt. Det høye nord har ennå levelige forhold og er blitt et yndet tilfluktssted for europeere. Bortføringer og drap er hverdagskost i Helsinki, og journalisten Johanna er en av dem som forsvinner. Hun skrev på en historie om en seriemorder som kaller seg Helbrederen. Han dreper kjente forretningsmenn og deres familier, siden han holder dem ansvarlig for klimakrisen. Poeten Taipani leter fortvilet etter sin forsvunne kone Johanna, og finner etter hvert ut at hemmeligheter i fortiden knytter henne til seriemorderen.

Aleksi Kivi mistet moren sin da han var 13 år gammel. Hun bare forsvant. Tjue år senere føler Aleksi seg sikker på hvem som står bak morens forsvinning, men politiet er ikke enige. Ifølge forlaget er dette en poetisk kriminalroman som kan minne om en gresk tragedie, en beretning om livslang ensomhet, om hevnens pris og kjærlighetens kraft. Antti Tuomainen debuterte på norsk med «Helbrederen» (2013), som fikk gode omtaler
