An elderly woman agrees to sell her life to a blocked writer she meets at a book fair. She needs to talk - her husband has not spoken since a family tragedy some months ago. She claims that her grown-up children are doing well, but the writer imagines less salubrious lives for them, as the downturn of Finland's economic boom begins to bite. Perhaps he's on to something. The Human Part is pure laugh-out-loud satire, laying bare the absurdities of modern society in the most vicious and precise manner imaginable

Zakon narave je hkrati smrtno resen in na moč zabaven roman. Groza in lepota, življenje in smrt ter jok in smeh se v njem izmenjujejo z bliskovito naglico. Ko na podeželski cesti poči, je strokovnjak za toplotne črpalke Rautala vržen v drugo resničnost. Iz dneva v dan negibno leži na bolniški postelji, popolnoma odvisen od drugih. Medicinska sestra Laura daje injekcije, umiva, premešča, šepeta na uho, daje upanje in prenese vse: nasilne starce, nenehno brbljajoče ljudi, gospode, ki jo zmerjajo, in jezne ženske. A če je do zdaj še vse potrpežljivo prenesla, Rautale ne bo: z enim stavkom jo bo pahnil čez mejo, od koder se bo le počasi in s težavo vrnila

" Rikosylikomisario liittyy sekakuoroon ja toivoo, että uusi harrastus vie ajatukset pois työasioista. Toisin käy. Sillä samassa kuorossa laulavat myös Suntio ja Parturikampaaja, joita riivaavat taloudellinen ahdinko ja rakkauden hiipuminen, ja joita siksi yhdistää synkkien salaisuuksien vyyhti. Rikosylikomisario löytää tahtomattaan heidän kanssaan yhteisen sävelen, mutta se kulkee nuotin vieressä. Seurauksena on pyörre, joka vie järjen ja antaa tilalle tulen. Kuoro humisee, henki pihisee. Mitä tekee se, joka ei ole koskaan mitään tehnyt? Mistä muistetaan se, joka on aina itsensä unohtanut? Mitä tapahtuu kun ylittää rajan? Ja millaisiin vaatteisiin vainajat puetaan? Hypnoottinen ja kiihkeä romaani asettaa kysymyksiä, joihin ei ole vastausta ja vastaa kysymyksiin, joita ei yleensä kysytä. Henkireikä on romaani rakkauden ja vihan töistä. Se on järkyttävän hauska ja kipeän traaginen romaani rikoksen anatomiasta, siitä mitä emme kenties tee, mutta jota suunnittelemme. Kari Hotakainen virittää lyyrisen proosansa ennennäkemättömille kierroksille, mutta vauhdissakin lause palvelee maailmaa, jota se kuvaa ja luo. Tämä kirja on kirjoitettu tilassa. " -- (Siltala)
