Good detectives come in all manner of guises... Meet Siiri and Irma, best friends and the queen bees of Sunset Grove, a retirement community for those still young at heart.

But when their comfortable world is upturned by a suspicious death at Sunset Grove, Siiri and Irma are shocked into doing something about it. They begin their own private investigations and form The Lavender Ladies Detective Agency. The trouble is, beneath Sunset Grove's calm facade, there is more going on than meets the eye

"Change is afoot at Sunset Grove retirement home, and its residents aren't impressed. Under threat from falling masonry, best friends Irma and Siiri are forced out of their home to negotiate twenty-first-century living in the centre of Helsinki. Their new surroundings throw up an endless number of daily challenges, from caring for the ailing Anna-Lisa to the mystery of which of the many remotes controls the TV. The pair are joined by growing numbers of friends in their flat-share, and their new close-quarters living raises some unexpected questions. As the Lavender Ladies begin to dig a little deeper, they find themselves following a trail of corruption, deceit and intimidation that might just lead them to their own front door. The Lavender Ladies must steel themselves for what is set to be their most dangerous case yet."--Provided by publisher

Best friends Irma and Siiri are relieved when they can finally return home, but things have changed in the retirement home . . . Sunset Grove is under new management, a sinister organisation that promises spiritual enlightenment in return for donations from its residents. And the staff seem to have disappeared, replaced by technology that remotely takes care of all of their needs, if only they could work out how to use it . . . The Lavender Ladies are increasingly suspicious of the new order and plan an elaborate act of sabotage. But their last hurrah has some drastic consequences - will the Lavender Ladies get more than they bargained for?
Tres abuelas y un plan de sabotaje by Minna Lindgren( )

2 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La original mezcla entre humor y thriller escandinavo protagonizada por un grupo de nonagenarias alcanza su cúspide en esta última entrega de la Trilogía de Helsinki . Tienen más de noventa años. Y si quieren justicia nada las detendrá. Las obras de mejora en la residencia El Bosque del Crepúsculo llegan a su fin y los ancianos pueden regresar a sus apartamentos. Ahora todo es diferente porque la dirección está en manos de una organización religiosa de dudosa legalidad; es poco probable que convertir a ancianos y pedirles su dinero esté permitido. Pero hay otro tema que preocupa más a los residentes: las innovaciones tecnológicas hacen que ya no se necesite la presencia de personas que cuiden de los ancianos. La supervisión médica se hace online, se ha sustituido a los enfermeros por inventos automatizados y el servicio de apoyo se presta por Internet desde la India. Las tres abuelas están hartas de una vida programada por ordenador, así que deciden tramar un plan para destruir el sistema informático. A su edad se pueden romper unas cuantas leyes y reglas si no hay justicia. Su intento de hackeo les hace acabar en prisión, pero después de una noche en la celda empiezan a vislumbrar un futuro un poco más libre. La aventura más emocionante está todavía por llegar. La crítica ha dicho... ℗ŁCómo lo he disfrutado! Las protagonistas son tan divertidas y simpáticas que no podía dejar de desear que una de ellas fuera mi abuela. Lukutoukan kultuuriblog

PERO NO VAN A DEJAR QUE LOS CRIMINALES SE SALGAN CON LA SUYA Siiri, Irma y Anna-Liisa creen haber recuperado la tranquilidad de su rutina diaria en El Bosque del Crepúsculo, el centro para la tercera edad de Helsinki en el que viven. Pero pronto las tres abuelas ven cómo su vida pasa a convertirse en un infierno por unas obras de reforma interminables. Los trabajos se inician escandalosamente temprano, el ruido es ensordecedor, en las paredes surgen agujeros, los residentes tienen que usar inodoros portátiles... y el joyero de Anna-Liisa desaparece misteriosamente. A las ancianas no les queda más remedio que mudarse a un piso compartido, donde sus costumbres y manías no harán la convivencia nada fácil. Siiri, Irma y Anna-Liisa comienzan además a darse cuenta de que las obras de su residencia son bastante sospechosas y pueden encubrir otras actividades criminales. Cuando los secretos empiecen a desvelarse las tres amigas descubrirán que en esta vida poca gente está tan libre de culpa como parece. La crítica dijo sobre Tres abuelas y un cocinero muerto... De Finlandia llega la Agatha Christie del norte. The Independent ℗ŁCómo lo he disfrutado! Las protagonistas son tan divertidas y simpáticas que no podía dejar de desear que una de ellas fuera mi abuela. Lukutoukan kulttuuriblogi Una historia descrita como una combinación de Miss Marple y El abuelo que saltó por la ventana y se largó y que intentará conquistar a los lectores españoles con cada una de sus tres entregas que se irán publicando en castellano. Todo literatura.es La inteligencia de la narración se gana al lector... Contiene una pertinente crítica al mundo en que vivimos y a sus retorcidos valores. Prueba que los ancianos nos son una masa uniforme sino un grupo de individuos que portan una cantidad única de experiencias y recuerdos. Savon sanomat
