From the internationally acclaimed author of Purge comes a chillingly suspenseful, deftly woven novel that opens up a little-known yet still controversial chapter of history: the occupation, resistance and collaboration in Estonia during and after World War II. In a masterfully told story of surveillance, deception passion and betrayal, Sofi Oksanen brings to life both the frailty, and the resilience, of humanity under the shadow of tyranny.
Sofi Oksanen was born in Finland and a former graduate of the Finnish Theatre Academy. She is the author of three novels. Purge is her first novel to be published in English translation. She lives in Helsinki.
