Kai Malmirinne spends most of his time on the road and sleeping in hotels, selling his company’s products during the day and seducing women at night, both of which he does very well.
One day he comes home from a trip to find that his wife Raisa has left with no explanation and he cannot figure out why. The police cannot help him and Raisa’s sister Raili is just as clueless. Soon Kai receives mysterious letters from Raisa which only make the situation stranger.
Colorful character descriptions which are a joy to read and possibly the most eye-poppingly funny description of sex, the likes of which I’m not sure I have read before.
The end wasn’t quite as ingenious as I expected it to be, but by that time, my expectations were rather high. I suppose it could also be due to the fact that I have read more than one novel in which this type of ‘explanation’ was used and I do read a lot… I liked the very last paragraph very much though, which made up for it a little.
