    1. BLURBMurder. Corruption. Dark secrets. A titanic wave of refugees. Can Anna solve a terrifying case that's become personal?Anna Fekete returns to the Balkan village of her birth for a relaxing summer holiday. But when her purse is stolen and the thief is found dead on the banks of the river, Anna is pulled into a murder case. Her investigation leads straight to her own family, to closely guarded secrets concealing a horrendous travesty of justice that threatens them all. As layer after layer of [...]

    2. When Anna Fekete returns to her home town of Kanizsa in Serbia for a holiday and has her bag stolen by a thief who is later found dead her investigation takes her on journey she never expected. This is the third book in the Detective Anna Fekete series, however it works perfectly as a standalone novel as I have not read the previous two. The first chapter immediately drew me in with it’s stunning prose and the need to know what has led to that situation as Kati gives you a glimpse of what’s [...]

    3. I have to admit this is the first book that I have read by Kati Hiekkapelto, something I will definitely be remedying in the coming weeks as I fully intend to buy copies of the other books featuring Detective Anna Fekete.The Exiled is actually the third book in the Detective Anna Fekete series, and thankfully this can be read without reading The Hummingbird or The Defenceless. There are references to prior cases and colleagues but these are minimal so does not impact upon your enjoyment of the s [...]

    4. The Exiled – An Excellent Crime Thriller The Exiled, proving why Kati Hiekkapelto is a brilliant writer and spearheading the Finnish invasion of English crime fiction as she is in top form again. The Exiled is the third in Heikkapelto’s Anna Fekete series that has been so popular in her native Finland, and for once there is no snow in this thriller, but plenty of twists turns as if on ice.Anna Fekete has finally decided to take a holiday and get out of Finland and head ‘home’ to the Balk [...]

    5. I really enjoyed the whole story line to this book. Anna already works for the police but in Finland. This doesn’t go down to well with the police in her hometown village when her bag gets stolen and the thief turning up dead. They don’t seem to want to investigate things any further and only do the bare minimum to try and keep her happy. Obviously Anna’s policing instincts kick in and she starts to delve into things herself which has her questioning her own fathers death.Her father was al [...]

    6. All of my reviews can be found on novelgossipI’m so excited to be one of the stops today for the blog tour for The Exiled. This is the third book in a series that follows Anna Fekete and my first experience with anything written by Kati Hiekkapelto. I don’t believe that you have to read the series in order to keep up, I never felt like I was missing anything, the book stands very well on it’s own. Anna goes back home for holiday to visit her family and old friends and shortly after she arr [...]

    7. I’d forgotten how much I really love Finland’s Kati Hiekkapelto series featuring the complex Anna Fekete. The Exiled follows on from The Defenceless, which was my introduction to Anna.Anna is an enigma. Flawed and fascinating. We got to understand her a little in The Exiled. She’s tough and something of a loner. Anna emigrated as a child from the former Yugoslavia to Finland. Following her father’s footsteps, she joined the police force. In The Defenceless, we saw how her sense of identi [...]

    8. In case you don’t know already, I’m a big fan of crime fiction, and most especially if its Scandinavian in origin. Needless to say I jumped at the chance to be a part of the Finnish Invasion blog tours because let’s face it, its my thing!The Exiled is the 3rd book in the Anna Fekete series. I had started reading The Defenceless before this one but for one reason or another I haven’t gotten back to reading it since. However, not reading the previous books didn’t hinder my reading of The [...]

    9. First of all, this one is really Anna Fekete 2.5 rather than 3.0 in the series; it can be read as a stand-alone. The only Finnish connection consists of a couple of email exchanges with colleagues back home, as well as a few vague musings on her part about the differences between Finnish and Balkan culture. For those who have read the first two books, wondering what to expect, here's a general idea, with as few (what I consider) spoilers as possible . . . No sooner has Anna arrived in Serbia whe [...]

    10. Trigger warnings: murder, ethnic slurs (a lot of the book revolves around the Romani community), cheating, kidnapping, death of a parent (in the past), refugee experiences. 3.5 stars. I don't think I've ever read anything translated from Finnish before, and I certainly didn't expect it to be set in Serbia, with large chunks of the conversation happening in Hungarian, and with a lot of the story involving refugee and Romani characters. There were things that I liked about this - the friendships, [...]

    11. Kati Hiekkapellon kolmas dekkari on paras. Jopa kirjan kansikuva on hieno, no nimestä en niin pitänyt. Parempi olisi ollut Tiszankukka, sillä se kuvaa sudenkorentomaisia hyönteisiä, joita kirjan kansikuvassa on. Suomalainen rikospoliisi Anna Fekete on lomalla Serbiassa, entisessä kotimaassaan, josta hän pakeni pienenä äitinsä ja veljensä kanssa Suomeen. Äiti on palannut kotimaahan takaisin ja velikin viihtyy siellä. Anna käy lomalla kotikylässään. Tällä lomareissulla hän syve [...]

    12. I won this novel in a giveaway in 2016. It is the last of five giveaway wins from last year. I have finally gotten it read while it's still Women in Translation (WIT) month. This is the first novel I've read in this series, but my perception is that Anna Fekete is not a noir detective. I would call this noir lite, and I definitely prefer that. I hate finishing a book feeling totally disgusted as happens with most noir.The parallel between Romani in Serbia and African Americans in the United St [...]

    13. The Exiled sees the return of Anna Fekete (first encountered in The Hummingbird and then The Defenceless). Ordinarily Anna is found in Finland where she is a member of the police force, however, in The Exiled Anna has returned to her homeland in the Balkans to enjoy a summer holiday in the company of her family.Soon after her arrival, Anna is attending a party in the town square of her hometown and her purse and passport are stolen. But Anna has realised something is amiss and gives chase. Her p [...]

    14. When Anna Fekete returns to the town where she was born to spend the summer with her family she has plans for nothing more than a bit of relaxation; some gentle exercise, to bit of swimming in the local river and to catch up with old friends. When her handbag is stolen while on a night out, her passport and credit card taken along with it, Anna’s dreams of a peaceful holiday are shattered. The police soon recover her bag but with one small and one rather large issue. Her passport and credit ca [...]

    15. I'm grateful to Orenda for a review copy of the book.As readers of Anna's earlier adventures will know Inspector Fekete is a Finnish citizen, but she's from Serbia, originally, a refugee from the civil war that broke up Yugoslavia. And in this book, she's home for a holiday. (Needless to say, things don't go smoothly). To add a wrinkle to things, Anna is ethnically Hungarian - that's her mother tongue - and the book makes passing references to the use of Hungarian rather than Serbian at times. S [...]

    16. This is the first crime novel from Kati Hiekkapelto I have read, but The Exiled is the third in the series featuring Anna Fekete and I have become an instant fan of Kati’s writing. Normally the stories are set in Finland but with The Exiled is set in the Balkans.Anna Fekete is visiting her mother in Serbia to the village of Anna’s birth, she is on holiday, but something happens to Anna that will change her holiday plans. Anna has her handbag stolen but the culprit who stole her handbag is fo [...]

    17. In this third instalment in Kati Hiekkapelto's Anna Fekete series, which has won and been shortlisted for awards in multiple countries and languages, her Finnish detective is dragged into a case while on vacation. Fekete has returned to her childhood home of Kanizsa, a Serbian village near the Hungarian border. Her relaxing summer break is torn asunder when her bag is snatched, only for the thief to turn up dead on the banks of the river soon after. But what happened to the little gypsy girl who [...]

    18. Kati Hiekkapelto has used the wave of refugees to create a thrilling story with Anna Fekete, who has her purse stolen when she takes a vacation to her birthplace in the Balkan village she was born in. She is pulled into the investigation when the thief is murdered and his sister is found out. Anna makes many new friends during the process. I would recommend this book for everyone to read.

    19. Anne Fekete a Finnish police investigator within the violent crimes unit, returns to her mother’s Balkan village of Kanizsa, for a summer holiday and hopefully a break from crime. On her first night there, she attends a wine festival with friends Tibor, Nora and Erno. Whilst drinking wine and taking selfies, they are easily distracted and Anna’s handbag is stolen. Aware that her credit cards and passport have possibly been stolen to sell, Anna finds herself the victim of a crime for once. He [...]

    20. Having waxed lyrical about the previous book The Defenceless from edgy Finnish writer, Kati Hiekkapelto, it was great to dive into this one, again featuring Hungarian detective Anna Fekete. I am rather partial to books where the main protagonist is removed from their normal stomping ground, and how the vacations they take are never the most relaxing of affairs. The Exiled fits the bill perfectly…Anna Fekete is a prickly and forthright woman, with a somewhat abrasive manner that exasperates a [...]

    21. Thriller set in Kanizsa, SERBIA.The Exiled in the third book in the Anna Fekete series. The first two, The Hummingbird and The Defenceless, are firmly set in Finland. The Exiled is equally firmly set in Serbia.Anna is a detective with the Finnish police force. She returns home for the summer to visit her mother in Kanizsa, a town on the Serbian-Hungarian border. Kanizsa is where she was born and brought up. One bank of the River Tisza that flows alongside the town is in Serbia, the other bank is [...]

    22. Kati Hiekkapelto has brought alive a fantastic character in protagonist Anne Fekete.  I love her single-minded, tunnel vision of herself - crime fighting police officer, workaholic, because if she is that person, she doesn't need to worry about a personal life and finding out who she really is.  Only, in the case she finds herself embroiled when she takes a trip back 'home' she is forced to face up to some reality about her past.  Full of twists and turns and a plethora of unreliable and corr [...]

    23. The Exiled is the third book in the Anna Fekete series, but I can genuinely say that if it's read as a stand alone, it wouldn't affect your reading experience. The story follows Anna, who is supposed to be on holiday in her home town but she gets drawn into investigating the death of the thief who stole her handbag when she thinks that it is not being looked into properly by the local police force. I really liked Anna and I felt that this story was as much about her and her growth as the murder [...]

    24. The Exiled is actually book 3 in the Anna Fekete series however I didn’t this realise this when I started the book and it in no way affected my enjoyment of this instalment.Anna is in the police force in Finland but is on holiday in her homeland of Kanizsa, in Serbia on the Hungarian border. Her relaxation is somewhat hampered when her bag is stolen whilst she’s enjoying a local wine festival with friends. The bag is then found on the shore of the Tisza river alongside the body of a young ma [...]

    25. I have liked both of Kati Heikkapelto's previous two books and I liked this. Some have been disappointed by the change in locale from Finland to Serbia but not I. Much of my interest in mystery novels is the travelogue factor and it was it was not a letdown to experience the Hungarian-Serbian world. The protagonist, Anna, remains an interesting character and continues to grow, both in herself and in our understanding of her. Ms Heikkapelto is a very good writer. She has an excellent sense of des [...]

    26. It was strange and yet fascinating to see Anna back 'home', or rather back in Serbia, although she no longer feels 100% part of it. The backdrop was impeccably done, loved all the little observations of cultural differences. The investigation itself was perhaps slightly underwhelming, but lots of interesting characters along the way, and with the refugee crisis always present (and everyone having different views on it).

    27. Pidin kirjan näkökulmasta, että tarina vietiin pois tutuista kuvioista. Aion lukea myös kirjailijan aiemmat kirjat.

    28. Dekkari entisen Jugoslavian elämästä, entisestä sodasta, nykyisestä maailmanpoliittisesta tilanteesta, uusista pakolaisvirroista, romanien asemasta. Hienoa miljöökuvausta hyvässä ja pahassa.
