You Won't Let Me Finnish
By Joan Fleming
Twice CWA Gold Dagger award-winner
When Hector, which proves to be his name, comes to Helsinki, Finland, he's lost an ear and his memory. He turns up at the door of the embassy with a satchel full of money. The Ambassador, his secretary, a girl called Dolly Darling and an old man called Uncle Vanya try to put him together again, and in doing so find themselves in the centre of a strange adventure.
