Insurance mathematician Henri Koskinen has finally restored order both to his life and to YouMeFun, the adventure park he now owns, when a man from the past appears and turns everything upside down again. More problems arise when the parks equipment supplier is taken over by a shady trio, with confusing demands. Why wont Toy of Finland Ltd sell the new Moose Chute to Henri when he needs it as the parks main attraction?

Meanwhile, Henris relationship with artist Laura has reached breaking point, and, in order to survive this new chaotic world, he must push every calculation to its limits, before its too late

Absurdly funny, heart-stoppingly poignant and full of nail-biting suspense, The Moose Paradox is the second instalment in the critically acclaimed, pitch-perfect Rabbit Factor Trilogy and things are messier than ever

Praise for The Rabbit Factor Trilogy

**Shortlisted for the CWA Crime in Translation Dagger**
**Shortlisted for the Last Laugh Award**

The antic novels of Antti Tuomainen prove that comedy is not lost in translation Tuomainen, like Carl Hiaasen before him, has the knack of combining slapstick with genuine emotion The Times

A thriller with black comedy worthy of Nabokov Telegraph Book of the Year

'The funniest writer in Europe, and one of the very finest. There is a beautiful rhythm and poetry to the prose original and brilliant story-telling' Helen FitzGerald

British readers might think they know what to expect from Nordic noir: a tortured detective, a bleak setting, a brutal crime that shakes a small community. Finnish crime novelist Tuomainen turns all of this on its head The ear of a giant plastic rabbit becomes a key weapon. It only gets darker and funnier Guardian

'Antti Tuomainen turns the clichd idea of dour, humourless Scandi noir upside down with The Rabbit Factor. Dark, gripping and hilarious Tuomainen is the Carl Hiaasen of the fjords' Martyn Waites

'The Rabbit Factor is a triumph, a joyous, feel-good antidote to troubled times' Kevin Wignall

Finland's greatest export M.J. Arlidge

The Rabbit Factor is an astounding read. It has the suspenseful twists of a thriller, the laugh-out-loud moments of a comedy and a tragic dimension that brings a tear to the eye Crime Fiction Lover

'You dont expect to laugh when youre reading about terrible crimes, but thats what youll do when you pick up one of Tuomainens decidedly quirky thrillers' New York Times

Tuomainen is the funniest writer in Europe The Times

Right up there with the best Times Literary Supplement

Tuomainen continues to carve out his own niche in the chilly tundras of northern Daily Express

Tremendous fun: disorderly and uncontrollable readers of this book are guaranteed enjoyment Caf Thinking
