The Black Tongue
The Black Tongue | Marko Hautala
2 posts | 1 read | 7 to read
For generations, the urban legend of Granny Hatchet has plagued the quiet residential area of Suvikyl in northern Finland. As the story goes, this immortal killer murders her victims with a hatchet, then buries the hearts in a potato field and eats them after they've rotted black. But not everyone is convinced it is just a story. Maisa Riipinen has returned to her hometown to complete her dissertation on urban folklore at the same time that Samuel Autio has come home to arrange his father's funeral. As hazy, disturbing memories from their pasts meld with strange events in the present, Maisa and Samuel attempt to make sense of the town's fearful obsession with the mythical Granny Hatchet. But if it's only a legend, then why are people still vanishing without a trace? From Finnish author Marko Hautala comes The Black Tongue, a gripping novel about a terrifying story with the power to silence--and the power to make those who dare speak disappear.
