Inge and Karen are friends. Both are models from Finland making their way in New York. But when Karen disappears, Inge's search for her friend through the studios, bars and parties of New York, leads her not only to some surprising conclusions about Karen, but also about herself.
  • Onnell
The ostensible focus of Hiag Akmakjian's brooding novel is the obsessive concern of a young Finnish-American photographer, Inge, for her friend Karen, a fellow Finn and one of New York's hottest models. As Inge relates in this first-person narrative, Karen has disappeared, bare months after coming to America and making a big splash with a spectacular nude shot. Inge alone, it seems, cares that Karen may have been abducted and made to disappear into some darkened corner of the sexual world. But the characters of Inge and Karen conflate from page one, and the nagging feeling grows, page after page, that Karen's disappearance is also Inge's disappearance. It turns out to be so, not literally, but in the sense that Inge's life fades into a society dominated by thinly disguised sexual commerce lacking true human connection. She is an amazing woman, this Inge, a Finn whose English is better than that of most Americans, an "arctically pure" beauty who is also an astute observer of visual art and, indeed, of experience itself. It is hard to believe that a 26-year-old for whom English is a second language could write the following description of a misty winter's day near the East River, but you don't mind, because the words are so perfectly apt for their subject: "A freighter was riding downstream through the brown and violet river murk, sombrely lugging cargo to the Atlantic and the open sea.... Seagulls, sounding like rusty hinges in the sky, soared upward toward the wettish tumbling snow, following the old boat at a distance, the flakes falling faster and finally obliterating the departing tub. In the falling-snow silence there was no longer a horizon, only intermediate middle distance -- space destroyed." For all her power to see and to describe such images, Inge cannot see her own, self-eradicating absorption into a predatory world. This, author Akmakjian leaves to the reader.

A very sharp wit and a realistic approach to life in New York. It is about a Finnish model and her obsession with the disappearance of a friend. Some readers might be lost because the book talks about Finns and Finnish language a lot. I was impressed by the writer's knowledge on Finns although she is not of Finnish origin (her statements are very true!).The book starts off fast, so much that I was not able to drop it for a second, but halfway through, it became all the same. A pity, but still worth a shot for its good sarcastic humour.
