A “dog-noir detective story” from best-selling author Frida Nilsson.
The police stand powerless. The so-called Terrible Burner is attacking the town, burning buildings down, and everyone is wondering what the pyromaniac’s next target is. At the bakery The Dirty Bun there is worry in the air. The Dirty Bun is owned by the dog Harriet, who unfortunately isn’t much of a baker. One late night, when she’s trying to bake croissants, something goes terribly wrong. The bakery is flooded with dough, and when Harriet manages to get herself out of the bubbling paste, something has gotten stuck to her back. They are wings made of dough! Suddenly the city has its own superhero. Her name is the Russian Kiss.
Frida Nilsson doesn’t ever shy away from difficult themes, and particularly not in this book. With wild imagination and unforgettable characters, Frida Nilsson creates a world where nothing is impossible.
