Every time a new book of his gets published, it is always a magical moment for Slovak writer JOZEF KARIKA. He has been writing for 20 years, and his books are among the bestsellers not only in Slovakia but also in neighbouring countries.
He achieved great success with the book Trhlina (Rift) about the disappearance of people in the Tribeč mountains, which was later made into a film. His other thrillers are also popular.
The latest of his books is the novel Smršť (whirlwind), published by Ikar. This time Karika was inspired by the phenomenon of the halny wind – a disastrous warm windstorm blowing on the Polish-Slovakian border. The heroes in the book are haunted by a wind demon, from which there is no escape.
