The Forensics Kids of Class 3A is the first of a six-part series of crime novels for children, the main characters of which are two child-detectives named Piia and Mati (a.k.a. Kribu and Krabu). Together, they track down criminals on exciting adventures in several different countries.

Kribu and Krabu are students in class 3A at Copse Secondary School. When their teacher discusses incunabula one day, the children bring in a very old, rare, and expensive Bible from home. Yet one night, the book is stolen from a display in the school library, and the police can’t find any clues at the crime scene. Together with a 12th-grader named Paul, the detective kids take on the case themselves. The trail leads them all the way to Finland, and solving the crime will take a fair amount of wit and ingenuity!
