Dipolar-controlled quantum deflagration going over into quantum detonation in the elongated Mn_12 Ac molecular magnet in a strong transverse field has been considered within the full 3d model. It is shown that within the dipolar window around tunneling resonances the deflagration front is non-flat. With increasing bias, dipolar instability makes the front turbulent, while its speed reaches sonic values, that is a signature of detonation.
