NORTH COUNTRY 1991


I suppose this photo exhibits one of my qualifications for commenting on Scandinavian crime books as we find ourselves waiting for a train somewhere north of Helsinki in 1991.
I felt like Napoleon on the retreat from Moscow, February is not the best month for holidays in Finland if you want warm weather.

I bet it was on time too...

Have you read 'The Priest of Evil' by Matti Joensuu, set in Helsinki - mostly in and around the underground system?

Yes of course, to the minute no leaves on line, or wrong sort of snow in Scandinavia.
I have not read Matti Joensu, but will put it on my TBR list. Helsinki is a beautiful city and a Sibelius concert in the Finlandia Hall, and a walk back in the snow to our hotel was one highlight of a lovely holiday.
