101 Very Finnish Problems provides you with priceless insights into the everyday trials and tribulations of life in super Suomi. After reading this book, you’ll be far better equipped to deal with all that Finland can throw at you, from sauna spankings to drunken Santas.

You will understand very Finnish problems like these:

> When you have to explain for the 100th time that Moomin isn’t a hippo.
> When everybody else’s name is like something from The Lord of the Rings.
> When the weather forecast for Midsummer matches that for Christmas.
> When there’s over 60 words for “snow”, but not one for “please”.
> When alcohol is a universal permission to go totally insane.
> When you realise you’re only one country away from North Korea.
> When you forget that summer cottage is another word for labour camp.
> When you have to share the sauna with a masochist.
> When people don’t get your sarcasm.

"101 Very Finnish Problems is a fantastically funny book. I guarded it with my life – but then I did read it on my smartphone. My 102nd very Finnish problem was that it ended too soon." – André Wickström, comedian.

"This is hilarious. My Finnish mother was enchanted with this and the companion volume. She has told me several times how accurate many of the observations are (rare praise indeed!) and, knowing several Finns, I recognise many of the traits described myself. The books are written with fondness for the nation and its people, not to poke fun at them." - Goodreads Review.
