Re: Finnish Literature
A belated thanks to Eric for mentioning the North Wind site.
Of the relatively few books from Finland I've read all but two were originally in Swedish. I'm curious whether this reflects a bias in translation or whether it's simply chance that I happened upon the books I did. (The two from Finnish were Dark Paradise by Liksom, which I liked very much, and Fool's Paradise by Konkka, which was the first book I've given up on halfway through since attempting to read James Herbert.)
