I’m not making it up: Someone wrote a detective novel set on the mean streets of Koskela, “Helsinki’s Bronx” (Alueuutiset). Check out the description of Sjöman & Co. here.

PS 2015: The Nordic mystery boom finally happened but Hannu Vuorio’s work does not seem to have been translated into English. Yet.
