I’ve heard so much about #paasilinna lately that I just had to give it a try. And what an amazing story! #thehowlingmiller is a combination of political #ibsen and nostalgic #jansson but with an #animalistic and #dark twist. A small rural #finnish town is about to get the visit of a #strange character an #alien What do they do? How do they react? Is this man’s difference just a reminder of their own weaknesses and differences? A great simple and #suspenseful read. #artopaasilinna #oulu #canongate@canongatebooks #animals #kemijoki#suukoski #finnishliterature @idlewildnyc#ulvovamylläri #eccentric #lapland
