Behold the Finnish version. It will soon be translated consecutively into Icelandic, Urdu, Hobbitese, Klingon, a private language spoken by a set of poorly-socialized identical twins living in Kansas, then back into English.

Nice to see the pictures have translated without much difficulty.

Congrats! You are going wide wide world!

I believe Finns are more adventurous concerning art (although I shouldn't judge the Danes by just one review - they are really nice people).

Last time I looked (alas 20 years ago) they had suburbs in Helsinki; I think they have some laws, though: there have to be that many trees between apartment buildings, and there has to be a 1:4 ratio of saunas to people (this one I am not so sure of; I may have made it up, but it is pretty close to reality).

I hope you will be able to go to a book signing in Finland (leave your trunks at home)!

I always thought your art had a very European feeling about it.
As " Kid Shay " said that will translate quite nicely. . . so agree.
