The Dark Side of Helsinki

    The Dark Side of Helsinki / Jarkko Sipilä, translator Christina Saarinen

    Explore the dark chapters of Helsinki's history.

    The city has been occupied, burned, and bombed. Its streets have seen people murdered, swindled, and frozen to death. Author and TV crime reporter Jarkko Sipilä tells the stories of Helsinki's dark side, past and present from the double murder in the nineteenth-century slums of Katajanokka to the homicides of the 21st century, from the opulent meals enjoyed by the upper class in the midst of the famine of 1868 to Finland's first brush with modern terrorism in 1981.

    This book puts one hundred of Helsinki's dark places on the map.
