We are pleased to announce the publication of The Helsinki Chronicles, recounting some exploits of the world's most brilliant and glamorous detective and her Wonder Dog.

The Notes by Olen Sukkela Poika provide extensive commentary, with web addresses when available, on the history, arts, and major sites of contemporary Helsinki as narrated in the Prologue and Adventures (“The Nordenskiöld Map,” “The Suomalainen Sauna,” “The Disappearance of Mr. P.,” “The Ceremonial Hall,” “The Duplicitous Dealer,” and “The Cathedral Crypt”). The ten appendixes offer specialized information on a wide range of topics, including the Finnish national anthem and a complete conjugation of “koira,” and the Bibliography supplies titles for additional study of this beautiful Nordic capital. The front cover simultaneously represents the flags of Finland and Sweden, and the back cover is distinguished by its full-color representation of the seal of the City of Helsinki.

A source of entertainment and information as well as the ideal gift, this travel guide could not have been completed without the assistance of many friends in Finland and here in the United States during its four years of preparation.
