My son in Portland mention to me that in the new Bob Dylan biography there is a mention of a Finn being lynched in Minnesota. I did a google search and found the following link:

The man was Olli Kinkkonen who was lynched in September, 1918.

A book titled "Suomalaiset - People of the Marsh" was written by Mark Munger last year in the US. It includes a story of a lynching, based I believe, on a real case.
