Finnish Writers Books and Information

Finnish Writers Books and Information. Finland is a Scandinavian country in the far north of Europe. It is a multilingual country. Most of the more than five million people speak Finnish. Not surprisingly, most of the Finnish authors write in their own language.

In addition, there are two other official languages, Swedish (also called Finland Swedish) the first language of some 200,000 Finns and the Sami (Lapp) language which is the first language for several thousand people.
