Jarkko Sipilä's crime novel out in the US


Just noticed that Jarkko Sipilä, one of the foremost Finnish crime writers (and one of the most hardboiled), has a crime novel out in the US. The book is called Helsinki Homicide: Against the Wall and its original title was Vasten seinää (the English translation is literal). It was published in 2008. The book received the Finnish Whodunnit Society's annual award, Johtolanka (Clue), which must've been the trigger for the American deal.

I'll try to get some more details from Sipilä himself.
In the meantime, have a happy Midsummer's Eve!
Edit: Here's some more info!

Well, if you're into really dark novels with adept psychological twists and full of the unexpected, you should definitely my novel "A Diary of Wasted Years." It's just published by Eloquent Books. Comes to grab you by the throat and certainly worth it. Check it out.
