‘From the Woods’

Finland is a land of endless forests and thousands of lakes. The forest is sacred, but it’s the edge of the civilized area, an unknown and frightening place. The vast wilderness has always been full of strange beings. The Devil might be lurking behind the trees; other creatures are watching from the undergrowth. Which are good and which are bad? And how can you be sure?

Markus weaves these traditional tales from his native Finland with narratives from his own life. The result is a string of stories about love, about death, and about dreaming, told in Markus’ down-to-earth and dynamic style. He combines dark Finnish humour with beautiful imagery and a gentle finger on the pulse of the human condition.
