Business Diary: Finland's angry birds to take flight

Bless. So proud is Finland of one of its biggest export successes, its flag-carrying airline is holding a high-altitude event to celebrate. Finland's Rovio is the company behind Angry Birds, the must-have game for smartphones and tablet computers. Now Finnair is flying a carefully selected group of skilled Angry Birds players to Asia and back so that it can organise a tournament of the gamers at a height of 10km. It's probably best not to be on the flight if you value peace and quiet.

New Finnish Grammar, By Diego Marani, trans. Judith Landry

The title is odd, the cover is grey and the author is a besuited Eurocrat. But beneath these unflamboyant exteriors lie a colourful story. It has taken 10 years, the dedication of a small UK publisher and a perfect-pitch translation to deliver Diego Marani's first novel in English. When it came out in Italian, reviewers called it a masterpiece and it won several prizes. Since then Marani has written five more novels and become a Euro-celebrity for inventing a mock language called "Europanto" – a tossed salad of every European language without rules or grammar.

The heat is on for Finnish art festival

It's not often that an art installation sets your heart race racing and gets you hot and bothered. But that's something that residents of the Finnish city of Turku are going to have to get used to this summer with the arrival of SaunaLab, four genuine working saunas that also happen to be installation pieces. Dotted around the city and open to the public throughout the summer, the artist-designed saunas were commissioned as part of Turku's tenure as European Capital of Culture 2011 and are intended to update and re-imagine traditional Nordic sauna culture while presenting art to the public in an innovative and unusual way.

Eurosceptic party's election upset throws doubt on economic bailouts

Finnish voters dealt a blow to EU plans to rescue Portugal and other debt-ridden economies, ousting the pro-bailout government and giving a boost to a eurosceptic nationalist party in the country's parliamentary elections yesterday. With all votes counted, Finland's anti-euro True Finns party increased its showing from six to 39 seats, the strongest gains of any party. The result put the anti-immigration party in third place behind the winner, the centre-right National Coalition Party (NCP), which won 44 seats in Finland's 200-member parliament. The opposition Social Democrats won 42 seats.
