The book tells of a man called Gunnar Huttunen. He goes to a village, to restore a mill. To the villagers, he seems a little odd. And even more so when he starts howling at nights..
It´s a few years from when I read this book, originally titled in Finnish Ulvova Mylläri so I have not rated it here. I am quite sure I would have give it a 4 or 5 star rating if I read it again, because I remember that the book really made me laugh. Hopefully it isn´t just something that makes Finnish people laugh. This author is one of the best known Finnish authors in Finland.
