Finnish Days by Herman Koch is a penetrating novel about mourning, becoming an adult and about what you have to say and what can be kept better.

At parties and during dinners, Herman Koch is often asked with compassionate tone about his "Finnish period". He is also laughing about it himself, and that has everything to do with the unbelievability of his stay in Finland. A tall, clumsy boy of nineteen who chooses to work in a very remote place on the land and in the woods. It may sound romantic, but it wasn't. His mother had died shortly before, and Herman went there to get away from his father and his new girlfriend, and to postpone what he actually already knew.

Forty years later, Koch is back in Finland and finds a collection of poems that explicitly refers to his previous stay. He can no longer finish this period with a joke. He examines his own history, investigates how memories work and how he can tell this story without smearing reality.
