Helena Halme Author


Helena grew up in central Finland, and moved to the UK via Stockhilm. She's worked as a BBC journalist, a bookseller and a company director.

As well as politics, finance and languages, Helena has studied creative writing and has published three novels, The Englishman, Coffee and Vodka, and The Red King of Helsinki. Helena's next novel, The Navy Wife, a sequel to her Nordic tale of long-distance love, The Englishman, is now out.

Helena lives in North London and loves Nordic Noir and thinks in another life she might have been a blonde Birgitte Nyborg from Borgen...
