Miina Supinen (b. 1976 in Helsinki) is often described as an â€˜unwilling humouristâ€™. Her debut novel, Liha tottelee kuria (â€˜Jelly Controlâ€™), is a comedy about a totally dysfunctional family and takes things right up to the limit of painful humour. In SÃ¤de (â€˜Ray Girlâ€™), her latest story about a love triangle, science meets the occult, and love and sex meet at the site of an archaeological dig in Finland.
Prior to her career as a writer, Supinen studied journalism at university and worked at the Finnish news agency. Besides fiction, she also writes a column for Image, a Finnish lifestyle magazine.
