The Xenophobe's Guide to the Finns

Extremely funny, as well as spot-on.

I think you really can understand some of the Finnish character from reading this book. If you have ever met a Finn, you will be very amused as well.

Disclaimer: I am married to a Finnish woman, spend time in Finland on both social visits as well as professionally, as I currently work for a Finnish company. In fact, this review is written in Helsingfors.
