Her debut novel, The Book of Disappearances (2011), was nominated for the literature prize of Helsingin Sanomat.

About Sex and Mathematics is one of the greatest reads of this autumn. [...] It provides a rare reading experience. If you tend to spend your Christmas holidays sitting in a nice chair with a novel, I could not suggest a better book than this.
