Kristina Malmio is the new member of the Editorial Board of Books from Finland. She replaces Jarmo Papinniemi, who died last October. Kristina is a literary scholar and associate professor at Helsinki University as well as a critic who writes in both Swedish and Finnish. Her doctoral thesis (Department of Nordic Literature, University of Helsinki, 2005) examined metafictive features in Finnish and Finland-Swedish popular literature in the 1910s and 1920s. She has been a member of the Nordic Council literary prize jury since 2006.

Kristina is particularly fond of new Finnish poetry, good coffee and astanga yoga.
