I wish I could help you Rafael but I don't recall reading a work of historical fiction about Finland even though I would love to read one.
It may take a little time but some one else should be able to help you soon.

Paula S (paula_s) | 2 comments I found a list at Stockholm city library that might be helpful:
Finland; Historical Fiction. I just searched Goodreads using the Swedish name and looked at all editions to find an English translation.

Ex. Under the North Star (Under the North Star, #1) by Väinö Linna , White Hunger by Aki Ollikainen , The Midwife by Katja Kettu

My hope is harder to achieve. I would be happy to find them translated to portuguese.
