Aha... He is from Ruokolahti, Finland.

My wife read it to me. She is from Estonia but speaks fluent Finish.

You can visit Sami's personal website to learn more about him. It tells where he went to school and where he worked but not what town he is from.

Hello Paul,
I've spent some 8 years in the capital city, Helsinki, but I was born in a town called "Ruokolahti" about 200 miles north east of Helsinki. It's very near the Russian border, i.e., middle of nowhere.
Lahti, on the other hand, is straight north of Helsinki and often called the "Chicago of Finland".
