The Man Who Died follows a mushroom entrepreneur named Jaako Kaunismaa. He is in the prime of his life and only thirty-seven years old when his doctor tells him that he is dying. The cause turns out to be a prolonged exposure to toxins because someone has been slowly poisoning him for years. Jaako is determined to find out who wants him dead and embarks on a journey to learn their identity, a trip filled with unusual characters, bizarre situations and unexpected twists.

Antti is also the author of The Rabbit Factor which Steve Carrell optioned for film. Insurance mathematician Henri Koskinen has figured out a perfect life by doing the math and calculating it down to the last decimal. However, his calculations are thrown a curveball when he loses his job and inherits an adventure park, employees and financial problems included, from his brother. Turns out his brother took some loans from some bad people who will go far to collect their debts. While that is enough of a headache, there is also Laura whose joie de vivre and erratic lifestyle that bewilders him. Between his relationship with Laura and the criminals after him, Henri is faced with situations that can’t be solved on spreadsheets.
