Jyrki Erra


Jyrki Erra (born 1950) is an architect from Helsinki. He shares an architect office together with his spouse.

Jyrki Erra’s debut novel The Pages (2012) is a thriller of international proportions, delving into the secrets of the past and reminiscent of Umberto Eco’s The Name of the Rose in its atmosphere.
