What's that one called in English? The only Thursday books I know of are

Guilty Bystander (1947) Fatal Step (1948) Uneasy Street (1948) Calamity Fair (1950) Murder Charge (1950) Shoot To Kill (1951)

I'd love it if there was another one out there, but I suspect "Wrong Mr. Blue" is just the Finnish title. Darn!

And someone was lamenting the fact those books are hard to find. Yeah, it would be great if they were available again. Last reprints I heard of were maybe ten or more years ago by a British press, and they reprinted the same ones I'd read. Maybe iBooks or Stuart Kaminsky's Mystery Vault, both of whom seem to be digging into the more recent past for their catalogues, will cast their eyes a bit further back.
