The Booker Prize 2023 has been awarded to Irish writer Paul Lynch for his novel "Prophet Song" 

The Booker Prize 2023 has been awarded to Irish writer Paul Lynch for his anti-utopian novel Prophet Song, which depicts Ireland under a totalitarian regime.

Set in Dublin, the novel centres on the story of Ailish Stack, a researcher and mother of four children, who tries to save her family in the "new world" and the impending fascism that is destroying established democratic norms.

As the writer himself told the BBC Radio 4 programme in an interview on the eve of the award, Ireland's plunge into the abyss of totalitarianism is "already happening".

"This novel is modelling events that have already happened in the past, that are happening now and will happen in the future," he noted, saying his challenge was to listen to what is happening and draw informed conclusions.


The book will be published in Russian in the coming year. Stay tuned for more information!

New Tintin release! In pre-release sale


Tintin in the Land of the Soviets (French: Tintin au pays des Soviets) is the first volume of The Adventures of Tintin, the comics series by Belgian cartoonist Hergé. Commissioned by the conservative Belgian newspaper Le Vingtième Siècle as anti-communist satire for its children's supplement Le Petit Vingtième, it was serialised weekly from January 1929 to May 1930 before being published in a collected volume by Éditions du Petit Vingtième in 1930.

The story tells of young Belgian reporter Tintin and his dog Snowy, who are sent to the Soviet Union to report on the policies of Joseph Stalin's Bolshevik government. Tintin's intent to expose the regime's secrets prompts agents from the Soviet secret police, the OGPU, to hunt him down with the intent to kill.

Posti apologizes for the delay in the delivery of printed mail – a malfunction in the sorting machine at the Helsinki postal center has caused delays in the area


There is a disruption in Helsinki postal center’s technology related to the sorting of printed mail, i.e. letters and magazines. The disruption is limited to certain postal code areas in Helsinki. Most of the causes have been fixed, but some are still being corrected.

“We apologize for any inconvenience caused to our customers. This persistent disruption concerns deliveries that do not pass through our mechanical sorting system normally, but whose digital address information we need to verify before they are delivered to the recipients by our deliverers,” says Sami Reponen, Posti’s Director of Postal Services Production.

Local delays in other areas of the country

There have been local delays in the delivery of letters, magazines and advertisements elsewhere in the country in recent months, but the situation has improved. These delays were caused by several major changes in the delivery schedule and mail sorting technology.

Sami Reponen emphasizes that, with the changes made, Posti wants to ensure that mail gets delivered in the future, even though the volume of printed mail is decreasing dramatically.

“These difficulties related to the change are unfortunate for everyone, but once the changes are implemented, we will be able to deliver shipments to mail slots and boxes in the coming years as well. Finns value deliveries made directly to their homes alongside digital services.”

The decrease in the volume of printed mail is due to changes in customer needs. Since the volume of mail also varies according to the needs of the sender, it requires Posti to adopt different delivery models.

“We have made big, simultaneous changes to the delivery schedule of printed deliveries and in sorting technology prior to delivery. There were unexpected complications in the coordination of the changes being made, which unfortunately were visible to our customers as delays,” says Reponen.

These incidents do not affect newspapers or parcels delivered by Posti.

“The workforce shortage in newspaper deliveries has eased and we can deliver newspapers normally in the morning.The popularity of e-commerce and the volume of parcels have increased during the COVID-19 pandemic, which means that our Parcel Lockers can sometimes be full. In such cases, the parcels have to be directed to somewhere other than the nearest locker, which might be inconvenient to customers. Less than 5% of the e-commerce parcels we delivered last week were delivered more than half a kilometer from the original pickup location,” says Reponen.
