Hello
I am trying to find out if this book is translated to English og Swedish;
Manuo Niskanen; Niilo Oravainen - Lapin kuningas.
Niilo Oravainen was my forefather 16 generations back and I would love to read this book, but unfortunately, I don't read Finnish.
Therefore I am trying to find out if the book has been translated to Swedish or English?

Mauno Niskanen lives in Jyväskylä and visits Lappland and is interested about Lappish items. This book is not translated into English, it's only in Finnish.
Niskanen writes in this novel book that Oravainen real mother was a Sami woman from Suikki family in Pakasaivo, Muonio.

You can read about him in Swedish here:
Några konungens fogdar under 1500-talet / Nordlander, Johan.
Norrländska samlingar ; Häftet 12 (III:2).Julkaisutiedot: Stockholm : C .E. Fritzes, 1933
There is also the family book about Oravainen family-tree:
Lapinvouti Niilo Oravaisen jälkeläiset : sukututkimus / Leinonen, Margit. - Kemi : M. Leinonen, 2013. - 505, 324 s.
Only in Finnish.
