In Erno Paasilinna's book, the name of Pekurinen's executioner is Otto Asiainen. Corporal Asiainen was a 21-year-old carpenter from Lestijärvi. He agreed to shoot Pekurinen after the first candidates to carry out the task, sergeant Joonas Kivelä and private Kaarlo Kinnunen had declined captain Pentti Valkonen's request.

Why did Capt. Valkonen not do it himself? What a coward! Yet he received the highest Finnish military honor for "Knight of Mannermeim Cross". Some hero! His descendants have to be ashamed.
