Elina Hirvonen interviewed in ETC Tidningen (Sweden) on publication of her novel WHEN TIME RUNS OUT (Kun aika loppuu, WSOY 2015) in Swedish:

"But now I feel that many things are going in the right direction. Where national parliaments fail, private companies and cities start to develop their own climate-savvy alternatives. This gives me hope, and basically I'm an optimist. I strongly believe that humanity as a collective can come to great solutions together".
