    Toivo Koljonen

    High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Toivo Harald "Kirves" Koljonen (1912-1943) was the last Finn executed for a civilian crime. He was executed by firing squad for a sextuple murder. Koljonen was born 1912 in Lahti, Finland. He had been sentenced to prison and had been incarcerated at Riihimäki prison, where he had been moved to Huittinen auxiliary prison. He escaped from prison in 1943 and attempted to hide from the searchers. He found a nearby farmhouse, where a family of six - mother, grandparents and three children - lived; the father had been conscripted into the army. Koljonen first hid in the stable, where he killed a daughter of the family with an axe. He then broke in the living quarters, where he killed the other five people with the same axe (kirves in Finnish language, hence the nickname). According to the law in force during the war, Koljonen was sentenced to death for the six murders. He was shot together with convicted Soviet infiltrators at Kärsämäki quarry, near Turku 1943.
