Transna­tional Death, a collec­tion of arti­cles edited by Samira Saramo, Eerika Kosk­inen-Koivisto and Hanna Snellman, is a welcome reminder of the many lessons to be learned from the analysis of the more mundane, less spec­tac­ular real­i­ties of death in migra­tion that have in recent years been over­shad­owed by the prolif­er­ating liter­a­ture on border deaths. It is also note­worthy that the book does this across time and space, covering cases from the early twen­tieth century to the present day, from Los Angeles’ Kore­atown to arctic Finland. The breadth and the inter­dis­ci­pli­nary approach of Transna­tional Death count among its unde­ni­able merits with the perspec­tives of ethnol­o­gists, histo­rians and anthro­pol­o­gists neatly dialoguing with each other.
