Moona Kinnunen is waving a fan to cool herself down. It is 28 degrees Celsius outside on Fleminginkatu in Helsinki; inside the 26 square metre studio flat, the temperature is 10 degrees higher. Roughly two dozen prospective tenants have crammed into the flat, and as soon as some leave others enter. Already a resident of Helsinki, Kinnunen is here to help her friend Joni Tilli find a flat in the Finnish capital.

“The market seems to be in a frenzy. I'll start studying physics at the University of Helsinki in the autumn, so I have to find a flat,” says Tilli.
