Piukkanen & Kiho. Piukkanen & Kiho were created by the Finnish authors Armas J. Pullan (Ryhmy & Romppainen) and Mika Waltari (Inspector Palmu) and appeared in Keisarin tekohampaat (1931), Punainen madonna (1932) and Ampukaa pianistia (1932).

Onni Piukkanen and Jussi Kiho are a pair of Finnish soldiers-turned-mercenaries who travel around the world. They try to take over Abyssinia on behalf of an American false teeth manufacturer, who wants to gain the monopoly on false teeth in Abyssinia; they try to subvert the Soviet Union from within; and they fight against gangsters in Chicago.
