Something that might be even better is an international money order.
I'm sure there's also a fee for changing US dollars in cash to Finnish
money (my ignorance shows, I have no idea what the monetary unit of
Finland is -- herrings?). While there's a fee for purchasing an
international money order, it's at least borne by the purchaser rather
than the receiver, and the receiver gets the local equivalent of the
order as determined by the current exchange rate.
