Aino Nykopp-Koski is a Finnish serial killer. She worked as a nurse and was found guilty of killing five patients and the attempted murder of five more. No motive was established for the murders.[1]


Between 2004 and 2009 Nykopp-Koski worked at a range of hospitals, care homes and patients' homes. There she killed five elderly patients using sedatives and opiates. She was apprehended in March 2009.[1]
Nykopp-Koski was tried in Helsinki District Court in December 2010 and pleaded not-guilty, though the court convicted her. She was sentenced to life in prison (minimum of 12 years before likely pardon). Despite having a personality disorder she was deemed culpable for her actions.[1] The sentence was upheld by Helsinki Court of Appeals in March 2012. [2] Supreme Court of Finland dismissed her leave to appeal in November 2012. [3]

Pitäis olla kuolemanrangaistus meilläkin.
Elinkautinenkin natsais. Ja siis ihan oikea elinkautinen, eikä mikää muutama pari vuotta jossai vitun avovankilassa.

Mut jos tän muijan uhrit halusi kuolla nii ei siinä sitten mitään väärää omasta mielestäni ollut.

Maybe its a good thing that she's dead. Finland dished out a life sentence, but... would have done minimum of 12 years before likely pardon (what a slap in the face for the families of victims) but I digress, the witch is dead.
