The Howling Miller (Finnish: Ulvova mylläri) is a 1981 novel by the Finnish author Arto Paasilinna. The main character of the novel is the howling miller, who sometimes acts strangely but is otherwise a goodhearted hardworking honest man. He sometimes keeps the villagers up all night by howling and getting all the dogs in the village worked up to howl with him. Finally the villagers decide that the miller has to be committed into a mental hospital, where the hero does not have to spend too much time until he escapes with the help of his only sane roommate. The miller takes to the woods near his home but there he is constantly harassed by the chief of the police with his posse.
The book has been translated into several languages. It was adapted into a feature film: a Finnish movie called Ulvova mylläri (1982).
