Definitely a Muscidae, but not your straightforward Graphomyia maculata (unless Finnish are very different coloured from Central European)

The colour is strange indeed, but they are quite variable - so I think it's the male Graphomyia maculata.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
