Bad news: the ability to change languages by installing language packs in Windows 7 is not available in the Home Premium edition. From the relevant article on Windows 7 Center: "This feature is only available in Windows 7 Enterprise and Ultimate."

You could do an Anytime Upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate and then change the language to English. Not sure if Anytime Upgrade is available in Finland.

You could also try borrowing Windows 7 Home Premium English media and using your product key.
