Is your Emacs≤24? Emacs (surprisingly) only gained a facility for
alphabetic (locale-sensitive) sorting with ver. 25. Before that, we will
resort to using «string-lessp», which only sorts lexicographically (i.e,
based on the binary character value, which means it is always
case-sensitive on Unicode systems).

If you are using GNU Emacs≥25, what locale are you using? FI_fi and most
of the other western locales are based on ISO-14651, so you should
always get case-*in*sensitive orderings, which is what I get with Emacs
26.1. So, evaluating the following should all yield «t»:

    (string-collate-lessp "a" "x" "de_DE.utf-8" nil)
    (string-collate-lessp "a" "X" "de_DE.utf-8" t)
    (string-collate-lessp "a" "x" "fi_FI.utf-8" nil)
    (string-collate-lessp "a" "X" "fi_FI.utf-8" t)
