The problem is, the threads are all in their while loops, never checking 
'finish' message.

You need to move the 'receive(bool finish)' checking inside the while 
loop but you must replace it with receiveTimeout with 0 duration, 
otherwise your receive call will block until a message arrives:

   receiveTimeout(0.msecs, (bool finish) {
         if(finish == true){
