Summer vs. Winter Tire Wear

Automotive gurus,

I need your experience and opinion on tire wear of summer vs. winter tires.

So here's what I have:
  1. Continental summers, about 11K km with 5.4mm average on all 4 tires.
  2. Nokian winters, about 17K km with 7.2mm average on all 4 tires.
Both tires if I'm not mistaken were manufactured on the same year. Obviously used in the same car and I believe driven in the same manner, well I suppose, maybe a bit more spirited in summer.

Anyway, I can't understand how my Contis are 2mm lower with less kms on it? Does the hotter tarmac in summer make it worse? Or, is it just Contis are crap vs. Nokians?
