First dry brush the suede and vacuum the surface, use an upholstery
Hang the jacket in a sunny and airy location for a few days.
Find a box or bag large enough for the garment and place the garment in
with a few broken pieces of charcoal (don't use fast-light or other
modified charcoal, only pure burned wood chunks) You can also use
activated charcoal found in aquarium shops, sold as filter medium.
Make certain to seal the charcoal in a cloth or paper bag so it won't
smudge your garment.
Seal the container and place in an out of the way location for a week or
so. Check the garment for smell, and repeat the process as necessary
(use fresh charcoal).
You may want to remove the lining if you can (sometimes they zip out or
unbutton) and have that dry cleaned separately. You may alternately try
suface cleaning the fur fabric, use a protective layer between the
lining and the suede interior.
Tobacco smoke is very sticky, best of luck!

I agree that putting a suede jacket in the sun for an extended period
of time may damage it. Sunshine is good at breaking down aromatic
compounds. I got a good laugh at your second statement, thinking
about a suede jacket laying out in the sun like a beached whale.
