Kerttu and Laila were also close.

Laila doesn't have any children.

- Oh yeah?

That's probably

why she spoiled Kerttu.

They traveled together and so on.

Hi. I just told Vares

about your trips with Kerttu.

You two know each other already.

- Hi.

This is my husband Arto Ronimus.

He's a professor of philosophy at

the university. - Nice to meet you.


It was really hard on Arto.

He had to take leave from work

after Kerttu died. - Please...

You're so sensitive.

Kerttu was one of my dearest students.

She was very emotionally intelligent.

I had vacation days left, so...

This year has been torture for us.

But Kerttu's death has made us closer.

Maybe it was her gift to us.

Which one of you was last

to see her alive? - I was.

She was having breakfast

when I left for work.

Going to study at home.

Nothing special planned.

She might have gone outside.

She liked to run.

Did she leave a notebook or a diary?

- She didn't keep a diary.

The police took her

calendar and computer, -

but they didn't find anything.

Her cell phone is still missing.

It might be a sign that -

she knew her killer.

The killer might have taken her phone.

There might have been evidence -

of a relationship between the two.

An intimate relationship.

- What?


- Yes.

Can I see Kerttu's room?

- Sure. I'll show it to you.

It's upstairs.

This way.

Photos of her childhood.

Who's that other girl?

- Pirkko, her best friend.

They were like sisters.

She lived just down the road.

Could I see the place where she died?

Paavo, could you...

- Sure.

Thank you.

Mr. Vares, I don't mean to insult you, -

but are you a real professional?

If I wasn't, I wouldn't

have taken this case.

The last thing we want

is some greedy amateur -

opening up old wounds.
