How are you feeling?

I'm f***ing scared.

Good.

- I don't think she wants to leave.

- I'm sure she does.

This way.

- Here are the terms of your parole.

- Don't lose it.

Alright.

I hope we don't have to see

each other again.

- Take good care of her.

- Yeah.

Hi. I'd like to come see you

with a new case.

She needs

a temporary apartment and -

then a longer-term rental.

She'll go to the unemployment

office and look for a job -

or more likely a school

she can apply to.

She's just been

released from prison -

and we're sorting her things out.

She has

an 8-month-old baby girl -

and we'll need to see -

what kind of

daycare options there are.

The mother

might also need support...

Yeah, we're going in.

We're going in.

Darling.

Are you tired?

Fewer people are worried

about the climate change.

According to a recent survey, -

people are more concerned

about everyday matters.

People are worried

about the economic crisis.

The percentage of severely indebted

households has increased.

Almost 20 percent of households

are considered to be at risk.

- Dad.

- Yes?

Are you going to die at work?

Of course not.

Of course not. Have you been

talking about this with Mom?

- Let's not tell Mom about this...

- About what?

Hi.

Emma, are you going

to give Dad a hug? Come here.

I love you. Bye bye.

- Bye.

- Bye.

- I'll start... What?

- How did it go'!

- It went we II.

- Good.

- Go ahead, say it.

- Did you want to say something?

- No. Did you?

- No.

I'm going to start work again.

I'll take it easy

for the next six months, -

since I'm still in recovery.

Anna.

I'll pair you

with Elias Kaski at first.

He works a side job

as a psychotherapist.

- So you think I need therapy?

- No.

It's because the other guys

are pissed at him -

because he fusses

over the drug addicts.

People can easily

cross the line in this job.

You could keep an eye

on his methods and what he does.

Why?

. - why? '

To see if he's using his therapist

skills to take advantage.

Don't you have

other men for this?

- With you he might...

- Someone from another department.

Quiet.

It's because with you he might slip.

And he might even cure you.

Analyze you. Or something.

You'll work with him.

The others here won't...

There aren't that many options.

We need three-shift workers

and cleaners.

- 50 you're not interested in that?

- No.

The three-shift work

is the only option.

If you don't accept the job, -

you 'll lose your benefits

for three months. - I know.

You 'll lose your

unemployment benefits. - I know.

Then your only option

would be welfare...

Let's party

Big Brother gave us booze.

There's too much fizz in this drink.

Pike, hi.

I thought you were in prison.

Pike!

- Pike, wait.

- Pike!

You're a goddamn whore!

Come here and I'll teach you!

You behave!

Please, don't! Stop!

39.60.

Thanks.

Siiri! She's got some paper

from the welfare office.

Do we accept these?

- Yeah, this is okay. Use code 8.

- Okay.

- Then do it normally.

- Okay.

I'm sorry; I'm new here.

I don't know everything.

Thanks.

Hi.

What's the situation here?

What did you take?

You hear me? What did you take?

- The guy wearing the cap?

- Yes.

Elias Kaski is a bit unique,

but you'll be fine.

Hi, Elias. Here's your new partner.

- Don't look too excited now.

- Olli Repo.

Hi. Good to see you.

- What's up?

- Recovering slowly.

They moved you to a different

department. - It's temporary.

- I've been meaning to call you...

- Everything's good.

- You sure?

- Positive.

Are you done?

Welcome to Narcotics.

Well. Well.

I hear you had a dose call.

Or...

We.

F*** you! I'm tired of this sh*t!

What the f*** are you staring at?

F*** you!

Riitta!

Hi.

Come here!

You want pizza?

This is the house. Yeah, this is it.

- Where the f*** are we going?

- What's the number?

Pike! How's it going?

- Pike.

- Good to see you.

This isn't the f***in' boonies

after all.

Nice apartment.

- Where did you get money for this?

- From the state.

- How much is the rent?

- How did you get this?

What do you pay for this?

- Pike, look.

- She's lovely.

We brought you

a housewarming gift.

It's a glue gun.

- This was the most expensive one.

- I want a baby too.

I mean, I didn't pay for it.

It was a great find.

Spaghetti is healthy.

It was delicious.

- Pike, give me a beer.

- I don't have any.

You panicked.

F***, it was Jah Rastafari.

It was a wet fart.

What the f***?

- You should chill a little.

- Yeah, chill.

Limppu. Put that away.

Roots, reggae, culture...

Awareness is the key.

- That's it.

- Take it easy.

- Let's take a hit. Then I'm out.

- No.

- F***...

- That's it.

F***, you don't have to...

why?

The man of the house will be happy

you're back. - Get the f*** out.

- You're back with your friends.

- Get out.

- Take it easy now.

- Get out.

F***! Calm down!

Her name is Alexandra.

So they let you keep her.

I almost missed you.

Why won't you

f***in' leave me alone?

Customs. This way, please.

You're traveling light.

- I don't own anything.

- Have you been smoking something?

I don't do drugs.

- Are you carrying drugs inside you?

- No.

If we take a piss test,

will it come back positive?
