When? -What does it matter?

When you weren't at home!

What CD is that?

- It's just this...

We played this at my mum

and dad's funeral. You were there.

I can't remember the music.

I'll put it on. - Stop it!

What's going through your head?

- What now?

We're not playing this.

Sami, help!

Has something happened?

Sami, help!


Don't you realise

what you have done?

Fucking bastard!



Bloody hell.

This is Sami Luoto.

I've had enough.

I will do my best, like I promised.

That's all I can do.

Hi, are you on patrol?

Can you pick me up?

Don't you have a spare tyre?

- Yes, but not four.

You're not in trouble, are you?

- No, this is kids' doing.

Do you want to file a report?

Is it any use? - No.

No, I meant for the insurance.

You're fully insured, right?

Sami. Sami. - What?

You're fully insured, right?

- Yeah! Close the door.

Are you coming on Saturday?

- Yeah.

What does Annika want

for a present? - Money.

I didn't think she'd want

a cross pendant. Hey, Sami.

Were you alone at the site?

Yes, why?

Has something happened?

You look pretty tired.

Why did you get a lift from Santtu?

- Flat tyre.

I put the sauna on.

Your father called. - When?

About an hour ago.

He had tried to call.

I didn't hear. What did he want?

- He doesn't tell me anything.

Have you had time to see

about those microcars? - What?


Everything is in order. - Good.

Annika, dinner!

What is she doing? Annika!

Everything is in order. Everything.

It would've been nice to have

a lie-in on a Sunday.

Where are we going?

- It's a surprise.

Isn't this mysterious? - Your

surprises tend to mean trouble.

What do you mean?

- Mum taught me that.

Come on now! Quick!

Well? - What?

What do you think?

- Of what?


a 3000 square metre plot.

I'm going to build four houses.

Three that are 700 -

and for us one

Have you bought this land?

- Yes. Well?

But you've one unfinished

house and two unsold houses.

Koistinen has buyers

for the house on Pihlatie.

Another couple is going to make

an offer on Latokuja, so no worries.

I had to be fast to get them.

But how did you pay for this?

I took a loan extension. - What?

It's a temporary solution.

- Do you know what you're doing?


I'm not taking any risks.

Like I promised you.

Okay, the house will be

in the middle.

Annika, move two metres to the left.

Move! This has to be right!

- I'll move. What does it matter?

No, bloody hell, you'd be

in the garden! Go back!

What are you two whispering?

- I told Annika to move a little.

This is stupid!

Don't... Look, concentrate!

I only see trees.

- Use your imagination!

I'm just trying to figure out

how I'd be able to see my friends.

Well... This will take at least year,

but on a scooter or in a microcar!

What did you say?

On a scooter or in a microcar.

Did you hear? - Yes.

I'm getting a microcar.

- Yes, you are.

Could we have my

confirmation party here?

That's not going to work.

It could rain or...

Use your imagination.

- What?

We could rent a marquee.

- Yeah!

Okay. Family hug.

If this new site is successful,

then the sky's the limit.

Don't get too excited. - Koistinen

is an excellent estate agent.

I never said

that Pihlatie is a done deal.

We were supposed to sign today.

- Yes, but times are difficult -

and this credit crunch makes

people and the banks careful.

What's happening here, is

a kind of "between the ears" effect.

"Between the ears" effect? - Yes.

Well, this Ltjnen

couple changed their minds.

That's life.

Did the couple interested in

the Latokuja house make an offer?
