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?

F***ing 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?

They, well...

I could tell straight away.

They had talked in detail at home

and probably in the bank.

I noticed that they were gushing.


I suggest we pull out

for at least two, three months.

Then the properties are fresh again.

I've used this method before

with pretty good success.

You haven't sold anything and want

to pull out for two, three months?

At least.

Let the rabbits run.

If we hold back a little, -

the rabbits start humping again.

That's how it is.

Like with your wife at home.

This is the end of the line for us.

- What do you? We have a deal.

I've spent time and money.

I'll charge for every single cent!

- For work not done?

It doesn't work this way.

- This is exactly how it works!

Your sites have already

been mortgaged over their value.

They won't be finished if I can't

buy materials and pay workers.

This situation has changed.

You gave incorrect

information on the selling.

I was misinformed.

Let's agree that you'll pay only the

interest on the capital for a while.

The property won't be

finished if I lose my guys.

You're cornering me.

I can't even pay the interest.

Well, then... Hello.

Sorry for the interruption.

Like ljust said...

- I only need 40000.

Let's shake hands on it.

I give you my word.

The thing is, we need something

more concrete than your word.

Now I get it. - What?

That interruption.

You had planned it.

I don't...

- You conniving bastard.

I knew it.

Why do you have to be there

on a Sunday morning?

Koistinen and I decided

to show the place together.

There could be

questions for the builder.

Hasn't he sold just fine without

you? - We want to give it a go.

This is a really peaceful area.

The only sign of life was a deer

that ran across the road.
