Vares: Episodes 1-3

Product Description


VARES - EPISODES 1-3
Private investigator, ladies' man, hard-drinking pub regular: Jussi Vares is a hero whose laid-back nonchalance belies a rock-hard determination to solve the case. Created by bestselling Finnish crime author Reijo Maki, Vares radiates all the vulnerability and loneliness of a man who may not have found his place in life, but can pretty much do without it. He comes with a rogues gallery of friends which includes Alanen, the disgraced priest who owns the bookstore, the writer Luusalmi who's managed to scribble one successful book in his life, the ex-con Antidote, whose underworld connections come in handy, and pretty blonde cab driver/exotic dancer Anna. His outward appearance alternates between scruffy - necessary to gain the trust of lowlifes he needs for information, to cleaned up - useful for gaining the attention of ladies he s got his eye on. Set in Turku on Finland's southwestern coast, the quirky Vares features cases that run the gamut from intimate family score-settlings to big-time Russian Mafia trouble.

EPISODE 1 - THE KISS OF EVIL
Vares is hired by a grieving mother to investigate the unsolved murder of her daughter, Kerttu. The fact that Kerttu's best friend went missing a year earlier seems suspicious to Vares, who uncovers a second murder and some very unhealthy family ties...

EPISODE 2 - THE GIRLS OF APRIL
Ten years ago, three fun-loving female students vanished one after the other. Although no bodies were ever found, the entire nation was convinced that they had been killed. Journalist Ruuhio hires his friend Vares to pick up the investigation, but his timing couldn't be worse.

EPISODE 3 - GARTER SNAKE
A distinguished lawyer suspects that his wife is cheating on him with the lounge pianist Lobo. Vares keeps tabs on the pianist, but what he finds out propels him into the midst of a really messy affair involving drug deals, a prison break and pornography.

PO Boxes and FedEx
If you are shipping your order to a PO Box, please be aware that the only FedEx service that goes to PO boxes is FedEx Smartpost. With FedEx Smartpost, FedEx delivers the package to a local post office, and the post office finishes the final portion of the delivery. As a result, this transit time is a lot longer than with Home Delivery. Packages going to a PO box can take between 7-14 days or longer to be delivered depending on the final destination.
