Vares: Episodes 4-6

Product Description

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.

Investigating a murder in a small, secluded village, Vares discovers a town in the grip of a powerful religious sect. Drugged and locked away in the local psychiatric clinic, Vares manages to escape and must now bring down a ring involved in extortion, religious scams and much more.

Vares has fallen in love with a woman who is soon found murdered. He's hired by her brother Timo to find the killer, but Timo himself starts acting suspiciously after he catches his wife in the arms of a dubious bank manager who's involved in a big financial scam.

Things aren't going well for Vares: he's in the crossfire of two vindictive men, his friend Ruuhio has disappeared, and he's getting nowhere in his investigation of the death of a famous tango singer. As his enemies close in on him, a car bomb explodes, changing everything...
