Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Inspired by Dostoyevsky's famous novel, this engrossing Finnish version of Crime and Punishment revolves around an ex-law student in Helsinki (Markku Toikka) who now works in a slaughterhouse. One day the worker searches out the drunk driver who killed his fiancée and coldly shoots him to death. The worker does not get away without being seen by a woman named Eeva (Aino Seppo), and in spite of the fact that the woman knows everything, including his name (Rahikainen), she says nothing to the police about it. Instead, she and Rahikainen, the murderer, become involved in an affair that cannot possibly have a future.
