  • CLASSIC Alternative


Comic narrative about a writer, based on the author Kari Hotakainen, who is critically acclaimed but with few sales. He is asked by his publisher to write a self-revalatory diary of his early years as a writer. Desperate attempts to find inspiration for this hoped-for best seller take the writer into a world of fast cars and a police chase broadcast live on Finnish television. The story binds together the writer's pseudo diaries and the reality of Finnish men and society.
