Matti Kassila's films Inspector Palmu's Error (1960) and Gas, Inspector Palmu! (1961) were both based on Mika Waltari's novels. Because of there was no third novel, Kassila asked Waltari to write a screenplay to a new Palmu-movie. Waltari agreed. Three weeks later Waltari phoned Kassila and apologized that he couldn't write a script of a movie. Instead of that he had wrote a new Palmu-novel. That novel was published and Kassila wrote a screenplay with Kaarlo Nuorvala for the new Palmu-movie. See more »
Oh, I couldn´t believe my eyes when I found that there was even a page made for Komisario Palmu (or should I say inspector Palm, heh) movies! A Finnish movie from the 60s, doesn´t sound interesting, huh? But I must say these films are absolutely, utterly WONDERFUL! Great, natural, funny, talented actors; delightful, realistic, comedic plot. "Tähdet kertovat, komisario Palmu" is possibly my favourite among the Palmu-films. Leo Jokela is symphatic and adds laughs, Helge Herala is fantasticly disgusting as the major, Esko Salminen is candy for your eye and all the actors do wonderful jobs. I never, ever get tired of these movies, honestly! They make you laugh and they simply aren´t dated though are old. This and all the other "Palms" are BEST Finnish movies ever!
