Storyline

The easy-going village policeman Artturi Sakari Reinikainen from the series "Tankki Täyteen" has been transferred from the village of Hämeenperä to Tampere city. His stint as a Tampere beat cop starts on the wrong foot as he ends up being thrown in the drunk bin on his first night in Tampere ("Yea yea, another one who thinks he's a cop"). Reinikainen is not discouraged by the experience and soon he is found upholding the law in his usual talkative, laid-back but honest fashion. The other cops in the precinct are in a category all by themselves, including a would-be ladies man, a cop who tends to have to search for the mot juste and a veteran copper who is always testing his workmates on their knowledge of trivia.

Reinikainen is still going strong!
14 March 2002 | by (Vantaa, Finland) – See all my reviews

Policeman Artturi Reinikainen was actually a minor character in a tv-series "Tankki täyteen". He became so popular that he got a tv-series on his own!

Reinikainen is an ready-mouthed, experienced policeman. He has a great sense of humor and he loves to tell unbelievable stories. He dates occasionally with Aili Hinkka, a social worker. Their relationship is really interesting to follow! The other characters are excellent too. I like especially lieutenant Rautakallio, who does not have an idea what is going on around the precinct. There are no terrible crimes on Reinikainen. It is usually question about drunks, thieves, cheats..or misunderstandings! This series is simply well-made and hilarious. It makes one laugh even now, despite of its age. One of the best Finnish series ever!
