Salkkarit
5 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

Oh yes, Salkkarit rules! Finnish soap opera in Helsinki. Tries to copy the American soap operas and does it pretty well =). Some young actors have got the change of their lives by be casted in Salatut elämät. The characters have changed pretty fast, but the serial needs fresh blood all the time to be interesting.
