This series is a great tribute to Anna- Leena Härkönen the writer of the book Häräntappoase. Santeri Kinnunen in his breakthrough role is very good as is Outi Alanen. The series stays true to the book and is at least as funny and touching as the book. Timeless classic in Finnish literature and now also in Finnish TV-history.
