Kai Lehtinen is amazing in the part of Raid. Raid is a hitman with morals. Now he has come back to Finland after many years to investigate the strange circumstances surrounding the suicide of his former loved one. The series is packed with colorful characters who are played by the best of the best finnish actors. Writer/director Piirainen has adapted the series from Nykänen's novels. I have not read the books, but I've heard that the series is even better. So, for anyone who hasn't seen it yet... if you have a chance to catch this somewhere, I warmly recommend. It's available on DVD in Finland.
