Uuno has a new job at the travel agency. His in-law Tuura is taking holiday trip to Spain far away from his son in law. But who other than Uuno is his trip director in Spain. This holiday is going to be unforgettable.
Absolutely one of the best black & white films made in Finland, but for sure the best Mika Waltari novel that has been filmed into a motion picture. Even beats The Egyptian(Sinuhe)(laugh). Murderer makes always one mistake and you make a mistake too if you don´t watch this one. Film includes old Helsinki scenes and fabulous actors, very scary + jazzy music score.
And hey, did you know that loads of hilarious amateur film versions have been made of "Komisario Palmu", inspired by this classic Finnish crime film. Perfect.
