Zem, or the Skill to Catch a Killer

Joop Wassenaar • Boek • paperback

  • Samenvatting
    The Ulvila Killing, on the first of December 2006 in a suburb of the Finnish town of Pori, is the most famous 'cold case' in the country's history of crime.

    In 'Zem, or the Skill to Catch a Killer', this bizar event is seen from a new perspective: as being part of the political developments of those days.

    The title refers to an episode of Twin Peaks, with Zen turning into Zem and the scenery from the American Far West to a remote corner of Northern Europe. But the people in this book are subject to the same Lynchian sense of awe and threat...

The Twin Peaks in my story is called Pori. It is a harbour town at the southwestern coast of Finland, with about a hundred thousand inhabitants.

Pori suffers from the same fate as the other Finnish towns: in a country so scarcely populated, the phenomenon 'town' is unknown. Finns are a bunch of only five million, sharing an area half the size of France. And they are eager to avoid each other. In a place such as Pori this means that people go to work there, but tend to live in its suburbs or in the countryside around it. The medieval town centre has been wasted by building straight roads for all this traffic. It also means that after six o'clock in the evening the area is empty, except for the tattood and bald youngsters who joyride old American vehicles around the market square.

Let us hop into Anton Café, on the west side of this market square. ×
