Directed by Lauri Nurkse & adapted from the novels by Matti Rönkä (Finland, 2011). Private investigator Viktor Kärppä (Samuli Edelmann) is a former KGB agent haunted by his past. When he settles in Finland, the country of his ancestors, it is his attempt to create an orderly and tranquil life with his new girlfriend Marja Takala (Maria Ylipää), an independent-minded academic who prefers to keep her life simple. But when a kindly antiques dealer approaches him for help in finding his Estonian wife, Kärppä soon finds himself in a descent into the international criminal underworld – complete with drugs, KGB operatives, and lowlifes – as the uncomplicated life he had with Marja begins to slip away. Kärppä is not a killer, even if he looks like one, but can a man change his identity – or shed his loyalties – merely by crossing a border?
Look of a Killer is a gripping thriller based on the novels by acclaimed Finnish author Matti Rönkä – known for their strong political and social focus and the grim realism of their Finnish, Russian, and Baltic settings.
Each installment is 90 min. and in Finnish with English subtitles.
