    Episode 076 : Tampere pizzeria arson

    Episode 076 : Tampere pizzeria arson

    A newspaper deliverer had just entered into an apartment building to complete their daily round when the main door smashed into pieces and combustion fumes started flowing in.

    This case was partly a listener suggestion – thank you Derek for the inspiration to cover an arson!

    **IMPORTANT**

    As some of you may know, I am a university student. The new semester starts next week and I'm going on my final year. I'm supposed to graduate next spring if all goes well and because of that, after today's episode I will switch my schedule and publish new episodes only once a month. That way, I can focus better on my master’s thesis and get some rest. Thank you for all the support thus far and I hope you will keep listening!

Fantastic listen

A great, well informed look into the darker side of Finland, contrasted well with the soft spoken voice of the narrator. 10/10 would recommend.
