Extra info for Until Proven Guilty
So waren ihre Gespräche immer, dachte Ratamo, über ernste Dinge wurde nie geredet. Im Laufe der letzten Jahre war Väisäläs Mutter an Alzheimer erkrankt, Himoaalto, der gerne und viel trank, hätte fast seine Familie kaputt gemacht, und er selbst hatte erfahren, dass der vor zwei Jahren gestorbene Tapani Ratamo gar nicht sein biologischer Vater war. Von anderen Widrigkeiten ganz zu schweigen. Vielleicht genügte es, dass sie alle drei über die Angelegenheiten der beiden anderen und auch ihre Probleme Bescheid wussten.
Vielleicht war auch das wieder nur ein Versuch, der ihn dazu bringen sollte, etwas zu tun, was sein Vater wollte. Sutela las den Brief ein zweites Mal, dann ein drittes und auch noch ein viertes Mal und schaffte es, sich so zu ärgern, dass er in Wut geriet. »Wenn Du imstande bist, meinen Anweisungen zu folgen, und nicht zurückweichst, sobald Schwierigkeiten auftauchen … Wenn Du Dich dazu entschließen kannst, nach Lappland zu reisen …« Wieder einmal behandelte der Alte ihn geringschätzig und versuchte ihn zu manipulieren.
Für einen alleinerziehenden Vater war es eine seltene Freude, einmal eine ganze Woche nur für sich zu haben. Und er musste nicht einmal Gewissensbisse haben, weil Nelli selbst vorgeschlagen hatte, nach Pusula in Markettas Ferienhaus zu fahren. Und obendrein war er auch noch Strohwitwer. Ilona hatte im Winter ein größeres Stipendium erhalten und damit für den Sommer ein Atelier im Haus des Finnischen Künstlerverbandes in der Nähe von Florenz gemietet. Ratamo wurmte es allerdings, dass Ilona die ganze Zeit, in der er Urlaub hatte, im Stiefelland mit ihrer Kunst verbringen wollte.
