Aku Louhimies' Frozen Land (aka Paha Maa) is an aptly named story of cold hearts, paralysed emotions and numb spirits in a wintry Helsinki.

Based on a Tolstoy story called "The False Note", it begins and ends with a funeral oration that raises the question as to whether life is worth living.

A variety of people are linked, initially through the passing of a forged €500 note, which brings nothing good to anyone, and a theme emerges about life as a relay race in which misfortune is the poisoned baton.
