From my bicycle ride a couple of days ago. The concrete on both ends of the tunnel looks just like this. Unless there is a rural road that I don't know about in the woods nearby, people are coming an awful long way just to express their creative urges. The tunnel is 10 miles from the nearest town in either direction.

Perttu Häkkinen was a musician and journalist who died accidentally in the age of 39. He was returning from music festival with the bicycle which brakes were broken, only brake for front wheel was working. Being tired and a bit drunk he drove high speed in the middle of night (northern nights are light, though) without lights and saw obstacle on the path too late. Serious braking broke the bicycle, he didn't hit the obstacle but hit his head to the ground and died.

Perttu had written a documentary book about murder in the year 2001 where young drug addict was sentenced of murder of another drug addict, when they supposedly were collecting debts. This sentenced guy had left the murder scene already 90 minutes before the death and witnesses saying the victim was still alive and kicking. There were many strange things in the police investigation and this young drug addict was sentenced although it was clear and not questionable actually that he wasn't on the murder scene when the victim died. Witnesses also told that four unidentified men visited the scene after the sentenced guy had left. Police never found out who these four men were.

Surprisingly same polices who were part of the investigation 2001 were sentenced later, year after Perttu's death, in the biggest drug case for prison. The highest rank was the head of drug detectives of city of Helsinki. He had hijacked drug business from the one of the drug lords this police had been investigating and continued that business for years. This drug lord in question died in the prison. The head of detectives got last year another conviction for arranging a murder as a service to the fellow criminals in organised crime gang.

If these are not roots for a legend, which are?
