18) Int. Vänersborg - orphanage Smödhelm - day
From somewhere inside the building the noise
of children can be heard. Runa knocks at the door of LINDA BORG. She works in the
department of administration and public relations.
Runa enters the bureau. Linda is drinking
coffee and surfing in the Internet.
Hello Mrs Borg. I have a small request which
I would like to ask you. It will only take two minutes.
Please... take a seat. How can I help you?
Runa softly strikes a strand off her face and
sits down. She fishes a package of cigarettes out of her purse.
Can I smoke here?
The whole orphanage is a non smoking area.
Of course. Stupid question.
Yes... My name is Runa Eskleth. I came here
from Halmstad, because I am looking for an old friend. We lost contact... and
this orphanage is the only clue I have to find him again.
A childhood acquaintance? So you also lived
here? That surely was before my time.
No ... no. I didn't live here. I got to know
him just a couple of weeks ago.
Linda shortly looks at her computer screen and
clicks on something.
I know this all sounds quite strange. But he
doesn't have a fixed address and this orphanage REALLY is the only clue I have
to find him again.
Linda adjusts the position of her glasses.
Your request is out of the ordinary, Miss
Eskleth. So what's the name of the young man you are looking for?
Ljandi. Lasse Ljandi
Linda types the name on the keyboard.
Yes, we have a file on a Lasse Ljandi.
So what can you tell me???
I am sorry. I am not allowed to give you
details from our database. That would violate our data protection rules.
But that's exactly why I am here!
As I said. I am only allowed to give such
information to the relevant authorities. You have to understand that.
Can't you make an exception in my case, just
I really can't do that.
Please... It really is important for me.
I can assure you at least that there is no
information concerning a possible current address in the file of Mr. Ljandi.
Disappointed she gets up and walks towards the
Listen, Miss Eskleth. Maybe unofficial
information will be more helpful to you. Björn Svaberg is the longest serving
employee here. He is our gardener. Why don't you have a chat with him?
Thank you very much!
Runa hastily leaves the room.
Linda takes a sip of coffee and concentrates
on the computer screen again.
