22) Int. Gothenburg - Erik's flat - afternoon
Runa reaches the second floor via the staircase.
Erik already awaits her in front of his door.
(a little shy)
Hi. What's with Mr. Kjelva?
He is ... ehh. Just come inside for a sec.
Runa is surprised by this offer. Nevertheless
she follows into the flat.
You want some coffee? Or a beer?
Thanks, coffee would be nice.
Sit down. The living room is through there!
Erik shows her the way to the living room.
While Runa walks in front of him he eyes her up form head to toe.
Erik walks into the kitchen to make coffee.
Runa examines the living room which apparently
needs some cleaning up. A lot of music equipment is lying around.
Cut To Erik
Erik pours coffee into two mugs.
Where are you from?
Cut to Runa
Runa looks into the music books on the table.
Do you want to visit Ari? Or... I haven't seen you
Erik enters the living room with two mugs of
coffee. He sits down on an armchair opposite to Runa.
You're sitting down, that's good.
What's the best way to explain it?
Close up Runa
Back to scene
The thing with the cripple is...
With the what?
Sorry. It just slipped out. But everyone
here in this house calls him that.
Well. You know. Because of the wheelchair.
So he is disabled.
I thought you knew him.
No, not really.
Good. In that case I don't have to be too
sensitive. So... Well, he is dead.
Dead? That can't be!
Well, it can. Suicide.
Little wonder. That wasn't a life anymore.
He virtually never got out of the house and his only visitors were the
supermarket delivery service... and the pizza guy. If I was in his position, I
would have probably done it as well. Sooner or later....
Well. Good thing about is, that I don't have
to carry down his rubbish bags anymore. Cos he always used to put them in front
of my door!
I think you're disgusting!
Erik ignores this remark.
You want a cigarette?
Thanks. Not now.
What did you want from Kjelva?
He has ... eh... some information I need.
Really? What kind of information? The
password for his Swiss bank account? Surely he wasn't a rich man.
It's a private thing.
But there has to be some way into his flat?!
Did you notice the seal above the keyhole?
That was the old bill. Cos officially Kjelva's death isn't classed as suicide
But I must get inside.
Hello? Are you listening to me? I don't
think the old bill are going to like you poking around in there. Apart from
that... it stinks inside.
There has to be some way!!! Can you help me?
Erik is fascinated by Runa's assertiveness... he
I'll see what I can do for you Sweetheart.
The doors here aren't that difficult to open.
Runa wants to get up.
Hey, easy, easy lil' princess. Let's wait
till it's dark and all those pensioners stop creeping around the staircase...
