Inspector Cluesoe or Clueless?

Detective Inspector Erik Salonsaari from the small town of Pori is the third investigating officer in charge of the endlessly ongoing Ulvila murder case, and now also in the fictitious child sex abuse investigations. Apparently Erik Salonsaari wears high heels to look taller…

Inspector Clouseau (or Clusoe in England)

“Clouseau is a bumbling and incompetent police detective in the French Sûreté, whose investigations are marked with chaos and destruction that he himself largely causes. His clumsy attempts at solving a case frequently lead to misfortune for himself and others; in the 1976 film The Pink Panther Strikes Again, he cannot even interview witnesses to a crime without falling down stairs, getting his hand caught in a medieval knight‘s gauntlet and then a vase, knocking a witness senseless (and voiceless), destroying a priceless piano, or accidentally shooting another officer in the backside. Clouseau is also not particularly intelligent, and will frequently follow a completely idiotic theory of the crime, solving the case only by accident. His incompetence, clumsiness and stupidity, the fact that he is usually right, and his ability to always survive perilous situations are enough to eventually transform his direct superior (former Chief Inspector Dreyfus) into a homicidal psychopath – to such a degree that Dreyfus even goes so far as to construct a doomsday device and threatens to destroy the world in a desperate attempt to kill Clouseau.”

It would be very funny if it wasn’t so very true…Inspector Salonsaari is responsible for having two innocent people behind bars, and their lives and families destroyed. There is no excuse for incompetence in his position. Inspector Salonsaari is also responsible for the demonisation of the accused in the press. Their reputations are in tatters for life.
