Sample text

Sowohl die Juden als auch die Palästinenser haben immer im jetzigen Israel gelebt, Kosovo ist immer ein Teil Serbiens gewesen, und die Iraker haben Kuwait nur wieder mit ihrem Land vereinigt. Man müsste doch nun begreifen, dass kein Volk irgendeine Region für alle Zeiten bewohnt. Staaten kommen und gehen, und Grenzen werden mal hierhin, mal dorthin verlegt. « �Na ja, Karelien jedenfalls ist ein Teil Finnlands«, knurrte Ratamo. Er war wirklich nicht in der Stimmung, mit jemandem einen Disput zu führen.

Solche Preise wird doch wohl niemand aus eigener Tasche bezahlen«, erwiderte Ketonen, nahm Ratamo die à la carte-Speisekarte weg und drückte ihm dafür die Tageskarte in die Hand. �Ich bezahle es ja auch nicht aus eigener Tasche, da du mich doch einlädst«, sagte Ratamo, winkte den Kellner heran und gab seine Bestellung auf.

Der letzte Julitag zeigte sich warm und windig. Zuweilen glaubte Forsman dasselbe metallische Geräusch von Schritten zu hören wie an den beiden Vortagen, doch dann ging es wieder im Verkehrslärm unter. Er bekam schlecht Luft, und der Schweiß floss ihm in Strömen übers Gesicht. Angst erfasste seinen ganzen Körper – Angst, er könnte bei seiner Lebensaufgabe versagen.
