Pero apenas ha encontrado un granero apartado, unos ruidos lo detienen. Onni salva a otro visitante del granero, el coronel Kemppainen, un viudo que habia decidido matarse ese mismo dia. Ambos renuncian al comun proposito y empiezan a charlar sobre los motivos que les impulsaban. Toman una sauna, beben conac y empiezan a tutearse, hasta que se rinden ante la evidencia: existe un gran numero de candidatos al suicidio. Nace asi una larga amistad y la idea de fundar una asociacion de «aspirantes a suicida». Asi, treinta y tres companeros deciden partir, en un flamante autocar, en busca de un suicidio colectivo digno: cruzaran Europa hasta encontrar el mejor acantilado desde el que lanzarse deliciosamente al vacio."--from amazon.com
