Physical evidence for investigation


Each guest gets their own character


No fighting or eliminating other characters

A murder investigation, where the guests have characters, does not contain violence

A world-famous Belgian detective is arriving in Finland for a vacation. The locals are thrilled and are arranging a celebration in honor of this moustached gentleman, and everyone with any status has been invited. The chubby detective has no time to relax when the caretaker of the venue is found dead just before the party. There is no need to cancel the party, though, for the detective invites all the guests to solve the case. Of course they are all suspects, too…

Death of a Caretaker is an elegant and classy Murder Mystery set in 1930s Finland. The detective has scattered all the evidence in and around the venue for every guest to investigate. If the guests can fit all the pieces together, they might find out that besides a murder, there’s an international sham afoot, one that might destabilize the Finnish national economy if successful.

  • Each guest receives an invitation and a character by email

  • Tuoni Studios’ host is always present and acts as a guide to the program and its rules

  • Guests receive name tags and character sheets on site

  • The program does not include fighting or eliminating other characters

  • Includes physical evidence for guests to investigate

  • The duration is approx. 2-3 hours depenging on the number of guests and if there is a dinner served during the program

  • Language options: Finnish or English



Anyone who has any status in Finland or abroad might have been invited to the party in honor of Poirot. Besides the people behind Helsinki Olympic Stadium project and local high society, you might bump into internationally known people, such as Greta Garbo or Howard Hughes.



The event is a classy dinner in the early 1930’s. Dressing up for the Murder Mystery’s theme helps you immerse yourself in the story and we encourage such endeavors. Character sheets give some ideas of what the character might wear or look like. We want to emphasize that dressing up is not necessary, and the most important thing is to feel comfortable in whatever you choose to wear. What you can find from your own wardrobe is sufficient, but if you want to put in some extra effort, you might find what you need from costume rentals, flea markets, or party prop stores.


The venue should have enough seats for everyone in case of a dinner, and ample room to mingle. A dining hall or a large cabinet in a restaurant are great for this purpose. The evidence is scattered in or around the venue, so 2-3 extra tables are needed. There is no need for a stage nor additional AV equipment.


  • Acting or memorizing lines are not required when taking part in a Murder Mystery. No one is forced to exit their comfort zone. However, by throwing yourself into the story and your own character, you get the most out of the program.

  • If you normally need glasses to read, we recommend bringing a pair.

  • Conveying information and co-operating with other characters are the key to success in a Murder Mystery.

  • Some of the suspects and at least the murderer might be lying, so don’t trust everything you hear.

  • If you feel stuck, ask the Tuoni Studios’ host for help. They’ll give you more tips on how to advance with the program or solving the case.
