Gundega and Ināra go shopping. Meanwhile, Viktor has a shower, exercises and eats breakfast. After that, he has to go to his furniture restoration workshop. There he works enthusiastically and so doesn’t notice when two police officers come into the workshop.

‘Hello,’ they say. Inspector Buļš and Inspector Ludboržs, State Police, Latgale region force, Daugavpils police station.’

‘Hello! How can I help you?’

‘An antique chair has been stolen from the Latgale Culture and History Museum in Rēzekne, – Inspectors Buļš takes a picture out from a black folder. ‘Look, this one. Has anything like this come into your workshop?’

Viktor takes the image in his hands and inspects it carefully. The chair in the picture is very similar to the chair that Gundega brought to him for restoration. Viktor is shocked: if Gundega is actually a criminal… But no, that’s not possible! Gundega is very nice!

But Viktor cannot lie to the police officers and says ‘I recently restored a similar chair. It’s at my house at the moment and the owner is staying at ours.’

‘Please take us to your house so we can have a look at the chair.’

When Viktor arrives home together with two police officers, he tells Gundega and Ināra what has happened. The police take a look at the chair and say to Gundega:

‘You will have to come along to the station with us. We’ll take the chair along too.’

‘Oh no!’ Gundega exclaims and clasps her hands together.
