Summary/Abstract: The continuation of Chukotka notes tells a tragic tale of how a drinking event leads to a person being killed and describes the course of the ensuing investigation. The investigation does not lead to discovery of the murderer - as forecasted by the involved parties - and could be viewed as a demonstration of the absurdity of Soviet lifestyle. Elaborated descriptions of situations and dialogues convey the atmosphere of contemporary times.
