It's over! The thriller has ended! We actually won the RiksAlarm contest, againts all odds. Thanks so much to everyone who voted for us! We owe you so much, and we hope to deliver a great show to you one day soon! I'm writing this from the hotel we're staying at. Have to go now. A real party with our friends from Kakkmaddafakka awaits! So long!
