I AM WILLIAM
William and Uncle Nils are a good team, even if William doesn't really understand what his uncle actually does for a living. In any case, Nils suddenly owes the local gangsters a lot of money. William summons all his courage and asks the big boss for a deferral, which is granted on the condition that William walk his scary Rottweiler. No problem! Knowing the gangster turns out to be most useful indeed.
