Petteri Sääskilahti, a 26-year-old student from Turku, was a contestant on the 2016 spring season of the Finnish version of the show on March 12, 2016. He walked away with nothing, having answered incorrectly in the fourth question.

His run was shot in the January of 2016. He is a member of a pubquiz team called 'Lasse Lehtisen lapset' (The Children's of Lasse Lehtinen), named after the first Finnish Millionaire host Lasse Lehtinen.

Who is the main character of 'Post Office' novel by Charles Bukowski?
'Ask 3 of the Audience' and 'Phone a Friend' lifelines used
• A: Holden Caulfield • B: Winston Smith
• C: Citizen Kane • D: Henry Chinaski
Petteri did not have a clue, so he asked three of the audience. Lauri (from Helsinki) said he does not know the right answer, but said it cannot be C: Citizen Kane. This was the only time during the season when one of the three chosen ones did not say what he/she would pick. Hanne (from Vihti) said it could be A: Holden Caulfield, but said she was not sure. Sami (from Espoo) had a hunch the answer could be D: Henry Chinaski, but was not sure. Sami also thanked his mother-in-law who was taking care of Sami's children and dogs at home, so Sami could come to see the show with his son and wife.

Then Petteri phoned his friend Ville Sirviö. Ville said the answer is probably A: Holden Caulfield, and at least the answer is not C: Citizen Kane. Petteri went with Ville and chose A: Holden Caulfield. Since the answer was wrong, Petteri walked away with nothing. The question was criticized in the social media as being too difficult at this point of the game.
