Later, Rask talks to Kalle's rich aunts Hilda and Hulda Krikonblad. He promises to make sure the sisters are safe.

When the sisters are looking at a shop window, Kalle pranks them by knotting their ropes together. Hulda laughs when she realizes what the teenagers have done. Hilda, however reacts differently, she calls for the police officer Rask. After unsuccessfully trying to catch Kalle, Rask brings Hilda back home.

A short time later, the musicians Vicke and Nisse sing in front of the house of the sisters. Nisse plays the guitar while Vicke plays the accordion. Hulda wants to give some money to the musicians, but Hilda is annoyed by the sound of the music. She yells at Vicke and Nisse and tells them to stop immediately. The White Rose and the Red Rose observe the whole thing and laugh with the musicians about Hilda's behavior. Then the teenagers say goodbye.

The musicians, however are out of money, and they do not know where to get any new money. Suddenly Nisse has an idea. He wants to kidnap Hulda and extort a lot of money for her release. It should happen that night.

The two musicians sneak into the apartment of the sisters and break in. But instead of kidnapping the kind Hulda they kidnap the tough Hilda. They wrap her into a blanket and carry her out. However, they are observed by Kalle. The next day not only Hilda is gone, but Kalle is missing as well.

Hulda receives a blackmailer letter. She is asked to pay a lot for the release of her sister. She reads the letter to the White and Red Rose. The teenagers try to help Hulda with their own pocket money.

Meanwhile, Hilda and Kalle are locked up in a small house by the criminals. While Kalle writes into his notebook, Hilda is angry. She throws the dishes onto the floor and complains. The criminals are annoyed.

The criminals are discovered by Hulda, when they try to get the ransom. Hulda tries to alarm the White and Red Rose. But instead the policeman Rudolf Rask comes and talks to the criminals. To distract the policeman, the criminals make music with him. Then they say goodbye and go back to the house where they keep Kalle and Hilda prisoner. But Kalle and Hilda have already planned how they can overpower the two criminals. These can later put into prison by Rudolf Rask.
