Stopping to use a cash machine one evening, a man falls to the
ground: dead. A taxi driver is brutally murdered by two teenage
girls who demonstrate a complete lack of remorse. One girl escapes
police custody and disappears without trace. Soon afterwards, a
blackout covers half the country. When an engineer arrives at the
malfunctioning power station, he makes a grisly discovery...
Inspector Kurt Wallander is sure that these events must be linked -
somehow. Hampered by the discovery of betrayals in his own team,
lonely and frustrated, Wallander begins to lose conviction in his
role as a detective. And somehow these criminals seem always to
know the police's next move.
