Summary, etc.: A string of suspicious deaths points to a potential serial killer who has turned his eye toward Fjl̃lbacka and her dark forests, where two children vanished decades before. A local woman is killed in a tragic car crash, but it isn't a clear-cut drunk driving case. The victim's blood contains high alcohol levels, yet she rarely drank a drop. Meanwhile, a new television series begins shooting in Fjl̃lbacka, and as cameras shadow the stars' every move, tempers start to flare. When a drunken party ends with an unpopular contestant's murder, all eyes turn to the cast and crew. Could there be a murderer among them? The ratings spike as the country tunes in to a real life murder mystery. Detective Patrik Hedstrom finds himself increasingly unable to focus on the strange circumstances of the first case, but what if that holds the key to a series of other unsolved cases across Sweden? Under the unforgiving media spotlight, Patrik tackles his most challenging investigation yet.
