A politician’s daughter is kidnapped; Inspector Anders has already had to deal with the family once before.
Walter Sittler’s 14th case on the Swedish island of Gotland.
Commissioner Robert Anders (Walter Sittler) and his heavily pregnant girlfriend Emma (Frida Hallgren) are about to reunite their two single households. But Robert can’t pay much attention to his personal life: 20-year-old Fanny (Ester Sjögren), daughter of Maud Lönnquist, the leader of a right-wing populist party, is missing. Mother and daughter are no strangers to the police department of Robert Anders, Thomas Wittberg (Andy Gätjen) and Ewa Svensson (Inger Nilsson). Six years ago, the family was already involved in a murder case. The team suspects a politically motivated kidnapping and investigates the competing right-wing camp.
The first lead leads to a radical right-wing group. In particular, member Eric Flemberg (Jens Hultén) becomes the focus of the investigation, but has been missing for weeks. In his apartment, evidence is found that he had contact with Jenny Almlöv (Lisa Karlström), an old acquaintance of Robert and Emma, during psychiatric treatment. Jenny is the widow of a pedophile murderer Robert convicted years ago. The man had died during a police operation. At the time, he was proven to have had a relationship with Fanny.
Then the young woman’s personal fitness trainer, Wolfgang (Simon Schwarz), is found dead. Robert finds out that both Fanny and her mother Maud had a passionate affair with him. Did Eric Flemberg have Wolfgang on his conscience? Could Jenny have had something to do with the kidnapping? Unexpectedly, Fanny reappears, but suddenly Emma has disappeared.
