1. Room 302 | Rum 302
The body of a young woman is found in a Stockholm hotel room, and it appears that she has been strangled after a night partying with two young men.

5. Gunvald
An investigative journalist is found murdered in his home, along with the fingerprints of a notorious criminal debt collector.

The case takes an unexpected and terrible turn, and suddenly there is much more at stake than finding the journalist’s killer.

An unidentified body is found in the remains of a trailer after a fire at a run-down caravan park. The owner of the trailer, a young drug-addicted woman, is missing, but is she really the victim?

Police supervisor Klas Freden decides to go over Martin Beck’s head and recruit charismatic Norwegian homicide investigator, Steinar Hovland.

An ex-policeman is found murdered in his house, along with his wife and child. Beck and his team take on the case and find that there is a hidden security room in the victims’ house, containing stolen weapons.

The question is how the former police officer ended up with the weapons and how he is connected to the thieves.

8. The Last Day | Sista dagen
When traffic officers on a quiet morning shift try to stop a car for speeding they are shot at and one of them is killed. Beck and his team lead an extensive search for the ruthless killer.
