Van Veeteran (Sven Wollter) is a retired detective who comes unofficially out of retirement to help solve several cases in this Nordic crime drama. Van Veeteren Films volume 2 follows him and his colleagues in three episodes:
“Carambole”- Following a clandestine meeting with his lover a man kills a young boy in a hit and run, but does not escape unseen. The ensuing blackmail drama claims further victims, including Van Veeteren’s son, Erich.
“The Swallow, The Cat, The Rose and Death”- Münster (Thomas Hanzon) comes across the strangled body of a young woman in her home and surprises the murderer who is still on the premises. Though the murderer escapes, a rare book is found at the scene with a dedication by the killer.
