Storyline

Linda discovers nine corpses and a live baby girl locked in an abandoned container lorry. Her father assumes the driver fled when he realized his cargo of illegal immigrants had died. A photo leads to a convent, whose abbess - an evacuee herself as a child - has helped many refugees and believes the ends justify the means to give them better lives. Holmblad, who owned and drove the lorry, is found, tortured and murdered, and his house ransacked. Written by don @ minifie-1

A Deadly Diversion
24 November 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Linda has the great misfortune to be at the scene of a horrible event. A semi-truck has been abandoned and when opened the police find a group of refugees who have suffocated. Two children and a baby are still alive. It turns out there is more to this than the smuggling of aliens into Sweden. The driver has left these people behind to die. Linda is severely affected by this scene. As the investigation goes on, it is found that there is more to the cargo than the refugees--that they are likely a distraction for the transportation of drugs. Wallander becomes emotionally involved in this. The trail leads through a series of layers that make the apprehension of these awful people immensely difficult. At the conclusion, Wallander makes a decision where he must make a sacrifice which could lead the viewer quite appalled.
