An infamous 'psychic' abandons his public persona, outing himself as a fake, to focus on his work as a consultant for the California Bureau of Investigation in order to find "Red John," the madman who killed his wife and daughter.
With his rumpled raincoat, ever-present cigar, bumbling demeanour and Sherlock Holmesian powers of deduction, disarmingly polite homicide detective Lieutenant Columbo took on some of the most cunning murderers in Los Angeles, most of whom made one fatal, irrevocable mistake: underestimating his investigative genius.
Crusty old Greger Stehn and his equally unpopular dogs are poisoned with botulinum. Despite drawing out 20 million krone from the bank Greger lived in a hovel opposite a block of luxury flats where the wives are into yoga, keep fit and botox - which uses botulinum. The money has disappeared and the chief suspect is Johan Haartman, a plastic surgeon with heavy debts who was in the bank when Greger took out the money. Then he and his wife are also poisoned and their baby is fostered by a neighbour, whose child died in a cot death. Is she the killer? Written by

When I heard that there will be a new Wallander series without Rolf Lassgard as the main character i was quite sceptical and after seeing "innan frosten" I was not really convinced of the new franchise. Luftslottet however proved me wrong. Krister Henriksson certainly interprets the character of the south-Swedish policeman differently than his predecessor, nevertheless he still offers a view on a person with many different facettes. What makes this movie so special, is the fact that the viewer is lead into several wrong directions until finally the murder and the robbery are cleared up. This normally makes any good thriller or crime-story, but the way it is done here is really good quality entertainment. If you get this film as a copy on DVD i predict an interesting evening full of suspension.
