Storyline

Drug-running biker Erik Strah is found on a beach, his neck broken and the drugs gone - to the fury of vicious drugs baron Jovan Brankovic who runs the racket under cover of the Bloodhounds, the Ystad motor cyclists' group. Another member,Hans Kolt, gets a visit from officers Svartman and Isabelle about suspected dog fights. Svartman is attacked by a dog and Isabelle is later confronted in her flat by a masked man warning her from giving evidence. She wants to quit the force but Public Prosecutor Katarina gets Wallander to persuade her to stay. Looking for his senile old mother,who has gone walkabout from her care home, pathologist Nyberg accidentally stumbles on a disused church where the drugs gang meets. When another young biker, Johannes, is intimidated into taking over from Erik,Wallander and his team are in a position to follow him, raid the church and catch the villains.

Bad Bosnian drug-runners, scary bikers with mean dogs, and a "ghost"
1 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Isabell's feminism is nowhere in sight,thank goodness. She is now competent, although inexperienced, regarded by Kurt as very capable, and all but stepping into Linda's shoes. Katerina, the public prosecutor, is trying to guide Kurt into being more understanding with his charges and less insensitive to their emotional needs.

This story has more conventional criminals in the form of drug transporters who are using bikers with super engines to run drugs across the border.A murky bit of greed results in the death of a courier, and this brings Kurt and company into the case. There are some heavy instances of intimidation and threats going on here. We may all wonder how we'd react if we were stripped naked and cement was being poured on us, or if a sibling was threatened if we didn't do what was demanded of us.

A rating of 7 is somewhat generous for this and the previous episode, but I can't deliver a 6.5. Why nit-pick? These are solid episodes. This one brought back a bit more of the "little" interplays that add so much color to the genre. In this one, Nyberg's elderly mom, who is in a home, tends to wonder off. Nyberg may work until he is 70 because he is in greater demand, he tells Kurt, who looks chagrined. Kurt admits to Martinsson that his job is his life and he knows he's not well-liked personally, but that Martinsson as supervisor will do well on the job and be well-liked. Kurt is basically a crusty professional who hasn't let personal considerations interfere with the police tasks. Katerina might just be the one to soften him up.
