Mischa smuggled drugs in her cello case unbeknown to her but forensics reveal an unexpected link between victim and killer,giving the reason for the murder as personal. Irina is moved to a houseboat where she proves her worth in a gun battle between the police and her pursuers. Written by don @ minifie-1

Bad Russians get an innocent cellist involved in their smuggling
3 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an average crime story uplifted mainly by the presence of Krister Henriksson as Wallander. It is paced somewhat slowly and has few emotional hills and valleys. Not boring but not grabbing the viewer either.

Katerina gets a bigger part in this one and a chance to express a greater range. She even gets to play cop briefly.

Kurt's love of classical music almost gets him killed when a female Russian cellist is the target of a car bomb, but Kurt pulls her to safety. Furthermore, her conductor has been shot and killed. There is less detective work in this episode, more violence, and more digressions into personal lives. The scripts are tending to decline in quality.
