An adulterous couple, Nina Adler and Martin Rittner,are blown up in a beach-house explosion and foul play is suspected. Peter,Nina's husband and Martin's business partner, is a thuggish,dodgy sort but Rittner's wife gives him an alibi. A tramp,subject to memory losses,known to be in the area at the time of the murders,who participated in scams for Adler and Rittner, is also killed but again Adler has an alibi. Wallander learns that the key to the murders lies in a particularly despicable business fraud and a man out for terrible revenge for deeply personal reasons. Written by don @ minifie-1

Not up to par, but interesting cast trivia
4 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've just finished watching 7 episodes from season 2009-2010 and have to agree with some of the others who posted comments critical of this installment. Mroz picked out an unintentionally funny scene where Wallander swims at least half a mile, fully clothed with shoes - although I might add, he was also shot in the face and holding onto his pistol with one hand - not bad for an overweight, ready-to-retire cop who smokes like a chimney!

I don't mean to pick on Wallander's lifestyle choices, after all, they are part of what makes the character tick. But seriously, a little perspective on how to incorporate the man's strengths and weaknesses into a believable story. We don't watch Wallander to see chase scenes and shootouts at the expense of good character and plot development. Unlike previous installments, this episode seemed formulaic – which still ain't bad compared to most repetitive cookie cutter police dramas.

TRIVIA: Check out Iben Hjejle, speaking in her native tongue, who played John Cusack's girlfriend Laura (the significant one) in High Fidelity (2000).
