An elderly couple, the Lovgrens, are murdered at their isolated farmstead and Mrs. Lovgren's last word to Wallander seems to be "Foreigners." When this is leaked to the press a migrant labourers' camp is torched and a foreign worker shot by anonymous right wing vigilantes. Daughter Linda, dating a Syrian doctor, accuses Wallander of racism and, although Lovgren's brother-in-law tells the police that the dead man had a hidden fortune, which his murderers stole, and an illegitimate son, neither fact is immediately helpful. However, Wallander's obsessive pursuit of the owner of a car used in the revenge killing yields a result, though it almost costs him his job and the Lovgrens' slayers are finally cornered in a fairground.

The bandage on Wallander's hand disappears a couple of times. When he is driving to the farm (when he finds the satchel) he wipes his left hand across his face and there is no bandage. When he is at the farm, the bandage is there. A second time, when he is driving away from his father's house, he again wipes his left hand across his face and the bandage is gone. Next scene, the bandage is back. See more
