Whilst investigating the death of a pregnant girl who was pushed off a ferry, Wallander discovers a ten-year old skeleton in the garden of the house where he lives with girl-friend Vanja. Elderly neighbour Fredrik points him towards the house's previous occupant, violent pimp Jan Petrus, whose daughter Ellika went missing a decade earlier. However, after the pregnant girl has been identified by a friend who is also killed, Ellika contacts Wallander and gives him vital information to help identify the skeleton and her murderer. A confrontation with the killer also solves the more recent double slayings. Written by

Did You Know?
The original short story, which was written in 2004, was largely unavailable to the public until 2013 (2014 for the English-language market), meaning most viewers were unfamiliar with the source material when this adaptation was first broadcast in the summer of 2012. See more
Names of the both young Polish girls (the one killed on the ferry and her prostitute friend), aren't Polish at all. "Snezna Botez" is completely nonsense (despite there is a Polish word "sniezna", but it's not human first name, it means "snowy"). Only surname of the other one - "Nowak" - is common in the Slavic countries like Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and others. See more
