Commissioner Beck and colleague-lover Lena Klingström finally booked a common holiday, but soon find neither con concentrate on it after Gunvald Larsson and the press report an apparently senseless slash-murder in the Stockholm metro system, so Lena prefers to return. Sulking Beck is made team leader of a task force, which soon includes other corps. The home of missing conductor Erik, on whose shift a murder was committed, Beck is alarmed finding elaborate network plans, and an Internet-sign for "death". Beck looses charge, having made no progress after three more murders, but disagree with terror specialists comparing the case to the religious fanatics' Tokyo poisoned gas slaughter. The tunnel system is closed and searched, Beck finds Erik hiding there, fearing his sister Annika's young video-gaming-in-real-life gang, which stages power cuts to reach a higher level by bloody killing.Written by
Even though this is the eighth and last episode of season 1, it was actually the second to be released. Just like Beck: Lockpojken (1997) it was released theatrically, with the poster title "Beck 2: Spår i mörker". See more »

Best swedish film ever!
This film is really great, actually it is the best Beck film. It has the right feeling, and probably it is quite realistic too. The crazy guys with the Night Googles are just too creepy.
I recommend this film! If you want to see a really good thriller, see this!
