Commissioner Martin Beck's intends to resign after hearing his long-estranged son Micke Sjögren, who even took his mother Agneta's name after she left Martin years ago, was fatally shot by unknown fiends as involuntary-undercover amphetamine courier during Beck's colleagues John Banck and Yvonne Jäder's hunt for Polish drug smugglers. Gunvald Larsson is forced to step up as Martin seems unwilling to return, but his unofficial investigation, triggered by his truly-lush senior neighbor, proves as crucial. Stockholm's crime king's latest bloody victim, a restaurant owner Hakdahl, 'served' in his own roasted chicken spits machine, seems Gunvald and chief 's priority. Meeting Mikey's girl at a dodgy 'dance' club, Martin traces the party drugs his boy used and smuggled to a medical supplies-cover in Cracovia, Poland and ties all cases, worse then feared.
