When Manfred Stjarne is stabbed to death outside the Brada cider factory his wife Claire has inherited - suspicion falls on Polish worker Jan Kowalski, with whose wife Manfred was having an affair, but Jan is found hanged - later evidence suggesting foul play. Benjamin Wilkes, an ex-psychologist who helped Manfred select redundancy candidates, is killed in the same way as Manfred, putting disgruntled ex-Brada employees in the frame, but a third slaying implicates a former patient of Wilkes, who has connections to the Stjarne family. A newly loved-up Isabelle and Pontius start to fool around whilst on surveillance, taking their eye off the ball and allowing this suspect to confront Claire. Written by don @ minifie-1

Murder Among the Apples
5 December 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is one of those episodes where one should not think too much. The bad people make all kinds of mistakes. A little common sense would go a long way. In addition to the murder mystery itself, we have the seeming breakup of Kurt and Katarina. She sees the relationship as inappropriate (at least she says that). We also have Pontus and Isabelle beginning a torrid relationship. She is reeling from being shot twice in the previous episode, saved by her vest. Kurt, on the rebound, begins to have feelings for his prime suspect. The crimes in this case are rather dramatic and consistent, yet to pull them off one would have to be very fortunate. I won't say more, but the villain in this story is truly psychotic. Slightly above average.
