One of many small Norwegian islands. The postman is delivering packages. At one place he noticed door wide opened. As he knew the tenants, he came up to check the house. Inside he found two dead bodies. When he was moving back to the car, he was spotted by a boy, living in that house, holding a rifle. The postman managed to run away and notify the police. The boy, Jan Egil (Sturla Alvsvåg) told Hamre, that he will negotiate only with Varg Veum, otherwise he will kill his hostage, friend from school Silje (Dagny Backer Johnsen). Varg took care of young Jan Egil, when as a social worker decided to take the boy from his addicted to narcotics mother. Now, when boy is almost a man, in the whole investigation former Varg's co-workers are involved - Cecilie (Line Verndal) and Hans (Vegar Hoel).
Maybe in a general opinion this piece does not have the most sophisticated riddle, but it the nicest to watch (if you skip those few scenes, when Varg is alpha male). And Hamre is pretty friendly. And many bad people dies, which is usually a benefit.
