Beck: Without Intent
18 November 2018 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

When a woman is found dead at the bottom of her stairs it is assumed that she was murdered. The two prime suspects are her abusive ex-husband and her current boyfriend. Tensions are already high between Steinar and new boss Alexandra 'Alex' Beijer before disagree about who the killer is. The way Steinar goes about stresses his belief serves to undermine Alex's authority. The more we learn about the two suspects the harder it is to determine which, if either, is guilty. Beck himself takes a relatively minor role; mostly mediating between Steinar and Alex; he also has to deal with his neighbour who has stopped drinking and seems all the worse for it.

This episode provides a decent central mystery although it is clear from early on that this is there to provide a source of tension between Alex and Steinar. This in turn gives Beck something to do; with is ever reducing role in the solving of cases I can't help wondering how long the character will survive in the series that bears his name. He still provides some entertainment; mostly in the scenes with his neighbour; they are always an hilarious highpoint to episodes. The story provides some good tense moments; especially the gripping finale. Overall a decent enough episode if not a classic.

These comments are based on watching the episode in Swedish with English subtitles.
