With tourist season finally over on Lilla Karlsö, the pleasant September sun and warm sea entice a group of students to spend the weekend on the barren and remote island. Frida dozes off in the hot sun, but when she wakes up, she makes the horrifying discovery that her boyfriend and all her friends lie dead around her.
News of the murders spreads like a shock-wave across the country and each day the murderer remains at large, worry and panic course through the university. Is someone after the students, or were they just in the wrong place at the wrong time?
The series is set on the picturesque island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea, south of Stockholm, with a landscape renowned for its spectacular scenery and unpredictable weather. The isolation of the island provides the perfect setting for a crime series that plays on the hair-raising feeling that even when you’re alone, someone is watching you.
The series follows Inspector Anders Knutas, who works for the Visby police, where he has been in service for thirty years. He has an ailing marriage, and harbours secret feelings for his colleague, Karin Jacobsson, a bundle of energy who is strangely secretive about her private life.
