Retired Swede Bengt Andersson wakes up to find his wife brutally murdered next to him in the bungalow. He cannot remember anything from the night before – has he got something to do with the murder? Meanwhile, several attacks on well-known tourist destinations threaten to upset the calm of the Canary Islands. Is there maybe a connection to the murder?
