1982: At the height of the Cold War, a Russian submarine invades Swedish territorial waters. Present day: A fisherman pulls the dead body of a diver out of the sea. This discovery resurfaces the Cold War submarine affair. The diver’s death appears tied to high political offices and classified materials. And more. The affair also involves Inspector Kurt Wallander’s daughter’s in-laws. The head of the family, Håkan von Enke, is a retired forefront officer from the Swedish Navy. As events and people from the past resurface, Håkan goes missing. Wallander starts his own unofficial investigation, which leads him to uncover a series of undercover and espionage operations of the Cold War, involving Håkan von Enke himself. Wallander is faced with the question: what is most important - the truth or family?

"The movie is in many ways different. It’s not the usual crime plot. Another challenging and exciting thing was that the plot took place in Stockholm and its archipelago, which new territory for Wallander. For me it was also important to show Wallander’s relationship with his family and relatives. With his granddaughter, Wallander finds the emotions that he never had with his own daughter, something that he regrets but accepts." [Agneta Fagerström Olsson]
