The body of a man is discovered in his car in a river bed. The dead man is quickly identified as Nils Wendt, who’s been missing since 1987. Mette Olsäter, an old colleague of Stilton, is in charge of the case and quickly opens a murder investigation. Where has he been all these years and why has he decided to make his return now?
Olivia tries to take it easy after the attack and that left her visibly shaken. When watching the news about the dead man in the car, she immediately recognizes Nils Wendt: this is the man she saw on the beach on Nordkoster Island. Sensing that she might be onto something, Stilton agrees to introduce her to Mette Olsäter.
Ove Gardman, the man who witnessed the beach murder as a child shares some news with Olivia that changes everything.
