|He’s got no style, he’s got no flash and he’s squarely in middle age. But Swedish detective Martin Beck is good at one thing: methodically catching criminals so that they can be put away… for a long time. His tightly-wound partner, Gunvald, is his opposite: an impulsive man who cuts a dashing figure, is in no way politically correct and who never met a boundary he didn’t leap across. He’ll do anything to get information from a suspect, including “enhanced” interrogation techniques. It’s classic good cop/bad cop, and together with their team they bring down dangerous criminals lurking in the seedy Stockholm underworld. Beck’s a loner but he’s not anti-social; he regularly sees his daughter, with whom he now has a much better relationship than when he was neglecting her growing up. And at the end of a workday, there’s always an interesting conversation and a nightcap with a neighbor who gives new meaning to the word quirky.
Episode 7: The Money Man -The double-life of a homosexual police officer leads to a showdown between Beck and his arch-enemy Gavling, a.k.a. The Money Man - a notorious kingpin in the underworld of Stockholm.
Episode 8: Night Vision - A commuter on the last subway of the night is found decapitated. Beck uncovers a gang of young computer freaks who have transformed the entire underground into a hellish, real-life videogame where innocent people become targets.
Episode 9: The Revenge - Two patrolling police officers are killed after stumbling onto criminals who have just stolen large amounts of explosives. Detective Martin Beck and his team must locate the suspects before it’s too late.
