With no evidence for murder, Maria Wern and her colleagues at the Gotland police department find themselves looking for a stalker or considering psychosis in the victims. When more dead bodies show up, Maria's colleagues Ek and Erika are forced further into the center of events than they ever thought they would be. Episode 5: BLACK BUTTERFLY
- The charred body of a suffocated medium lies in the gutted remains of her office after a fire.

At the same time, her colleague Arvidsson's loyalty is forcibly put to the test. Episode 6: BOY MISSING
- A ten-year-old boy disappears from a dinner, while another vanishes from a refugee camp.
