Storyline

The young coast guard and diver Jessica finds two dead scuba divers after a storm. She disagrees with her superiors that it was an accident and seeks the help of her childhood friend Patrik. Patrik and Erica, who are on their way to a romantic holiday, make a detour to the beautiful village of Kungshamn. They soon become involved in the case. Erica hides her real identity as the policemans wife and is invited to join the museum association. Already during the first meeting she attends the associations chairman is found murdered... The three deaths are now officially opened for investigation, and the common denominator between the victims seems to have been an interest in the wreckage of a 1820s ship. Did somebody finally find it? And what cargo did it carry? What caused the ship to sink? Written by Tre Vänner

Stale and forced, not up to the proud Swedish tradition
9 January 2015 | by OJTSee all my reviews

The Camilla Läckberg crime novels has been a great success in her native country Sweden, and a lot of other countries as well. I have read a couple of them, and must admit I don't think they keep the standard I like from my crime novels. So no wonder the films based upon the books are such great stuff either. Because, they're not. Full of quite talentless dialog, it's rather difficult to take them seriously. They could have done this in a better way by fixing the most of the lame dialog, but the incidents leading up to each and every happening also feels rather forced.

Two French divers are found drowned outside the small-town Kungshamn, and the investigation starts. People all over is acting odd, and getting a museum is the most important thing. A strange pirate history is also infiltrated, from way back when. Nat a very exciting plot, but I'm sad to say it's also quite messy told.

Being quite a fan of earlier Swedish TV-series, I thing it been going downhill since the Wallander-series. This is probably the wort of them so far. It's quite stale storytelling, incoherent and forced in many ways. The dialog doesn't come natural in most dialog. It doesn't take more than 10 minutes before this is obvious. Otherwise good actors are struggling with both on screen and with the dialog. Quite hard to watch.
