Wallander forgets his gun in a bar and is suspended. With time on his hands, he looks into the disappearance of his daughter's father-in-law who may have been involved in the death of a young sailor during an international incident back in the '80's with a submarine entering Swedish waters.Written by
Since the previous season, things have not gone well for our hero. He is sort of a mess. After a visit to see his daughter, his granddaughter, and her husband and his family, he stops at a bar/restaurant to have something to eat. The waiter is rude because it is near closing and ultimately asks if he can have a drink. Unfortunately, when he wakes up, he can't find his service pistol. It has been left at the bar and he can't remember much about it. The next day the gun has been returned to the precinct. He is suspended for four weeks and is now suspected of being an alcoholic by his superior. The case has to do with Linda's husband's father who was a hero in the war. It turns out that his feet may be made of clay and his wife begins to investigate. The father apparently was playing in deep water and disappears from time to time to deal with the political implications of a sailor's death, supposedly at the hands of the Russians. This is a startling episode. It will be interesting to see how Kurt handles his demons. There are several scenes where he blacks out. He almost loses his little granddaughter when he leaves her on a street in her stroller.
