Robert Kastell returns to Sweden after having been presumed dead for thirty years. A personal tragedy has made him leave his exile, and sent him on a last journey of revenge - - the target being the successful arms trade broker Anders Speths. Robert is soon discovered by Rolf Höglund, a conspiracy theorist and former journalist. Rolfs tries to persuade Robert to focus on exposing the double standards and illegal deals behind the Swedish arms industry, rather that his personal vendetta. Robert knows that much of what Rolf talks about is true. He was himself a part of this dirty business before he faked his death and fled the country. When Rolf mysteriously disappears, his daughter Åsa gets very worried and filled with guilt. The last thing she said to her father was that he was crazy conspiracy theorist and an alcoholic. Her husband Mario uses Rolf's history with addiction to ease her worries. He's probably only on a binge. He'll soon turn up again. Meanwhile, Anders Speths - - who is ...
Good, but not among the finest Swedish crime series
Sweden has always been a big producer and exporter of weapons, and with modern times and approaches, it is natural that there are many people opposing it or at leasy trying to find attenuating circumstances. All this is the leitmotif in Ingen utan skuld - sometime "outworked", but at times just preachy.
In spite of pleasant actors present, the characters are often arid (except one - see below) and try to develop a story with distant/cruel past and "painful" present; so the events are not always smooth and there are some excessive scenes and characters. The role of the police is oddly limited, enabling to depict the events hardly plausible in a modern and transparent society Sweden is. So, bearing in mind many other Swedish series (e.g. Innan vi dör, Springfloden), I can consider the series in question above average, but not too catchy.
PS At least one grade from me due to Krister Henriksson as Martin "Marianne" Lindhe; his character and performance is so different I used to know. Definitely the greatest actor in this series.
