A sniper is terrorising Ystad. The victims are all connected to a robbery of a jewellery store. Wallander discovers that the events are linked to a criminal organisation. During the sniper’s attempt to kill the last people involved in the robbery, Wallander’s colleague Pontus gets caught in a chase of life and death. Wallander is now forced to head an investigation where one of his own people could be the next victim and where the solution turns out to be more complicated than expected.
