Lars, the schizophrenic samurai, began the episode by killing his doctor and then trying to commit suicide. This was part of a synchronised campaign by TT to draw attention to the “care in the community” support given to the mentally ill. Lars refused to talk about “No One” which enraged Martin to the point that he hit Lars despite knowing the interview was being recorded. Martin’s wife was amused by Saga’s lack of social grace but if only she had known about who was really being insulting to her at that dinner table.

Henning, the compromised police officer, worried that his change of heart about committing perjury might lead to being frozen out by his colleagues or worse still losing his job. He didn’t tell the truth in the end, which led to his apparent murder at the end of the episode.

Stefan was attacked in his own flat by the husband of the woman Stefan had rescued. Stefan used his hot, heavy iron to beat him to a bloody dead pulp. Annoyingly for Stefan, Martin chose that moment to ring Stefan’s door bell. The body had disappeared by the time  they came back to the living room, with Stefan having apparently moved it before answering the door. I wondered momentarily if he had imagined the whole thing.

Saga continued to worry about unwritten laws and social niceties. Martin picked up a box of files from Charlotte and bedded her while he was there because she looked quite vulnerable when she took off her wig. He claimed to have cheated on his wife once before a long time ago  – aye right! Presumably this alluded to August. August looked very shifty in a later scene when Saga turned up at Martin’s house just as dinner was about to start.

Anja’s mother feigned concern for her missing daughter. Lars gave a description of No One, allowing the police to check the illegal shop camera which had recorded him bumping into Anja. Anja was shot just before Saga reached her. Saga, having learned that people find lies reassuring in times of crisis, told Anja she’d be fine so she spent her last moments drawing a sketch of the eyes and nose of No One. He looked like the “actor” from the earlier episode.

Saga went to her usual nightclub and again bumped into the random sex partner from an earlier episode. this time though she wanted dinner first – he followed like a puppy. She must have been good first time.

Saga and Martin entered Stefan’s flat looking for evidence. Although there was no body, there was blood in the gap between the floor boards.  There was also a store cupboard full of medical supplies including the kind of drain that Bjorn had been hooked up to the week before. I guess now we know why  Stefan went into the hospital store when he was visiting his sister. There was also an empty box of wine which was the same brand as the wine which was used to kill the homeless people.

Henning turned up in the basement of the shop which was run by Saif the brother of the murdered boy in the trial that Henning gave false evidence at. He was tied up and both were confused about how he had got there. Saif needed to get Henning out without his family being implicated. “Fuck” sounds the same in Swedish but was translated anyway. Saif didn’t have the killer instinct and despite his best intentions didn’t managed to beat Henning. Henning was released and walked right into the sights of TT who, dressed as a policemen, raised his gun and shot him dead. Perhaps he really is a police officer?

Ferbe was given an exclusive by Martin who then accidentally spilled coffee over him and used the distraction to replace the sim from his phone allowing Saga to receive the next call from TT instead of the press. TT was determined to work with Ferbe however and called a fellow journalist to demand to talk to Ferbe. How did he know that number too? This week’s issue was the inequitable treatment of immigrants by the law.  TT did eventually call Saga back and asked her some questions which are obviously clues for her to work out.  Ferbe later took a lot of drugs at the nightclub and collapsed on the floor. He died during the night and was out for more than 2 minutes. What perturbed him most was that there was no tunnel, no light, only darkness.

Martin’s wife worked out that he had slept with Charlotte and kicked him out. He gave some idiotic excuses about being worried about his manhood after the operation but she wasn’t impressed.

Saga was followed home by August who stayed overnight. She really didn’t get why this was such a problem for Martin.
