Captain Carlsen agrees to work with the police. On the ferry, it transpires that one crew member has something to hide.
Errant wives and the consequences of their actions provided a sub-plot of this double bill. A depressed man accepts blame for a murder he as not committed and then commits suicide in spectacular fashion in a way that no police officer has anticipated.

Her new boyfriend being around doesn’t help reassure Andri that it wasn’t just a final hurrah.
The ships captain has things to offer a prosecution case in exchange for his own freedom. What he knows is unclear as the main person everyone was afraid of is now under lock and key and on his way to Reykjavik.

Andri has another job to do which will probably irrevocably harm his chances of a happy family life.
