THE INSPECTOR AND THE SEA – WILD NIGHTS (GERMANY/2015/CRIME/THRILLER)
Der Kommissar und das Meer – Wilde Nachte
A woman’s body is found near the cliffs of Gotland, Sweden and her 12-year-old daughter is now alone. As inspectors investigate, questions abound: was her daughter involved in the death? How is the young couple expecting to adopt related to all this?
Idyllically located on the Swedish island of Gotland, the medieval town of Visby looks like a picture of innocence. But behind the facades of its brightly colored houses lurk evildoers of all stripes, con men, kidnappers, killers. Solving the island's crimes is the job of German inspector Robert Anders, an engaging, laid-back family man. Based on the bestselling crime novels of Mari Jungstedt. Suspense in spectacular landscapes!
A corpse is discovered near the cliffs of Gotland: Elisabeth Nygren, whom no one seemed to have known... It is unclear what role her 12-year-old daughter Fippa played in her mother's death. While the inspectors are still busy identifying the corpse, Fippa is on her own, fleeing desperately and committing thefts to obtain food. She then finds refuge in a children's home, but there, too, she is threatened by a man whom the police know well. Meanwhile, Lena Hofelt is looking forward to the birth of her adoptive child; less delighted is her husband Tobias. Suddenly Fippa surprises Lena and threatens her with a knife. Then she disappears again, and now it's not only the inspector who's looking for her, but Tobias as well, who seems to have known the murder victim Elisabeth better than anyone else...
