- Gran...

- Is that you, dear?

- I keep having that awful dream.

- You had a nasty experience.

It's only natural to dream about it,

but it will fade in time.

- I'm sorry I woke you, gran.

- Call whenever you like.

See you on Friday then.

I love you.

Sweet dreams.


...women under threat...


Yes, it is.

It's not quite what we're looking for,

but thank you for calling.

Why don't you contact one

of the other papers? Goodbye.

Good morning.

- Things under control?

- Pretty much. How about you?

I see...

one? Thank you very much.

An ambulance is heading for the

free port. A possible murder. Spike?

- What?

- The free port. A possible murder.

Put Berit on it.

The area's been cordoned off.

No trace of the suspects.

A delicate situation...

- been here long?

- A half an hour.

- And this wasn't an accident?

- No.

- What are we dealing with here?

- A man, shot in the head.

- Executed?

- Most likely...

- Swedish?

- No.


- Is his nationality known?

- No...

good morning.

Nice hat, is it yours?

- It's yours, isn't it?

- That's right. Thanks.

Good morning.

Who's been messing

with my computer?

I borrowed it. I got in early and...

I hope you don't mind?

- I come to work and that girl...

- Annika.

- Her wardrobe was on my desk!

- Is that so...?

I'm entitled to know if she's decided

to sit somewhere else.

- She meddled with my computer!

- That's the limit.

It's the bloody limit! Are we

having a "let's trade places" day?

- Then I should have been informed!

- Simmer down...

I don't like being shuffled around.

You know where I think she belongs!

Schyman wants to have a word.

- Shall I hang up your jacket?

- No, thanks...

Eva-Britt Quist here.

One moment, please. - Spike?

There are 250 computers here.

Did you have to go pick Eva-Britt's?

She wasn't here.

I got in early and kaja

was using the pc we share.

So I used Eva-Britt's. Is that a crime?

It damn well is!

What did we hire you to do?

- Edit copy and answer the phone.

- Then do it.

I do, during business hours.

- But I am a reporter.

- Not at the moment.

I got a tip yesterday about

an organization called paradise -

- For women whose lives

are threatened. It's a good story.

Annika, I had to push like hell

to get you this position.

You don't get to write and definitely

not about some women's paradise!

Your turn, spike.

Eva-Britt Quist...

the pictures

of the free port victim are in.

The police are trying to identify him.

This is no ordinary killing,

this was an execution.

Listen, spike...

- you look a little tired.

- Tired?

I'm not tired, I feel sharp.

Everything's under control.

- So Im wrong about what I see?

- What do you see?

That you're drunk.

- You're being paranoid.

- I am?

I've been clean for two months now,

and you know it.

I'm the best reporter

this fucking paper has.

Can I run with this, or do

I have to hand it over to Berit?

Run with it.

Just don't make me have

to come pick up the pieces after you.

Close the door behind you.

Hello, it's Annika Bengtzon.

I'd be glad to get together. For lunch.

Same place as last time. See you.

Cut that out... all right. Bye.

It's me. Got anything for me?

We work with people living

under threat who need to disappear.

And that's not really possible

nowadays. Everything's on record.

There are 60 data banks in Sweden

listing practically everyone.

I spent the first six months

mapping out their procedures -

- And figuring out how

to get around them, and now I know.

So it's possible for paradise to

completely erase a person's identity.
