Three elderly men, Holger Eriksson, Gosta Runfeldt and Eugen Blomberg, are murdered in seemingly unrelated incidents. The smell of perfume on Runfeldt's suitcase suggests a woman's involvement. None are mourned by their families, who regarded them as bullies and womanizers, which shocks Wallander, whose own father has just died. A dedication in a book by Eriksson to a woman called Krista leads to the members of a former self-help group for abused women, attended by Vanja, Runfeldt's ex-lover. Is one of these women the killer?

Did You Know?
The Volvo that Wallander (Kenneth Branagh
) drives in the episode should actually be a black Saab, at least according to the registration number MYC222 as found in the Swedish car database. See more
In the first scene with Wallander, he stops his car and the sound of a conventional hand brake is heard. The Volvo V70 II does, however, have an electronic parking brake, which does not make such a sound. See more
