It seems Mats was a man everybody liked yet nobody knew – a man with something to hide.

His high school sweetheart Nathalie, has just returned to the area with her five-year old son could she shed light on who Mats really was?.

There are a vast amount of characters in this story. You will need follow the story closely. Once you have mastered all the characters you will see that all come together.

The truth is he was in a very unpleasant incident shortly before he moved from Goteborg to Fjallbacka. When he used to live in Goteborg he told a group of young thugs not to urinate outside his door to his building. Mats was so badly injured that he needed hospital treatment.

He was laying in his flat in the hall on his stomach with a big hole in his head. The Tanum police and technicians now set up an investigation to find out who shot Mats and why?
