Eva Rose returns as police inspector Maria Wern in two new movies based on the bestselling crime novels by Swedish author Anna Jansson. After the death of her husband, Maria moves to the picturesque Swedish island of Gotland with her two children to start over. While struggling to raise two children on her own and still mourning her husband's death, Maria manages to sustain her female perspective and approach to life in a harsh and male-dominated environment. She constantly encounters rage, death and evil but remains determined to endure what sometimes feels like an unwinnable battle.
After intervening in a fistfight and getting herself beat up, Maria heads the investigation into a murder that occurred very close to the place where she was assaulted. When more bodies turn up, Maria and her team try to discover if the incidents could be related. They come up against extreme reluctance by potential witnesses to assist the police, and the team scrambles to find the killer before he strikes again.
Not Until The Giver Is Dead
Just as Medieval Week is about to begin in Visby, a 70-year-old woman is killed in a suspected arson. Then a series of murders occur, and the evidence leads Maria Wern and her colleagues to a small village where everyone knows everyone. The discovery of some documents in Latin, along with incomprehensible drawings, turns the investigators' suspicions towards the rituals of the upcoming Medieval celebrations.
