In this one, Martin - a policeman through and through - gives up his summer holiday with his family to try and track down a missing journalist and avoid an international incident. He finds himself leaving his island off the coast of Sweden to head to Hungary to search for Alf Matsson who has vanished without a trace from his hotel in Budapest. Matsson checked into the hotel, spent a whole half hour in his room, and walked out of the hotel never to be seen again. Martin follows up clues that lead him through the Eastern underworld and finds him in contact with some very shady journalists. Officials in Hungary seem to want to believe that Matsson is just playing tourist. But Martin refuses to believe that the journalist would have walked off without his passport and the large sum of money hidden in his luggage. But has Matsson disappeared by his own design or has he met foul play? That's what Martin must discover.
