Synopsis:
Police officer Stig Nyman is murdered by an unseen assailant brandishing a bayonet. His colleagues Beck (Carl-Gustaf Lindstedt), Rönn (Håkan Serner) and Kollberg (Sven Wollter) pick up the case quickly, keen to solve the crime on one of their own. Investigating Nyman and drawing up a list of potential suspects leads the team to discover he was a lousy cop who abused his power with a history of brutality. As their search draws closer they are caught unaware by a rooftop assassin with a sniper rifle, picking off every cop he can.
