Music Millennium

He's got no style, he's got no flash and he's squarely in middle age. But Swedish detective Martin Beck is good at one thing: methodically catching criminals so that they can be put away... for a long time. His tightly-wound partner, Gunvald, is his opposite: an impulsive man who cuts a dashing figure, is in no way politically correct and who never met a boundary he didn't leap across. He ll do anything to get information from a suspect, including enhanced interrogation techniques. It's classic good cop/bad cop, and together with their team they bring down dangerous criminals lurking in the seedy Stockholm underworld. Beck's a loner but he's not anti-social; he regularly sees his daughter, with whom he now has a much better relationship than when he was neglecting her growing up. And at the end of a workday, there's always an interesting conversation and a nightcap with a neighbor who gives new meaning to the word quirky. EPISODE 1: THE DECOY BOY - After the bodies of two immigrant boys are discovered, the police received an anonymous message from a group called the Swedish Front: The slaughter has begun. Beck and his team find a lead through a website where young boys are sold for sex, but time is running out for them to locate the next victim before the killer strikes again. EPISODE 2: THE MAN WITH THE ICONS - An elderly woman is found murdered. The prime suspect is her husband, a deeply-religious man who collects Russian icons. His grief appears genuine, yet his story doesn't exactly check out. Could the real killer still be at large? EPISODE 3: WHITE NIGHTS - a truck driver is killed in a sting operation - and the dead man turns out to be Beck's long-lost son. Beck's world crumbles around him, and he loses focus. When he returns to the investigation, it's with renewed passion this time it's personal.
