Based on the novels by Liza Marklund

Based on author Liza Marklund's best-selling crime novels, Annika Bengtzon is a journalist and working mother of two struggling to keep her marriage alive. Fearless in her search for the truth, she won't take no for an answer from anyone: not from prestigious academicians or drug dealers or from colleagues inside her own profession. Her passion for getting the story may bring her into dangerous situations, but it ultimately allows her to peer into the heart of every crime. Annika's not afraid to square off with hardened criminals, but her toughest challenge seems to be trying to balance the job with her sometimes tumultuous private life.

Nobel's Last Will - While covering the annual Nobel Prize Banquet, Annika witnesses the spectacular murder of two prestigious individuals right in front of her. She's a key witness, so she's bound by the police not to disclose anything. It's the story of a lifetime, and she can't write a word.

Prime Time - On her way to a family gathering, Annika has to leave her two children in the care of her boyfriend so she can report on the murder of a famous TV host. The ten people who'd just spent the night at a mansion where the host's program is taped are under suspicion; Annika learns that her best friend is among them.

Studio Sex - When a stripper from a club called Studio Sex is killed, the case becomes political dynamite after the police find out that the Minister of Trade visited the club on the night of the murder. Working the story also brings up bad memories for Annika and she finds herself taking it all personally.

The Red Wolf - In the dark winter of northern Sweden, a journalist is murdered. Annika senses that the killing is linked to a terrorist attack 40 years ago, about which the journalist knew too much. Her investigation brings her into a world of old loyalties that began with the 1960s leftists and extends into the liberal government of today.

Lifetime - Lonely and divorced, Annika spends most of her time at work to forget her private misfortunes. She reports on the strange case of a young female police officer who's accused of killing her policeman husband and hiding her young son. She also suspects that there's more to this story than an enraged wife.

A Place In The Sun - Annika travels to Costa del Sol, Spain, to cover a story about a Swedish family who was killed during a burglary. As she investigates, it becomes clear that the murders are connected to a drug trade that reaches from the hashish farms of Morocco to the streets of Sweden.

Paradise - While working on a story about Paradise, a foundation that claims to protect abused women, Annika stumbles across a murder in Stockholm's harbor. While seeking the truth - and a good story - Annika finds herself drawn to Thomas, a married civil servant also interested in discovering the truth about Paradise. They both sense fraud behind the facade of charity.

Deadline - Annika tries to uncover the details behind a devastating bomb blast in the newly-constructed Olympic Stadium, which left the head of the organizing committee dead. As the investigation proceeds, she finds herself at odds with both the police and her superiors. Unlike them, she has a gut feeling that the bombing wasn't a terrorist attack but personally motivated.
