Alison Graham

The clutch of Swedish detectives known, laughably, as the A-Team, are a lackadaisical bunch. There’s a serial killer on the loose who’s flown in specially from America to murder people in the most outré way imaginable (it involves the unconventional use of pliers) and what are this lot doing? Variously getting drunk and maudlin, picking up women in nightclubs, copping off with a priest and having sexy times with the wife.

The killer has given them the slip once by tricking his way onto an aircraft, after murdering a literary critic just for his plane ticket. So The A-Team’s boss Jenny Hultin nips over to the States for a chat with the FBI.

About this programme

3/10. In the second two-part adaptation of a crime novel by Arne Dahl, the A Unit races to stop an American murderer on board a plane from New York to Stockholm landing in Sweden, in the hope of preventing the country from inadvertently importing its first serial killer. In collaboration with the FBI, the team begins a desperate attempt to catch him. Swedish drama, starring Irene Lindh.
