In Before The Frost Wallander is asked for help by a friend of Linda, his daughter. However before he can help the girl disappears, meanwhile he has his hands full when the cremated body of an elderly lady is found in a shallow grave. The murder appears to be the work of someone with an obsession with religion.
In the original novel Linda has decided to enter the police force and the investigation is mostly carried out by her with Wallander often on the sidelines but the actual plot remains substantially the same.
