Lesson In Love is the second of the three Wallander stories making up the final season.
As the episode begins Wallander and his colleagues discover a middle-aged woman’s body half-buried in the forest swamp. As they search the victim’s home, it becomes clear there has been an intruder – and more disturbingly, that the victim’s teenage daughter is missing.
The search for the missing girl leads Wallander down a treacherous path, towards some bikers who have been causing a stir in the local area. Wallander feels increasingly threatened by one of them in particular and begins to suspect that he’s being followed.
The return of a long-lost love provides Wallander with a much-needed distraction, but, just as we think Wallander may finally prioritise his personal life, an unexpected shadow starts to haunt him…
