Jaidee seems to have died twice, both at Ofärdsön (Misfortune Island) and during the tsunami catastrophe. Bäckström wants to interrogate the widower Daniel, but Hwass puts a stop to it as the tsunami is a sensitive issue and besides - it can’t possibly have been his wife that was found on the island. Bäckström remains firm in his belief. The investigative team doubt Bäckström as well, but he doesn't give up and continues to follow up on his leads - behind Hwass' back.
