    • QUOTES (3)

      • Svedberg: The Crime Bureau have got a database for abbreviations and acronyms, haven't they?
        Martinsson: Yeah, but I wouldn't want to be the schmuck who has to trawl though that lot, for three letters? God! (everyone turns to stare at him)... Oh right, it's me, isn't it?

      • Man: Thought they would have sent a police car. Lights. Flashing.
        Wallander: There was an accident on the Svarte Road. Cars with lights are all taken.

      • Mats Ekholm: Your killer appears to have crossed a psychological boundary. Virtually anyone can commit murder or manslaughter without premeditation. On the surface, he can live a completely normal life. He has two identities that he controls utterly.
        Wallander: Fine. So now we know that we're looking for someone who seems completely normal... on the surface. Very helpful.
