A mother and daughter form an investigative team on the Baltic Sea island of Usedom in WALTER PRESENTS: THE NORDIC MURDERS (Der Usedom-Krimi).
After six years in prison, former district attorney Karin returns to her house on the island, a place the locals refer to as the “murder house”. Here, Karin impulsively shot her husband after finding him with a younger lover. The islanders keep their distance, and even Karin’s daughter Julia, who works as a Chief Inspector, doesn’t entirely trust her. But Julia has bigger fish to fry as she investigates a car crash from several years ago in which two people died. The driver has been confined to a wheelchair ever since. Julia is puzzled by the case; was it an accident, could it be murder out of revenge or even suicide? Being a former lawyer, Karin is intrigued and follows her daughter’s investigations, but eventually comes up with a very dangerous idea which puts their relationship to the test…
