Anders Economides is trying to balance his life between his family and his demanding job as an Inspector, at Örebro’s PD. Unlike many Scandinavian cops, he’s not an alcoholic; he doesn’t suffer from depression; but he’s a junkie of his own kind.  He gets his fix by solving crimes and helping justice prevail.  In fact, after quitting smoking and replacing cigarettes with a komboloi, a traditional Greek rosary, that is used by former smokers to keep their fingers busy, solving crimes is his only fix.  That explains his fixation on Johan Linné, a former Marine officer, who runs an underground drug business.
