Shortly after a crowded New York-bound flight takes off from Stockholm, a bomb threat is found on board.

Fredrika Bergman, familiar with the deportation case through her work in the Justice Department, now returns to the police force to act as a liaison between Police Superintendent Alex Recht, and the abrasive Eden Lundell, agent with the Security Service's counter-terrorism unit.
