Annika Season 1 Plot Summary

The story veneers the experienced detective inspector Annika Strandhed, who gets recently transferred from Norway to Glasgow Marine Homicide Unit, Scotland to solve the complicated and unsolved crimes happening in Scotland’s waters. But unfortunately, her appointment doesn’t make her colleagues much happy. In the series, we witness two plots happening simultaneously, one Annika as a detective solving crimes and the other Annika as a mother of an arrogant teenage girl. 

The story begins with Annika taking up her new role with her team of dedicated officers. The first itself is challenging enough. Annika and her team get called up to take up the case of a murder of a man who is found dead in the Clyde. A harpoon was pierced into the dead man’s head, which clearly shows how he died. When they start investigating the case, all the evidence points toward the jilted lover. But the case gets more complicated when they reveal darker secrets.

Meanwhile, adding more to her already messed up head, her daughter Morgan gets suspended from school. Coming back to the case, soon they land up in the murder case of a scientist, whose body is found in Loch Katrine. The only thing that connected the two murders is their death happened in the water-so something is really nasty with the water. The next case she deals with is the murder case of the writer Cara Gibson, whose writings have spoiled a lot of careers and left a lot of people suffering. She was found dead under the bridge.

But who has the guts to push her off the bridge and kill her? the next case is the murder of a man who was pushed into the water from a party boat. He was celebrating his anniversary with his wife and friends. But things take a turn when his wife becomes the prime suspect in his murder. The team again gets called up to solve the murder case of a young woman murdered on the Glasgow docks. 

It is therefore worth waiting and watching what story plot Annika Season 2 will bring along.
