On the breakwater rocks outside of Malmö Sweden, the horribly mutilated body of a woman is found. Her flesh has been tortured from the body except for the right buttocks where the insignia of Sweden, The Three Crowns, has been tattooed. Awoken from a quiet Sunday morning, Chief Detective Carl Blomqvuist is called to the scene to begin the investigation into the gruesome crime. The identity of the woman is quickly discerned, leading Carl into a wave of international conflict, murder, kidnapping and a baffling manhunt. Based in 1983 Sweden around actual events, "For Sweden's Honor: The Cold War Murders" address's the issues of national sovereignty, national patriotism and the lengths individuals go for national pride.
