[quiet, ominous music playing]
[Iwo] I'm sure you have many questions.
Are you afraid?
You're angry.
You're wondering if you've gone crazy.
Whether any of this is true.
It's me.
I'm still your husband.
I love you.
That's the only thing that matters.
Everything else is illusory.
[quiet, ominous music continues]
Once you discover the truth about Forst,
you'll understand everything about me.
I've created myself anew.
He never had that chance.
He destroys everything he touches.
Which is why I'm asking you, Dominika
to think hard
about what's most important to you.
[music becomes sinister]
Your career or your family?
[music becomes moody and dramatic]
or us?
I've left some documents for you.
They'll help you make the right choice.

[long beep]
[quiet, dramatic music continues]
Where are we going?
[Forst] To a friend's place.
You'll have to forgive me, my dear,
but I don't have anything prepared yet.
You see, Wiktor doesn't understand
that women need time for certain things.
You'll be sleeping over there.
[music stops]
I will?
I'll stay here overnight.
Please don't go.
[quiet, dramatic music resumes]
I have to find Agata.
That can't happen if I'm here.
[music fades out]
- [Agata moaning quietly and sniffling]
- [wind howling faintly]
Be a good girl, now.
- [quiet, tense music playing]
- [Agata sobs quietly]
Everything will be just fine.
Forst could never
have given you anything like this.
[Agata becomes quiet]
I'll take good care of you.
[breathing deeply]
[music becomes ominous]
Here's a present for you.

- [people chattering]
- [telephones ringing]
[Wadryś-Hansen] Hello.
[man] Good morning.
[door shuts]
This isn't a good time, Prosecutor.
Are you busy looking for Wiktor Forst?
My daughter.
Agata's been kidnapped by the same man
who's responsible for the recent murders.
And no, it's not Forst.
I've got something I want you to see.
Two years ago during an intervention,
Wiktor Forst overstepped his authority,
the result of which
was the death of a child.
- I already know the story.
- [tense, dramatic music playing]
He was demoted and transferred here
on disciplinary terms.
These kinds of things happen.
So you know he was
facing five years in prison?
Yes, I'm aware of that.
And do you know what the explanation
he gave was? Because I do.
- Yes, of course, I've read it.
- Mm-hm
But I disagree with him.
According to him, all procedures,
including the use of a firearm,
were followed according to the law.
Were you aware of the fact
that Wiktor Forst was diagnosed
with bipolar affective disorder?
Not discussing confidential medical data.
So you do know how sick he is.
He's had manic-depressive episodes
that are so severe
that Forst's doctor said he has trouble
distinguishing what's wrong
from what's right.
And he should be removed
from the police force.
What I would like to know is why you
decided to ignore that report entirely?
Because the subsequent examination
undermined those conclusions. We done?
I also discovered that Wiktor Forst
grew up in this area.
In an orphanage.
Which was being managed by Halina Król
whose maiden name is Sznajderman.
Yeah? So what?
Are you serious?
Are you being thick,
or do you see no connection?
A mentally disturbed man
comes back to the place
he associates with every terrible thing.
- Childhood trauma, pain, loneliness.
- Ah.
He comes back, the depressive episodes
start coming back, and he starts killing!
- Mm-hm.
- Halina Sznajderman is on his list.
But there are probably others,
most likely the girl
with whom he's in a secret relationship.
The police inspector's daughter.
[tense, dramatic music continues]
I don't want you to say
another word about her.
Unless you can tell me where to find her.
Didn't think so.
We're done here. I need to talk to my men.
[man] Wait.
I'll do it.
What'd you say?
[man] You can't be part
of the search party.
You're too emotionally
involved in the case.
Too emotionally involved?
[door opens and closes]
My daughter's kidnapped and you're fucking
telling me I'm too emotionally involved?
I promise you we'll find her.
[tense, dramatic music continues]
Leave it to us.
[door opens]
[inhaling] Listen up.
We're all aware of what's happened, right?
[inhaling] I want you to head to Podhale
and turn it inside out.
Check every single cellar,
every shepherd's hut,
every abandoned building.
Then turn over every single fucking rock,
and interrogate every single
criminal scumbag you find.
Don't ignore any phone calls whatsoever.
We're gonna check up on every single lead,
no matter how absurd it seems.
There's a madman out there
who's trying to hurt one of our own.
All right, get to work.
[people chattering]
[dramatic music intensifies]
[music fades out]
[Agata's recorded
muffled screaming and crying]
[pills clattering]
[approaching footsteps]
Four, four, eight.
One, four
- [sighs]
- Maybe I can help.
[Agata moaning]
[muffled scream]
[Forst] There's one cut on the left arm
and four on the right.
[breathing deeply]
- There are four of them
- [quiet, ominous music playing]
on the left one.
There are four cuts
on the right thigh and eight on the left.
And a bunch of chaotic
cuts on the abdomen.
[Szrebska] Are they letters?
[Forst] I think so.
And And then these are numbers.
One, four, four, eight.
1448, is that date significant?
[Forst breathes deeply]
That's an "R."
[music becomes mysterious]
The mountains?
Is it meters above sea level?
- It's wrong. Rysy is around 2,500 meters.
- Hang on.
- Okay, play it again.
- That can't be it
- Wait.
- [Agata sobbing]
Hey, wait. Pause it there.
[moody, dramatic music playing]
Go back.
[Agata sobbing]
Hear that?
He said something.
Turn it up.
[music fades out]
Oh, for fuck's sake,
I can't hear anything.
- Okay.
- [Agata crying]
Gimme a sec. [clears throat]
[Iwo] "And his word burned like a torch."
[Agata continues sobbing]
[Iwo] "He brought a famine upon them."
"his zeal, he made them few in number.
By the word of the Lord"
Oh, fuck!
[recording stops]
What is it?
A Bible. Nina must have a Bible somewhere.
Why a Bible?
Here it is.
It's not a date.
Or a height.
[Szrebska] And the letters?
[Forst] It's not "RYS."
It's "SYR."
- Sirach.
- [mysterious music playing]
One of the authors.
[flipping pages]
This book is from the Old Testament.
[flipping pages]
Here it is. "The Book of Sirach."
Um. Chapter
forty eight.
[mysterious music continues]
Lines one to four.
Here it is. "Then,
arose Elijah."
[wind howling]
[young Iwo] "Then, arose Elijah."
- "A prophet like fire."
- [Forst] "A prophet like fire."
[Iwo] "And his word burned like a torch."
[Forst] "And his word
burned like a torch."
"He brought a famine upon them."
[door creaking]
[wind howling]
"And by his zeal, he made them few"
"He made them few in number."
[tense, dramatic music playing]
Those cuts were for me.
He was sending me a message.
I know where Agata is.
- How do you know?
- [music becomes more dramatic]
Wait, Wiktor.
Whatever happened at the orphanage,
whatever you did to Iwo,
if you hurt him,
he still doesn't have the right to kill.
None of this is your fault.

[quiet, mysterious music
playing over singing]
[man] Thank you
[gloves squeaking]
[singing stops]
[mysterious music continues]
[music fades out]
Did we have an appointment?
But I would like to speak with you.
We've got nothing to talk about.
I believe that
you killed Halina Sznajderman.
You also tried
to kill one of her associates,
as well as the journalist, Olga Szrebska.
What do you want?
Have a chat with me.
[cell phone beeps]
You met Detective Wiktor Forst
five years ago in Zakopane.
- Is that true?
- [sighs]
[distant wind howling]
[inhales deeply] I understand
that he was looking for information
about his childhood in your archives.
I suppose so.
Would you mind saying a bit more about
his behavior that day?
[quiet, tense music playing]
Uh, he was behaving
in an obsessive manner.
He was especially hateful about
my mother.
He felt he was her son,
even though she was just
the director of his orphanage.
When he returned to Zakopane,
the memories came flooding back.
And what makes you think that?
Wiktor Forst said it.
He told me himself in a moment of clarity.
[music becomes ominous]
- [cell phone beeps]
Why are you doing this?
[music becomes moody]
For the same reasons you have.
To protect my loved ones.

[loud cracking sound]
[young Iwo] Wiktor!
[mysterious music playing]
[cracking sound]
[whispering] It's all because of you!
Come with me!
Leave it!
Let's leave!
Come on!

[music fades out]
[screams painfully]
[Forst gasps and coughs]
- [Iwo] Looks like you solved the puzzle.
- [Forst coughing]
[tense, dramatic music playing]
It's too bad it took you so long.
[Forst groans]
If you had gotten here
a little bit earlier
everything might have
turned out differently.
Or maybe not?
Now you're going to answer
for something that you haven't done.
You lured Agata here.
She loved you.
She trusted you, unconditionally.
She kept screaming, "Wiktor!"
"Wiktor! No!"
And right when you were
slitting her pretty, little throat,
she stabbed you in the liver
with a pickaxe.
