Jesper Berg has fled to Poland where he gives a secret interview to a journalist from Der Spiegel. In the interview he claims that with their new trade agreement, Norway, led by Anita Rygg, is about to give Minnikov's oil company total power over the Norwegian shelf. Anita asks Sidorova to stop Minnikov, but Sidorova claims she can only get Russia to listen if she can give them Jesper Berg. The Russians have tracked him down in Poland and want the Norwegian authorities to arrest him. The group hiding Jesper is ready to sell him to the Norwegian authorities, but when they realize the Russians are behind the agreement, they change their mind. They bring Jesper out in the forest and stage his death. The video of Jesper being shot makes its way to Norwegian Intelligence and the apparent murder is a huge blow to Anita Rygg. In reality, Jesper Berg has made his way to Brussels. HM is obsessed with finding out if anyone else was involved in his daughter's kidnapping. He eventually learns that more people are involved and that they most likely are from within the system. At the hotel, Minnikov discovers that Bente has tapped his phone. He threatens both Bente and Maja, and Bente, in a burst of emotion, pushes Minnikov out a window to his death.
