When Harry is released from prison, he finds his foster father, the Monk, dying with a serious liver condition. He promises him to find his estranged son Ludvig before it is too late. However, Ludvig is a serial women-killer who is an inmate in a highly secured prison in Sweden. Peter and Martin, who work for Harry, come up with a spectacular plan to free Ludvig. It succeeds and on his arrival in Denmark, Ludvig immediately wants to raise money for the Monk’s liver transplant. With Harry, he decides to rob a bank, but having been out of orbit for some years, this proves more difficult than they imagined. To escape they have to take a hostage. Finally they decide to hijack a military plane carrying out a big money transportation. They get it airborne, throw the pilots out, but the only problem is: how do they land this thing, get the money out and escape the police and the anti-terror forces?
