The movie is about a young translator who is also an aspiring author, David ( Benno Fürmann), who receives a nasty surprise when his wife, Eva (Tuva Novotny), tells him that she is in love with her therapist and is pregnant with his baby. David cannot accept that truth and in a moment of despair mixed with rage decides to do something drastic, kill his wife by sabotaging the brakes in her car. When Eva disappears the authorities interrogate David, but they lack any concrete evidence so they quickly shelve the case. Intrigo is said to be an entertaining movie with an absorbing story and nice acting just like Daniel Alfredson's previous films like "The Girl Who Played With Fire" or "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest".
